Thich Nhat Hahn “Walking the Earth”

Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the most respected and recognized Zen masters in the world, as well as being a renowned poet, peace activist, and human rights advocate. Born in Vietnam, and serving as a Buddhist monk since the age of 16, he was one of the founders of the “engaged Buddhism” movement, choosing to lead a contemplative life while working outside the monastery, helping villagers suffering from the devastation of the Vietnam War. In the early 1960s, he founded the School of Youth Social Service, a relief organization for survivors of the war.

Thich Nhat Hanh was banned from reentering Vietnam after a peace mission to the United States in Europe during 1966 and he has been an expatriate ever since. In 1982, he founded Plum Village, a Buddhist community in France, where he lives and teaches today. He is author of more than 85 publications, including Peace is Every Step, Being Peace, and Peaceful Action, Open Heart.

Zen Master, poet, peace activist, Buddhist monk and human rights advocate, Thich Nhat Hanh, in his humble, soft voice gives a most powerful talk called Walking the Earth.
