Thich Nhat Hanh - "Peace is Every Step"

Thich Nhat Hanh is an amazing buddhist monk from Vietnam. He came to prominence during the Vietnam war and has played a central role in bringing buddhist teachings to the West. Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the great global peace activists of the last 30-40 years. In fact, Martin Luther King, Jr., nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Below is the trailer for a new documentary on this profound man and his vision for a more humane way of being...

We could all use more of his compassion and love.

If you enjoyed this trailer, here is the entire documentary (52 minutes)

If you'd like to read one of Thich Nhat Hanh's books, you might consider starting with the one that shares the name of this documentary, "Peace Is Every Step."
