"In his peaceful opposition to the Vietnam war, his support for Martin Luther King and most of all his dedication to sharing with others not only how mindfulness and compassion contribute to inner peace, but also how individuals cultivating peace of mind contributes to genuine world peace, Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh lived a truly meaningful life.
I have no doubt the best way we can pay tribute to him is to continue his work to promote peace in the world."
- Dalai Lama
This is news to me!
But he definitely has eternal life, and he performed like unto no one else.
I loved him so much!
And Peace in the World can only be reached, when all of us in the World have Peace within.
Thanks, dear Nada, for sharing all these images!
