Critics Review

  • Thich Nhat Hanh shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth

  • Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity

  • Thich Nhat Hanh does not merely teach peace; Thich Nhat Hanh is peace

    Elizabeth Gilbert
  • Thich Nhat Hanh’s work, on and off the page, has proven to be the antidote to our modern pain and sorrows … His books help me be more human, more me than I was before
