The sound of one monk jumping
There are enough Zen centers. We need more Zen corners.Those are the words of the Vietnamese Zen master, peace activist and pioneer of 'engaged Buddhism' Thich Nhat Hanh. He was speaking at the Plum Village Meditation Practice Center founded by him in 1969 in the Dordogne, France, and among his many books is the best selling Being Peace. The photo was taken by photojournalist Paul Davis at Plum Village and accompanies a thought-provoking article by him about Thich Nhat Hanh's work. Soundtrack is Smiles of the Buddha by the the Vietnamese composer Ton-That Tiêt. More on his music in Hints of Penderecki, Ligeti and Stimmung.
