Meet Thich Nhat Hanh~ Zen Master

How do you pronounce Thich Nhat Hanh?
The English pronunciation is: Tik · N'yat · Hawn

If we as members of the human race practice meditation, we can transcend our fear, despair, and forgetfulness. Meditation is not an escape. It is the courage to look at reality with mindfulness and concentration. Meditation is essential for our survival, our peace, our protection.

– from The World We Have

by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh

I read his book 'Living Buddha, Living Christ' when I first starting studying Buddhism. I was so impressed by this master's love of Buddha and Christ. He made some beautiful comparisons about the teachings of both Buddha and Christ through out the entire book. I HIGHLY recommend this book if your are on the path of both eastern and western religion.
