HANOI, Vietnam -- Thich Nhat Hanh, the revered Zen Buddhist monk who helped spread the practice of mindfulness in the West and socially engaged Buddhism in the East, has died. He was 95. The death was confirmed by a monk at Tu Hieu Pagoda in Hue, Vietnam who said that Nhat Hanh, known as Thay to his followers, died at midnight on Saturday.
Thich Nhat Hanh Ordained as a monk aged 16 in Vietnam, Thich Nhat Hanh soon envisioned a kind of engaged Buddhism that could respond directly to the needs of society. He was a prominent teacher and social activist in his home country before finding himself exiled for calling for peace.
On one level, that is a nonsense statement, as this man was not a theist in any sense I had grown up understanding. Thich Nhat Hanh came to the world’s attention in the 1960s when he forsook monastic isolation to be of service as his country was torn apart by war.
