Lion's Roar deputy editor Andrea Miller met with Thich Nhat Hanh at Blue Cliff Monastery in Pine Hills, New York, for his "Transformation and Healing: The Art of suffering" retreat in August 2013. That interview appears in the January 2014 issue of the magazine. This circle is one of the calligraphies Thay created and gave to the Lion's Roar Foundation on the occasion of that visit and it is offered here in print form.
Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, poet, scholar, and peace activist. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967 by Martin Luther King Jr. for his efforts in generating peace and reconciliation in his native country. Thich Nhat Hanh travels and teaches internationally. He lives at Plum Village Practice Centre in France, a Buddhist monastery for monks, nuns, and laypeople.
