Peace is every step
The shining red sun is my heart.
Each flower smiles with e.
How green, how fresh all that grows.
How cool the wind blows.
Peace is every step.
It turns the endless path to joy - Thich Nhat Hanh
"Peace is every step" is one of three prints of series #1 presented to the Lion’s Roar Foundation editor-in-chief, Melvin McLeod. Thich Nhat Hanh created this original enso Zen Buddhist calligraphy on rice paper, and it integrates simple but poignant phrases that express his simple but powerful dharma teachings.
The calligraphies were large in original size, but have been perfectly re-sized, captured, and offered here in print for you to enjoy.
Thich Nhat Hanh is a renowned Zen Master, poet, and founder of the Engaged Buddhist movement. He does a lot of Western calligraphy, and is one of the few people who is trained in Eastern Art, which is seen in many of his books. He is the author of over a hundred books, which have sold millions of copies worldwide. His most recent books are Inside the Now and No Mud, No Lotus.
Thich Nhat Hanh currently lives at Plum Village practice center in France.
