BLURBS #"When you are a truly happy Christian, you are also a Buddhist. And vice versa."
-- Thich Nhat Hanh
"He is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace, if applied, would build a monument to ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity."
-- Martin Luther King, Jr.
"[Thich Nhat Hanh] shows us the connection between personal, inner peace and peace on earth."
-- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
