This book offers a unique dialogue between two of the spiritual giants of our time. Meeting for long, midnight conversations in Paris, two poets and prophetic peacemakers explore together the farthest reaches of truth. East and West flow together in this remarkable book as Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh and Jesuit Daniel Berrigan discuss war and peace, Jesus and Buddha, life and death.
Zen master, poet, monk and peace advocate, Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who has lived in exile in France for 30 years. Through his writings and retreats he has helped countless people of all religious backgrounds to live mindfully in the present moment, to uproot sources of anger and distrust, and to achieve relationships of love and understanding.
