THICH NHAT HANH...Zen Master to appear at Pasadena Civic Auditorium! Peace in every step!

Whenever the subject of Buddhism surfaces in a conversation the gentle persona of the Dalai Lama probably looms large in most minds.

But, there is another Master - in the Zen tradition - who has also carved out a niche as a spiritual leader for a multitude of seekers around the face of the globe.

Of course, I am referring to Thich Nhat Hanh, who resides in a Buddhist compound outside of Paris for a large part of the year, when he is not travelling to the four corners of the earth to spread the message of peace.

A couple of years ago, I  attended one of his peace walks (peace in every step) in downtown Los Angeles.

What a profound spiritual experience that was!

It is because of efforts such as these that Thich Nhat Hanh was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Although the honor was bestowed on Martin Luther King, Thich Nhat Hanh was a worthy candidate none-the-less.

Curiously, the Zen  Master has been on my mind for a couple of weeks.

Today, I understood why, when it was brought to my attention that the respected Buddhist Master will be appearing for a talk at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on September 3rd.

Hopefully, the spiritual one will lead his followers in a meditation, too.

After all, one that I participated in in 2008 was quite an enlightening experience!

See 'ya there!
