Brigidine Sisters Give Thanks

We give thanks for the life of the Vietnamese Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh who died on 22 January 2022 at the age of 95 at Tu Hien Pagoda, the Buddhist temple in Hue, Vietnam, where he entered monastic life at the age of 16 and returned to in 2019 to prepare for his death.

We give thanks for his rich legacy in popularizing mindfulness and introducing countess people to Buddhist ideas and practices thus enriching their lives.

Forced into exile in the 1960s, he lived and taught overseas for five decades, speaking out for nonviolence as a way of life and teaching mindfulness meditation practices. To learn more of his life and legacy go to:
