Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh straddles two world epochs as one of the most influential Buddhist leaders in our living memory. He fought the ideologies of war and revenge behind the Vietnam War in the 20th century, and has since devoted himself to a myriad of causes in the 21st. From restoring the dignity of Mother Earth to building the foundations of Engaged Buddhism as we recognize it today, Thay's contribution to the growth of modern, socially-sensitive Buddhism is difficult to quantify. Standing tall amongst luminaries like Martin Luther King Jr., Thomas Merton, and more, Thich Nhat Hanh is among the last of his contemporaries who struggled so tirelessly for social justice and peace. This year, 2012, marks his eighty-sixth birthday. Buddhistdoor International has compiled a series of articles and media to celebrate this, in Reverend King's words, holy and devout monk from Vietnam.
