Acting out of love: In memory of Thich Nhat Hanh

Thích Nhất Hạnh, whom his followers simply call Thay (teacher), died in his native Vietnam in late January 2022 at the age of 95. Our compassion goes out to all the people who mourn him and love him. His presence lives on in the lives he touched with his teachings. Our author Marek Zink interviewed Matthias Grümayer for you, who studied comparative religion. He is a Thay disciple, a member of the Order of Interbeing, thus practicing in the Plum Village Tradition.
