Thich Naht Hanh and Engaged Buddhism

Thich Naht Hanh and Engaged Buddhism

A small bundle of resources that explore the life and work of Thich Nhat Hanh using a marketplace, with a factfile on his life including quotes and history. Enough here for a few lessons. Learning Questions include: Who is Thich Naht Hanh? How does he interpret Buddhism? What is my opinion of ‘Engaged Buddhism’? A video included which is an interview between him and Oprah which is quite powerful and insightful for understanding the man behind the religious robes. Activities differentiated by outcome, especially if Kagan seating plans are used.
