Praise for Living Buddha, Living Christ

Thich Nhat Hanh is a holy man, for he is humble and devout. He is a scholar of immense intellectual capacity. His ideas for peace if applied, would build a monument of ecumenism, to world brotherhood, to humanity.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

He shows us the connection between personal, inner peace, and peace on earth.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama

The message: Peace, love, and compassion are central to the teachings of Buddha and Christ, and people of both faiths should be tolerant of one another.
