Published here for the first time, these fifty poems, explore his journey from young boy in Vietnam to being a leader in Thich Nhat Hanh’s monastic community. The early poems reflect childhood memories of war and destruction yet are also full of romantic and poetic imagery. His later poems convey a profound wisdom and spaciousness of heart. A Zen Master in his own right, he led a life committed to cultivating great compassion and liberation through inner discovery. Light in spirit, loving and wise, sometimes strict, and often humorous, these poems perfectly capture Giác Thanh’s clarity, wisdom, and kindness.
