‘Smile, breathe and go slowly” – quote: Thich Nhat Hahn

“Smile, breathe and go slowly.ā€ Says Thich Nhat Hanh. Nhat Hahn was one of my favorite discoveries whilst at university studying comparative religions.

He is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk, and enjoyed popularity during the seventies, as a result of his excellent and innovative writings on Buddhism. It appears that he has either maintained his popularity but also recent familiarity amongst facebook users, at least, which qualify that his Thich Nhat Hahn facebook page has now reached the 20k mark. Amazing! But maybe not so surprising – after all, he is a world-renowned teacher, and enjoyed years of popularity, in spite of being just a simple monk, his own words.

His writings are accessible to everyone and speak of everyday things. That was the point of endearment to me, and so practical!

Take a look at his website:
