Please join Parallax Press, Blue Cliff Monastery, the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation, and Union Theological Seminary on November 1, 2022 to celebrate the new edition of Vietnam: Lotus in a Sea of Fire.

Originally published in 1967, and one of Thich Nhat Hanh’s first books written in English, this insightful text offers the perspective of the Vietnamese people on what they often refer to as “the American War.”
It remains as relevant today as it was when it was first published, as the United States and Europe continue to grapple with their roles as global powers and the human effects of their military policies.

The event will include a reading from the book, meditation, Dharma Reflections, and more! We look forward to coming together as a community with Blue Cliff Monastery monastics to commemorate and discuss this remarkable book. Reception to follow.

Registration is required to attend in person or join the event online.

Please note: We will gather at 5:45 PM at Thich Nhat Hanh's former home at 306 W 109th Street, New York, NY 10025 for an optional walking meditation to the seminary. In case of inclement weather, we will meet at 6 PM at the seminary for a guided meditation indoors.

Thich Nhat Hanh was a world-renowned spiritual teacher and peace activist. Born in Vietnam in 1926, he became a Zen Buddhist monk at the age of sixteen. Over seven decades of teaching, he published more than 100 books, which have sold more than four million copies in the United States alone. Exiled from Vietnam in 1966 for promoting peace, his teachings on Buddhism as a path to social and political transformation are responsible for bringing the mindfulness movement to Western culture. He established the international Plum Village Community of Engaged Buddhism in France, now the largest Buddhist monastery in Europe and the heart of a growing community of mindfulness practice centers around the world. He passed away in 2022 at the age of 95 at his root temple, Tu Hieu, in Hue, Vietnam.
