The Hands of Peace


The Hand of Peace. Photo by: Brian Kipp

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a dialogue between Thich Nhat Hanh and David Suzuki. Of course, I took many pictures of each of them, showing Thay’s gestures, expressions as well as his open and compassionate countenance.

Part way through the discussion I became aware of the separate dialogue that was going on in Thay’s hands. His hands spoke to me of peace, conviction and true empathy, reinforcing his powerful words. ByBrian Kipp

It is not necessary to throw away your tradition or family. Keep everything and introduce mindfulness, peace, joy into it. Your friends will see the value of mindfulness through you–not through what you say, but through your being. — Thich Nhat Hanh
