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

Just a simple monk!

Mindfulness is Enlightenment itself. You only need a few seconds to get enlightened. Aware that you are alive, with a body that is strong enough and healthy enough – that is Enlightenment. Our body is a wonder.
