Fragrant Palm Leaves

Thich Nhat Hanh: Journals 1962-1966

Thich Nhat Hanh has lived in exile from his native Vietnam since 1966. These remarkable early journals reveal not only an intimate portrait of the Zen master as a young man, but the emergence of a great poet and literary voice of Vietnam. From his years as a student and teaching assistant at Princeton and Columbia, to his efforts to negotiate peace and a better life for the Vietnamese, Fragrant Palm Leaves is an elegant and profound glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world’s most beloved spiritual teachers.
