Malaysia to host Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh
Eight major Buddhist organizations in the Klang Valley have jointly invited Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, the internationally-acclaimed Buddhist monk, author, and peace activist to Malaysia in September 2010. The eight organizations, which represent both the Theravada and Mahayana traditions involved in this project are Bandar Utama Buddhist Society, Buddhist Gem Fellowship, Nalanda Buddhist Society, Shah Alam Buddhist Society, Subang Jaya Buddhist Association, Than Hsiang Temple, Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia, and Tunku Abdul Rahman College Buddhist Society.
Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh is considered as one of the most influential Buddhist teachers in the world today. He was nominated for the Noble Peace Prize and subsequently led the Buddhist delegation to the Paris Peace Talks during the height of the Vietnam War during the 1960s. In September 2003 he addressed members of the United States Congress, leading them through a two-day retreat. Now based in France where he established the Plum Village Buddhist community, Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh has written well over 85 titles of accessible poems, prose, and prayers, with more than 40 in English.
