The Jan. 22 death of Thich Nhat Hanh marked the loss of one of the most significant leaders of the Buddhist world. An influential global figure, he was both active in the peace and civil rights movement, marching for peace in Vietnam and standing alongside Dr Martin Luther King. For most Americans and westerners, Thich Nhat Hanh is also remembered for his ability to bring Buddhism and the world of mindfulness to the West. 

Jonathan Bastian talks with Buddhist practitioner Jack Kornfield and journalist Katy Butler, who reflect on “Thay’s” life, legacy, and practices of mindfulness, compassion, and interconnectivity.
