The next Buddha

It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community practicing understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth.

–Thich Nhat Hah

Thich Nhat Hanh (1926- ) is a Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist now based in France. He teaches, writes, and gardens in Plum Village, France, a Buddhist monastery for monks and nuns and a mindfulness practice center for lay people.
