Thich Nhat Hanh (1921 - 2022) was a Vietnamese Zen Master, teacher, author, poet and peace activist. He was an influential figure in the development of mindfulness and Engaged Buddhism. He wrote many books on mindfulness and meditation, including "The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching" and "Peace is Every Step." He was also the founder of the Plum Village Community, a mindfulness practice center in France. Thich Nhat Hanh is known for his teachings on mindfulness, compassion, and peace and was a strong advocate for nonviolence and social change. He was exiled from South Vietnam in 1966 after expressing opposition to the war and refusing to take sides. After a 39-year exile, Nhất Hạnh was permitted to visit Vietnam in 2005. In 2018, he returned to Vietnam to his "root temple", Từ Hiếu Temple, near Huế  where he lived until his death in 2022, at the age of 95.
