Inspiring words from Thich Nhat Hanh from an L.A. Peace Walk…

on January 4, 2012

“We shall walk in such a way that each step we make becomes a realisation of peace; each step becomes a prayer for peace and harmony.

Children will join us and we shall walk together in silence, with no banners and no pickets. The walk will not be a petition addressed to anyone, nor will it be a demonstration against anyone.

 The walk is to unite our hearts, to nurture our togetherness, and to dissipate fear and separation.

If you are a Buddhist, please come. If you are a Christian please come. If you are Jewish, Muslim, or belong to or identify with any other religions, creed, or peace organisation, please come. If you are white, brown, black, yellow, red or any other colour, please come.

We shall learn together that wrong perceptions of self and others are at the foundation of separation, fear, hate, and violence; and that togetherness and collaboration is possible.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh (L.A., 2007)
