Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh's letter to Pres. Bush

Please take a listen to the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh as he talks about a dream of his and the subsequent letter he sent to President Bush about the wars in the Middle East. He calls it a "love letter". He writes: "Mr. President, I think that if you could allow yourself to cry as I did this morning, you will fee much better." And, "with some awakening, we can see things in a different way, and this will allow us to respond differently to the situation."

On the Buddhist Peace Fellowship website, you can also listen to Ven. Nhat Hanh talk about the writing of this letter and his belief that even Mr. Bush has the seat of Buddha nature in him, God in him. Amen.
