"Calligraphic Meditation: The Mindful Art of Thich Nhat Hanh"

  • Things to do

Time Out says

Most of us have a friend who’s fond of posting spiritual tidbits on social media, and more than likely yours has quoted the Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh a few times. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967 by Martin Luther King Jr., whom he urged to denounce the war in Vietnam, and has been praised by the Dalai Lama himself. This exhibition hosted by Blue Cliff Monastery and ABC Home comprises 88 pieces of calligraphy, composed by the lifelong peace activist and renowned speaker at his hermitage in France. The phrases are written in English: “No mud, no lotus,” reads one. “Breathe, you are alive,” reads another. The exhibition is showing at Deepak Chopra’s community space at ABC Carpet & Home—bringing the message to the shopping masses.
