Thich Nhat Hanh dies at age 95

Thich Nhat Hanh, probably the second most well known person in Buddhism in the West, has died at the age of 95. His importance, life and teaching are well summarised in this Washington Post article. May he rest in peace.

“Hanh’s greatest contribution to Western thinking was to inject the idea of mindfulness: to be fully conscious in the current moment.” – Washington Post.
