Thich Nhat Hanh is a Zen Buddhist mon, writer, and peace activist (Ogilbee,164). He asserts that the point of spiritual teachings is not to believe one specific teaching over another, but rather the overall experience of the transformation. From the description of his teachings, it does seem accurate to sacredness to wherever Thich Nhat Hanh engages in Zen Buddhism rituals. His gathers attract all faiths. He creates a community of pilgrims where all are welcome. Each is taking a journey that strips away responsibilities so that pilgrims can look within themselves and address fundamental issues. People are able to release fears, worries, and anything else that they have tried to avoid. They can let them go and reconnect with the world (Ogilbee,168).
Thich Nhat Hanh relays that mindfulness and happiness can be achieved through simple actions like counting breaths and remembering to smile. He explains how simple tasks such as washing dishes, taking a walk, eating a meal, and driving a car can be joyous activities if one remembers to breath and smile. He states: “I believe that every home should have one room for breathing. Simple practices like conscious breathing and smiling are very important. They can change our civilization” (p. 47).

Like a storm, we know is coming we must prepare before it hits, just as we must be prepared to control the anger we feel seizing within us. Thich Nhat Hahn teaches learning to recognize the anger building inside of us over situations that cause us to become angry is the first step in controlling anger. When we know of our anger is at a boiling point ready to blow, now is the time to implement deliberate breathing techniques that Thich Nhat Hahn says will re-focus our minds on our breathing and away from our anger.

In The Heart of Understanding, Thich Nhat Hanh’s uses simple but powerful words and real world examples to illustrate the profound Buddhist philosophy from the Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra, an important representative of Mahayana Buddhist literature. The Mahayana school of Buddhist teachings emphasizes the doctrine of Sunyata- emptiness. The doctrine of emptiness, one of the most important Mahayana innovations, focuses on the relational aspect of existence. Thich Nhat Hanh coins and introduces a new word- interbeing to explain the state of emptiness. This idea of interbeing not only illustrates emptiness well but also provides understanding of other fundamental Buddhist ideas such as No-Self, impermanence and non-duality.
