Communication--The Key to World Peace?

September 18, 2016

Could it be that war and violence come from something as simple as an inability to communicate? Today's vlog brings you a quote by the Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Thich Nhat Hahn, who was forced to leave Vietnam during the Vietnamese War due to religious persecution, and afterward founded Plum Village in France, a community dedicated to Peace, Love and Healing.

 

"We live in a time when we have a very sophisticated means for communication, but communication has become very difficult between individuals and groups of people. A father cannot talk to a son, mother cannot talk to a daughter, and Israelis cannot talk to Palestinians, and Hindus cannot talk to Muslims. And that is why we have war, we have violence. That is why restoring communication is the basic work for peace, and our political and our spiritual leaders have to focus their energy on this matter." --Thich Nhat Hahn
