Thích Nhat Hanh

Song and Spirit honors saints, sages and peacemakers of all faiths. Here is another one:
Thích Nhat Hanh (1926 – ) is a Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist. His approach has been to combine a variety of traditional Zen teachings with methods from Theravada Buddhism, insights from Mahayana Buddhism, and ideas from Western psychology — to offer a modern light on meditation practice.

Nhat Hanh created the Order of Inter-Being in 1966. He heads this monastic and lay group, teaching Mindfulness Training.

"The source of love is deep in us and we can help others realize a lot of happiness. One word, one action, one thought can reduce another person’s suffering and bring that person joy. Waking up this morning, smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before us. Vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion."

Song & Spirit Needs YOU! 
What's so important about having an interfaith institute for peace? We allow everyday people the opportunity to see with eyes of enchantment, to see that we are all on this planet and within this mystery together - so that we can all become people who make a difference in the world!
