A collection of poems by Thay Giac Thanh (writing under his pen name Da Hac) the much loved senior disciple of Thich Nhat Hanh and the first abbot of Deer Park monastery in Escondido, California. These fifty poems explore his journey from young boy in Vietnam to Buddhist monk, to immigrant and monastic leader. While the early poems are full of romantic and poetic imagery, the subsequent ones convey a profound wisdom and spaciousness of heart. Light in spirit, loving and wise, sometimes strict, often humorous — his poetry perfectly captures Thay Giac Thanh’s clarity, wisdom, and heart.
