On Thursday April 6th, we will be looking at a few of Thich Nat Hanh's 'Ultimate Poems.'
Thay says that 'when we look for God, or nirvana, or the deepest kind of peace, we are concerned about the ultimate.'
In other words, these ultimate poems try to express the inexpressible - that dimension of life which goes beyond human concepts. Whilst we see Thay, the scholar, in these poems, we still catch a glimpse of Thich Nhat Hanh, the man, the person whom we met in his 'Historical Poems' last year.
