Wisdom for the real world

Nobel-prize nominated Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh said: “Wisdom is a living stream, not an icon preserved in a museum. Only when we find the spring of wisdom in our own life can it flow to future generations.”

If you need some inspiration, Mark Nepo has a different spring of wisdom for every day of the year in The Book of Awakening, and Mary Paterson embarks on a pilgrimage to Plum Village, the retreat of Thich Nhat Hanh, to find some wisdom after crisis in The Monks and Me.
