Peace In Every Step, Freedom In Every Smile – Parallel Verses for the Lunar New Year Plum Village offers these parallel verses to mark Tết, the Lunar New Year. Thich Nhat Hanh has established a tradition, on the eve of the Lunar New Year, of offering the sangha a simple poetic couplet in calligraphy that can inspire and nurture our mindfulness practice throughout the year. Thay’s innovation has been to offer the couplet in English, French and Vietnamese. Sangha based on Vietnamese and translated into Chinese, and wrote the calligraphy. The Plum Village Community is very happy to continue this beautiful tradition.
