A memorial ceremony was held at the Tu Hieu Pagoda in Vietnam the next day to pay tribute to the late monk. Born in 1926 in the Vietnamese city of Hue, Nhat Hanh was ordained at the age of 16. He introduced “mindfulness” and Zen Buddhism to the West and advocated for world peace through his anti-war activism. Nhat Hanh lived in exile in southern France for almost 40 years after he was banished for denouncing the Vietnam war. He returned to his home country in late 2018.
