Engaged Buddhist and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh,
please speak out against the brutal dog meat trade.

Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is a highly revered spiritual leader, poet and human rights activist known around the world. He is one of today’s best known Zen Masters and his teachings on mindfulness and practicing peace are followed worldwide. He has published more than 100 books, including over 40 in the English language.

Thich Nhat Hanh was born in Vietnam on October 11, 1926 and became ordained as a novice monk when he was 16 years old. Thich Nhat Hanh has since founded several practice centres around the world, and continues to travel, despite suffering a severe stroke in 2014.

We would like Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to speak out against the practice of eating companion animals and the cruelty involved in the trades, and to share the Buddha’s teachings on compassion to animals to his followers and to the world.
