Thich Nhat Hanh, Oprah, And Prison Meditation

What does Thich Nhat Hanh, Oprah Winfrey and a prison have in common?

They were all part of an episode of  the Oprah Winfrey series called “Super Soul Sunday”.

In this amazing episode we get to see an interview Oprah did with Thich Nhat Hanh (a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist), plus a FULL documentary about meditation in prison titled “The Dhamma Brothers”.

Here are some quotes from “The Dhamma Brothers”:

“There we were in Alabama, in one of the United States’ worst prisons, and we were teaching the teachings of the Buddha.”

“I’ve spent 8 and a half years on death row, and this was harder.”

“I didn’t believe it was gonna work, but it worked.”

You can read the full interview with Thich Nhat Hanh here, and check out “The Dhamma Brothers” documentary over at it’s website.

There is also a video with the episode available on YouTube, see it below. Please share, comment and subscribe to our newsletter!
