Call Me By My True Names
The Life Poetry and Teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh

Poetry and conversation to help us all envision for a more mindful, peaceful world.



Thousands of Americans from many religious faiths know Thich Nhat Hanh as the Zen master who brought mindfulness meditation into their lives. But he is also a celebrated poet and a peacemaker of extraordinary courage who in 1967 was nominated by Martin Luther King, Jr., for the Nobel Peace Prize. On Call Me by My True Names, you are invited to join Thich Nhat Hanh as he shares his personal life story, his poetry, and his vision for a more mindful, peaceful world community. On Part One, we join Thich Nhat Hanh for a rare interview, as he shares the story of his childhood in Vietnam, how he first started on his spiritual path, and how socially conscious spiritual seekers can help to heal the wounds of war and violence. Part Two presents the poetry of Thich Nhat Hanh, as recorded at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Interwoven with music and insightful commentary, Thich Nhat Hanh offers some of his favorite Zen poetry, including the classic poem “Please Call Me by My True Names.”

Review for Call Me By My True Names Review by Chris Macmillan


Thich Nhat Hanh is a pleasure to listen to. He has a warm sense of humour, and his description of "telephone meditation" is both funny and useful. (Posted on June 2, 2012)
