Thich Nhat Hanh – The father of mindfulness

He taught that you don’t have to be super-fit, good-looking model, or a business tycoon, or have to spend years in monastery or mountain top to practice and understand mindfulness
He was a great author and a poet, who wrote around 100 books on mindfulness and inner peace. His book The Miracle of Mindfulness traversed his influence in clinical psychology, which later laid the foundation of MBCT (mindfulness-based cognitive therapy), a treatment for depression and anxiety.
