Brother Pháp Linh
Brother Pháp Linh (pronouns he/him), also known as Brother Spirit, is a Zen Buddhist monk, musician, and seeker. He began his monastic training with Thích Nhất Hạnh in Plum Village in February 2008 and has since composed many of the community’s beloved chants. Before ordaining he studied mathematics at Cambridge and worked professionally as a composer. A co-founder of the Wake Up Movement for young people, today Brother Pháp Linh is actively engaged in teaching applied mindfulness to climate activists, business leaders, artists, and scientists. As a leading voice in the new generation of Buddhist monastics in the West, he is passionate about exploring how meditators and scientists can help each other to go further on the path of understanding and discovery. For Brother Pháp Linh, a modern form of monasticism will play a crucial role in bringing about a more compassionate society as well as a collective awakening to the truth of interbeing.
