Objects/Places

Vietnam

The birthplace of Hanh, Vietnam is a war torn country in Asia that forms the basis of many of Hanh's personal stories throughout the book. Although Hanh was exiled from the country, it is clear through his stories that his love for his homeland will never be extinguished. He often compares Western tradition to those of Vietnamese custom, even though he has not lived in country for nearly thirty-five years.

United States

Another location often used in Hanh's stories, the United States holds both fascination and disappointment for Hanh. On one hand, Hanh clearly admires the work of those within the United States in terms of teaching en Buddhism, but on the other hand, he is also clearly displeased by the lack of respect, love, honor, peace, and harmony within the country. In addition, Hanh often notes his displeasure at traditional Western religion and customs.
