I wanted to share this - Thich Nhat Hanh interviewed by Jo Confino of the Guardian last December.    It is just under 30 minutes long.

Thich Nhat Hanh is a Zen Master and he uses some Buddhist terms. 'Right View' means insight based on evidence and it goes beyond all concepts and beliefs (including Buddhist ones!)  'Boddhisattva' is a traditional Buddhist term meaning someone who puts the relief of suffering of others before their own enlightenment. 'Interbeing' is a term coined by him to indicate that nothing (and no-one) can exist in isolation.
