"A turning point came when he attended a meditation retreat for Vietnam veterans led by the renowned Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh. Here he encountered the Buddhist teachings on meditation and mindfulness, which helped him to stop running from his past and instead confront the pain of his war experiences directly and compassionately. Thomas was eventually ordained as a Zen monk and teacher, and he began making pilgrimages to promote peace and nonviolence in war-scarred places around the world including Bosnia, Auschwitz, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and the Middle East." "At Hell's Gate is Thomas's coming-of-age story and a spiritual travelogue from the horrors of combat to discovering a spiritual approach to healing violence and ending war from the inside out."--Jacket
Krieg beenden, Frieden leben : ein Soldat überwindet Hass und Gewalt by Claude Thomas( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vom Vater zu einer Militärausbildung getrieben, landet der junge ahnungslose Thomas in einem Camp, wo ihn Desillusionierung und Einsamkeit erwarten. Viel zu jung meldet er sich zum Einsatz als Soldat in Vietnam, wo er kämpft, mordet und schliesslich überlebt. Doch das Trauma des Krieges bleibt für immer in seinem Gedächtnis eingebrannt. Thomas greift zu Alkohol und Drogen, um Symptome und Schlaflosigkeit zu verdrängen. Eine wirkliche Änderung seiner inneren Wirklichkeit entwickelt sich jedoch erst durch die Begegnung mit dem vietnamesischen Meditationslehrer Thich Nhat Hanh. Von Bernard Glassman zum buddhistischen Mönch ordiniert, gründet er eine Organisation zur Förderung von Gewaltlosigkeit und Frieden. Das Erkennen seiner unterdrückten Gefühle und des eigenen Gewaltpotenzials durch Achtsamkeitspraxis, sowie die Kommunikation mit Soldaten und Kriegsveteranen sind zu seiner Lebensaufgabe geworden. Der erschütternde Bericht besticht durch die ehrliche und mutige Auseinandersetzung des Autors mit seiner Vergangenheit und Gegenwart und ist wegweisend für jeden Menschen
