Thich Nhat Hanh is Ill in Bordeaux

I am sorry to report that Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is ill in Bordeaux. Perhaps these words of wisdom will help us remain strong during this trying time.

“This body is not me; I am not caught in this body, I am life without boundaries, I have never been born and I have never died. Over there the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies All manifests from the basis of consciousness. Since beginningless time I have always been free. Birth and death are only a door through which we go in and out. Birth and death are only a game of hide-and-seek. So smile to me and take my hand and wave good-bye. Tomorrow we shall meet again or even before. We shall always be meeting again at the true source, Always meeting again on the myriad paths of life.” 

― Thích Nhất Hạnh, No Death, No Fear

I love the man. I love the way he floats across the floor when he is teaching. I love the way he teaches and what he teaches. I love the way he treats the children.

I am truly grateful for all I have received from him and his teachings.

Please join me today at 1:30 EST (7:30 in Bordeaux) for a guided meditation in my son’s apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The address is 682 President #3.

All are welcome.

May Thay be safe from internal and external harm.
May he have a calm, clear mind and a peaceful loving heart.
May he be strong, healthy and vital.
May he experience love, joy, wonder, and wisdom in the life just as it is.
