Dear friends -
Our Venerable Teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has returned to Vietnam and his root Temple in Tu Hieu. He has said that he will continue there until his final transformation. There is a long letter from Plum Village but so far only in Vietnamese. It is on the public page of Nhu Trang’s Facebook page. We will forward the translated letter once we have received it.
Please enjoy this beautiful video of Thay arriving at Tu Hieu as he experience the love of his disciples. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0J3Op_391g&feature=share
And join us this evening for the Ceremony to Recite the Five Mindfulness Trainings.
A news report from Vietnam states: Thich Nhat Hanh, one of Buddhism’s most influential leaders, said in a letter to his disciples he would live in the Tu Hieu Pagoda in Hue, central Vietnam, where he studied and practiced Zen Buddhism from 1942.
“The Buddhism knowledge and wisdom I learned from Tu Hieu is now spreading all over the world, and I believe it’s time for me to get back to my roots,” he said.
“Students of Tu Hieu are now living and practicing Buddhism in many different places around the world and as a way to remind them of their roots, I want to die here in Tu Hieu.”……… https://e.vnexpress.net/news/news/vietnam-s-influential-buddhist-leader-says-he-is-back-home-for-good-3831941.html?fbclid=IwAR19TqCJoOHfKO_zGg87RXaVI_-CelY5AsNLO0-S2Pm2sTeGCe25wroXf_w
