Dharma Connect: Prayers for Thich Nhat Hanh

The rumor began swirling around the Internet that beloved and loving teacher Thich Nhat Hanh had died. Then it was said that he was in a coma. Soon his closest student, Sister Chan Khong, clarified that he is alive, in the hospital but "OK."

NO PLEASE don’t pass this wrong INFORMATION around. Thay is still in the hospital. He is OK thanks to the patriarchs. If someone want to send healing energy to Thay please ask them to keep one day per week avoiding eating beef, pork, chicken and fish (vegetarian) per week and send the merit to offer life to Thay.

That’s what we are requesting lay friends to do that now!

 

Thay might add, eat that meal mindfully, savoring every flavor, texture, and sensation.

Later today, Plum Village reported the Thay had a severe brain hemmorhage and is in intensive care.

At present, Thay is still very responsive and shows every indication of being aware of the presence of those around him. He is able to move his feet, hands and eyes. There are signs that a full recovery may be possible.

Our practice of stability and peace in this very moment is the best support we can offer to Thay. Let us all around the world take refuge in our practice, going together as a river to offer Thay our powerful collective energy. We are all cells of the great Sangha Body that Thay has manifested in his lifetime.

“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
