    thanks a lot,

  5. Thay,
    In the midst of a blizzard here the falling snow reminds me to be still. I am so glad to hear you are able to smile again. Your gentle smile and words have been an example for me many times. Peace to you during your recovery.

    All the best dear Friend.

    Hi Teacher!
    I am so glad to hear you are recovering!
    Even in this difficult time in your personal life, you are an example of patience and acceptance. For me the smiling is a sign!
    Thank you for being you, and for sharing your wisdom with us, in your books and through positive messages.
    Much Peace and Love!

  12. Victoria Schafer says:

    Sending all the love I can muster along with much tonglen practice. It is not an exaggeration to say Thich Nhat Hanh’s writings saved my life and continue to beautify it.

  13. Nathalie Anquetil says:

    I don’t think you need to change anything apart from when you do working meditation outside. You clothes may be inconvenient even a hazards for that. In other traditions i.e benedictine or soto zen for example, I have seen the monastics changing into plain clothes for outdoor work but you can keep the color brown if needed, but that’s common sense really to be practical when working. Some gets scared about a ‘westernization’ being too attached to exotism which is common in Western buddhism is also to bear in mind. At the end of the day, is it about being attached to appearance or is it about practicality?
