    Delighted to hear the positive news. Many thanks to the medical team. Thay, sending you loving kindness and mindful, healing energy as you continue your recovery surrounded by the sangha.

  2. Dena says:

    I am singing this song for you… here are the words: Blessed, truly blessed in the season of the spring, when all of creation is radiating. Thanks be to Earth for her bountiful display, reflecting the rainbow as it smiles across her face.

    On my rides to work I often look at a picture of you and it brings me peace. Your words have helped me center in many a storm. I am smiling now thinking of you back at Plum Village enjoying spring.

    I work with children and young people with eating disorders as a recreational therapist. We are going to paint on a wall in my movement room one of your quotes: Dear body, I am here for you. Thank you for this sweet reminder. I know your body right now is unfamiliar, responding in ways you are not used to. Please know that your life speaks volumes and so many of us are touched just knowing your feet touch this Earth and your breath is a part of our atmosphere.
    Sending Love and deepest of gratitude,
    Dena Wilder

    Dear Thay,
    I love you with my heart.
    Thank you for your beauty in this world.
    You are a true living angel who has brought
    so much beauty and love into this world.
    Surely your Dharma light will shine for all
    of time. May you be well, and be healed as you
    have worked so tirelessly to heal all of us.
    May all of your great wishes and that of the Sangha
    be thoroughly granted. May your great compassionate
    will be done. Thank you Dear Thay with all of my heart
    and from the depths of my being, a gratitude which can
    never be repaid. That someone as beautiful as you would
    take time to love us all and shine your love and light in
    our very hearts and souls. You have infused us with hope, and
    because of that we can go on. Please know that you are infinitely
    loved. Because you are here the world has a bright light. There
    are not words enough to tell you how thankful we are or how much
    we need you, or how much we love you. May we show you our gratitude
    and love by practicing truly what you have worked so hard to teach
    us. Please be well.
    I love you Thay.

  5. Joanne Wilson says:

    Dear Thay – How wonderful to be back home surrounded by the familiar that supports us and bring smiles from the heart.
    There are no words of gratitude large enough for a lifetime of giving, teaching and leadership. For the many windows you have opened to the spirit of love I can only say thank you. I wish each of your days to be filled with quiet joy and wellness.
    Sending You a warm hug with caring. Joanne Wilson

    Con có 1 bài thơ ngắn xin tặng Thầy, bài này có hát theo điệu nhạc được đó ạ
    “Thầy con có một cốc trà
    Thân tâm an trú bây giờ nơi đây
    Lòng con gió bụi mưa trần
    Quay về nương tựa nơi Thầy an vui”

    With lots of love, Thao Huynh

  19. mick mcclellan says:

    Thay has been one of the most influential people in my life, when I first read “living Buddha Living Christ” it started a transformation of my Spiritual perception. Reading the words of Jesus and the Buddha Combined with meditation and allowing the bell to (as Thay puts it), “bring me back to my true self”. I became open to the reality that it is possible to focus on only the beautiful similarity’s in all Spiritual traditions and let go of the differences. Today I try to share that spirit of open-mindedness with men and women trying to recover from addiction. As an intern at a treatment center in Minnesota that works with clients who have suffered a serious brain injury and have turned to drugs and alcohol for relief, I have been given the opportunity to facilitate a mindfulness class and practice coming back to the breath. Without Thay’s inspirational and compassionate teachings I would never have been able to free myself-self from constant mental suffering, and try to help others do same. For that I want to say THANK YOU THAY, I have much love for you and the Plum Village Community. I don’t know if I will ever have the resources to visit their in person, but I can always be there in Spirit. Peace 2 U all !! Mick McClellan

Upgrading the Mindfulness Bell

Your support will help us to make sure the Mindfulness Bell is accessible to Sangha members around the world – online and in print – as a medium to sustain our community’s essence of brotherhood and sisterhood, and to nourish each other on the path of practice. Read more ››

What’s the point of walking meditation? Why do I practice sitting meditation? Because I like it. There’s no point doing these practices if you don’t enjoy them. It’s not hard labour. Every breath can bring us peace, joy and freedom. — Thich Nhat Hanh
