Thay’s Memorials in Vietnam and France

Photos of Thay’s memorial in Vietnam and details of the memorial at Plum Village on January 22nd

Over a thousand monks, nuns, and lay practitioners from various traditions gathered at Tu Hieu Temple, Hue, in central Vietnam on Tuesday, January 10th to commemorate the passing and continuation of our teacher, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. 

There was silent walking meditation around Tu Hieu Temple followed by a formal memorial ceremony. In the meditation hall at Tu Hieu Temple, symbolic offerings of tea and vegetarian dishes were presented before the altar.

In Vietnam a year since Thay’s passing was observed on the lunar anniversary, but in Plum Village Monastery, France, a ceremony will take place on January 22nd.
