  • Dear Thay, Dear Sangha-I remember the first time I heard this beautiful and haunting chant at Thay’s retreat in Estes Park. It immediately warmed my heart and soul…and the tears flowed freely, watching Thay pull all of life’s suffering from his heart and letting it go into the cosmos. One of the most beautiful things I have ever witnessed and been a part of. Thank you sweet Monastics, for putting this on your website so I can listen to it again and again and be at peace. A deep bow of gratitude to Thay and all of you and to the world sangha-

  • Buddhas deepest blessings for doing this! Tears are coming as my heart opens so fully I cannot contain it. I have such great love for the three jewels as they are all represented in Thay. There are no words I can only bow.

    • The monastics chant the phrase “Namo’valokiteshvara.” This is a chant to invoke the name of the Bodhisattva of Great Compassion, Avalokiteshvara. A “bodhisattva” is a great being who has developed human qualities to a very high degree. We each have a bodhisattva of compassion within us, and this chant is an opportunity to get in touch with that seed of compassion in our hearts, to invite it to manifest right in the very moment of chanting.
