“Buddha field: a field of awakening, the country of the present moment. When we think about Plum Village we feel joyful already. Even if we are not physically here—maybe we’re watching this online—but we feel like we’re getting in touch with the ‘Buddha ksetra’: a kind of field of awakening. It’s not only the words of the talk, or that particular monk or nun who is giving the talk, but it is rather feeling connected to a field of awakening, a place where this is understanding and compassion, where people smile to each another, people have hope and understanding—the kind of place where I think we would all like to live. When we think about Plum Village we think about a place like that, and that place is already there in our heart. The possibility of removing the dagger in our heart is suddenly manifested, because we see that happiness is possible, joy is possible.”
