There are so many urgent crises in the world and we may think, “If only Thay were still alive, he would know what to do.” In this talk, Brother Phap Linh explains that Thay can be very alive in us, if we know how to practice. By applying the essence of Thầy’s teaching on mindfulness of the body we can learn to be peace in our daily lives, and this can right away offer peace to those around us.
Thay loved life. Brother Phap Linh invites us to do the things that Thay loved to do, and not to do those things that could hurt “Thay in us”. Then we will know what to do and what not to do, what to say and what not to say, to respond to the suffering in the world.
This poignant Dharma Talk was given in the Upper Hamlet on 10th March 2022, on the first day of the “Coming & Going in Freedom” weekend retreat to honor 49 days since Thich Nhat Hanh’s passing.
