The three hamlets, numbering over 500 people met in Lower Hamlet, for the first mahasangha gathering of the retreat. The monastics offered the opening chant ‘Namovalokiteshvara’, the first time in two years to a meditation hall with a full audience. It was a moving moment for one and all. This was followed by the opening Dharma talk by Sr Chan Duc who introduced the four Dharma seals of the Plum Village tradition“I have arrived, I am home”, “Go as a river”, “The two times and three truths inter-are” and “Momentary ripening”.
