JULY FEATURE: Thich Nhat Hanh
Listen to a series of interview celebrating and honouring the visit of beloved Zen Buddhist- Thich Nhat Hahn , author, poet, peacemaker, human rights activist, and extraordinary human being.
Thich Nhat Hahn is most well known for teaching the practice of Mindfulness, being fully present and available to life in every moment:
“When body and mind are together, you are fully present. You are fully alive and you can touch the wonders of life that are available in the here and the now. So you practice not only with your mind but with your body. Body and mind should be experienced as one thing, not two. On that ground, you see that everything you are looking for is already there. Whether it is enlightenment, nirvana, liberation, Buddha, dharma, sangha, or happiness, it is right there. In fact, that is the only place, the only moment, where you can find these things.- Thich Nhat Hahn
These five interviews feature an in-depth discussion of the Five Mindfulness Trainings which represent the Buddhist vision for a global spirituality and ethic. The Five Mindfulness Trainings are a concrete expression of the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Noble Truths and the NobleEightfold Path.
