Thich Nhat Hanh: teach me, heal me, feel me, touch me

8 Aug

 

The famous refrain of the Who’s song seems to apply to the course of meditation given by Thich Nhat Hanh at the Plum village (village des pruniers) near Bordeaux, France. The Vietnamese Buddhism way of appraising the world be it matter or living being as a whole and the exercises on our body, our feelings, our mind and the world around us that Thich Nhat Hanh advises us to practice regularly  should be mandatory putted in the curriculum of every schoolchildren in my view.

Enjoy the amazing video, given to us for free by the famous Vietnamese Buddhism Master, it includes good advises for preventing numerous diseases brought by the western stressing life we live in the developed countries. All the more there is a paragraph entirely dedicated to the scientists and the state of mind they should adopt to soundly apprehend the object of their research; nature.

Happiness is a warm gun (The Beatles)

My cousin went to New York (a bad place for French CEO the last twelve months) to participate to the world GNH congress at the UN.
His Buddhist philosophy protected him against any bad Karma because he came back safe. Here below is the manuscript of his lecture showing the possibilities of teaching what happiness proceeds from and a few pictures and links presenting the GNH concept.
