Play

A dharma talk given by Thich Nhat Hanh on November 12, 2009 at New Hamlet, Plum Village. In this short talk Thay explores taking refuge in the Three Jewels and being an island unto oneself.

Being an island unto myself
As an island unto myself

Buddha is my mindfulness
Shining near, shining far

Dharma is my breathing
Guarding body and mind
I am free

Sangha is my five skandhas
Working in harmony

Taking refuge in myself
Coming back to myself

I am free

Dear Thay,
Always making the path of practice so accessible for us, as close as this next in breath and out breath — a deep bow of gratitude always for your teachings to invite us deeper, deeper, deeper into this present moment.
