December 6, 2009 dharma talk from Plum Village given by Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay) to world leaders, spiritual leaders, political leaders and to us.

Thay uses the familiar language of our basic practice like sitting meditation, walking meditation, the Five Mindfulness Trainings, and a collective awakening to send a message to world leaders meeting in Copenhagen for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (December 7-18) and those in Melbourne for the Parliament of the World Religions (December 3-9)

We hear the Five Mindfulness Trainings and further discussion on their meaning and practice for peace, love, happiness, and helping to save the planet.

  3. Hi Praween.
    The suggestion is good and if I come across a video of the talk then I will post here again. Unfortunately, at this time there is not one publicly available.

    Peace.

  4. Thank you so much for making this so easily available to so many. It will be the focus of our sangha meetings and a wonderful inspiration for deepening our commitment to practice for the coming year.

    with much love and deep gratitude for you,
