December 3, 2009 dharma talk translated from Vietnamese by Sr. Chan Khong at New Hamlet, Temple of Loving Kindness, Plum Village.
We took a slight detour by posting the December 6 (see Thich Nhat Hanh Speaks to World Leaders) talk first because it was important to hear that talk during the time of the world events. We now resume the dharma talks for the Winter Retreat on the topic of happiness.
This talk continues where we left off on November 29 (see This Moment is a Happy Moment) with the comparison of two versions of the Discourse on Happiness (or Sutra on Auspicious Sign). It begins with a scholarly discussion of early Buddhist history as it relates to the texts we are reviewing.
