May 9, 2010. 54-minute dharma talk given by Thich Nhat Hanh in Upper Hamlet, Plum Village. The talk was given Vietnamese (found here) and is translated into English by Sr. Chan Khong. This is the third in a series (Part I, Part II).
Thay provides a commentary on Gathas 8-11. Since the translation into English continues to be a work in progress, I will not transcribe the gathas here at this time. When they become available, it will be posted. In the meantime, enjoy the talk and translation as it is provided.
As a reminder, this text is from Chinese Dhammapada and originally in the sanskrit (Taisho #213). The sutra has 32 chapters, has 752 stanzas, and was translated to Chinese in the 3rd century.
In our dharma sharing, we are encouraged to look deeply into pride (superiority, inferiority, and equality) and especially our habit energies.
