Play

March 25, 2011. 111-minute dharma talk and presentation given in English, with consecutive translation into Thai, with Thich Nhat Hanh, Br. Phap Luu, and Sr. Dang Nghiem on the first day of the Understanding Our Mind retreat at Mahachulalongkornrajavidhayalaya Buddhist University (MCU) in Bangkok, Thailand.

There is a period of 3:30 minutes of silence on the recording at the beginning. Thich Nhat Nhan then provides a lovely introduction to Avalokiteshva, and how we can listen to a chant to heal ourselves and others. The monastics than chant her name.

Following the chant, Thay introduces the two monastics who then provide an orientation on breathing, walking, eating, and noble silence.

The talk was given in English and Thai at the same time and is available below for listening or download. You may also view the video.
