Relaxing My Body


July 20, 2011. 34-minute dharma talk with Thich Nhat Hanh in French, with English translation, from Upper Hamlet, Plum Village, France. The sangha is in the annual Summer Opening Retreat. This is a talk for the children.

Thay teaches the children the practice of relaxing the body, smiling to life, and seeing our parents inside. He uses the example of a seed of corn show how our parents are present in every cell of our body: we cannot separate the father from the son. The Buddha is also in us, and we can breathe with him when we breathe.

The talk was given in French and English translation is available below. There is a video version available too.
