TNHAUDIO.ORG: Talks given by Thich Nhat Hanh and senior lay and monastic dharma teachers.
This webpage presents over 400 dharma talks, mainly given by Thich Nhat Hanh. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist, revered around the world for his powerful teachings and bestselling writings on mindfulness and peace. He is the man Martin Luther King called “an apostle of peace and nonviolence.” His key teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live happily in the present moment — the only way to truly develop peace in oneself and in the world.
The page gives links to video or audio versions of the talks, together with a summary and content keywords.
How to Make Good Use of This Website
Thich Nhat Hanh’s talks are known for being easy to understand and inspiring. For an easy introduction, the “Public Talks” are appropriate for a broad audience. The “Day of Mindfulness” talks and “Retreat” talks were given for an engaged and interested audience. In case of the Five Day Retreats, the talks may build upon each other (here is a list of retreats covered on the page). The “21 Day Retreat” talks typically address more elaborate topics in greater depth.
For many people the “Questions and Answers” sessions are particularly inspiring.
If English is not your first language, you may use the language categories on the right sidebar.
Finally, you may like to use the free text search or the content keyword, to search for a particular topic.
Thich Nhat Hanh has always emphasized the importance of a Sangha, a group of people practicing together. So it may be valuable for your community, and satisfying for you, to organize a gathering to listen/view the talks. Or you may share talks you like on Facebook or Twitter.
