  1. @TOMP66666 Hello TOMP I wouldnt describe that as being fooled, The nature of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teaching has in it the planting and nurturing of seeds. Have they not been planted? and nurtured?

  2. Hey tim666661, your comment on Thay TNH is worth disussing. But the way you post it: on each every clip, will defeat your purpose.
    It’s getting like a propaganda itself not Thay TNH is “propaganda tool” like you want to say. Go to a religious forum and do this.

  3. Thich Nhat Hanh be fooled by communist Vietnam!!!

    In 2005 and 2007 Thich Nhat Hanh returned to Vietnam to help the communist regime to improve its bad image for religious oppression. In return, the communists promised to allow him to practice religion in Vietnam and establish Bat Nha monastery. But in September 2009, Vietnamese authorities launched a violent crackdown on his followers at the monastery, fearing his popularity among the youth could pose a threat to the communist leadership.

  4. @ajvillavi , yes that i understand (not REALLY experience yet) that everything is moving. But with concentration meditation you will never reach the insight/experience that everything is coming and go. It is only by mindfulness/Vipassana you can gain this insight . Thats why the Buddha is so speciale, because before him they only practise concentration meditation.

  5. @himalayanspirit Isn’t teaching others about the path, part of the path?

  8. @bifi34 All matter is made up of moving particles (atoms). Non moving objects do not exists according to physics. Earth travels 66,660 MPH in its orbital trajectory, isn’t verything on earth moving with it?

  9. that’s not true. The tibetans calls things like that, “skillfull means”

  10. I agree with you. Any monk who gets fame and becomes a celebrity before enlightenment, virtually strays away from the true path.
    Reading the works of Thich Nhat Hanh and listening to his interviews and discourses, I have concluded that all this guy wants to do is to please the westerners. Thats his sole motive. He changes the dharma to suit their needs.

  11. A real monk never do politics. Politic is for the men on street, for the politicians, not for a bhikkhu. Thich Nhat Hanh is never be enlightened till now, because he knows not what is the right Buddha Dhamma, he don’t know how to get full enlightenment because he believe the right mindfulness is the whole Dhamma (while “right mindfullness” is just only a first step on meditation) May be this monk is a famous one in this mundane world, don’t believe all what an unenlightened monk talk to you!

  12. @phamdoan Right Mindfulness bring you to Nirvana. It is mindfulness that makes the Buddha’s teaching special. Mindfulness is focus on “moving” objects. In moving objects you can see that it have a begin and an end. Only with concentration meditation ( focus on a “not moving” object) you never reach Nirvana.

  14. Right mindfulness is an important teaching of Buddhism. Thank to Thich Nhat Hanh, many peoples know how to find the useful power of minfulness!
    But:
    I wonder that Thich Nhat Hanh teach what (?) after the right mindfulness!
    All we know that Buddha practice more than the right mindfulness!
    As I know:
    Right minfulness can bring us a temporary inner peace not the permanent peace as in the state of enlighentment.

  15. Thich nhat Hanh is just a propaganda tool for the communist regime in Vietnam. A leader of anti-war movement in Vietnam war, he turned a blind eye to Hue massacre of 5,000 civilians by Vietcong in 1968 and Vietnam invasion and occupation of Cambodia in 1978. In 2005 and 2007, he returned to Vietnam to help the communist regime to improve its bad image for human rights violations and religious oppression so that Vietnam could gain permanent normal trade status with the US and enter WTO.

  16. Print peace & serenity & happiness on the ground as you walk! Build for yourself a place in the Kingdom of Heaven here on this earth.

  17. Thanks for posting this video. It’s very “rare” here in Youtube.

  18. Wow, this is an old video! We need more people like Thay in this world.

  19. Actually, they’re smiling because they’re happy, and they’re glad to be listening to him. It’s that simple.
    (Some may be listening with their eyes closed, which could make them look a bit strange.)
