Thich nhat hanh
« on: August 09, 2018, 08:07:19 pm »
I like listening to thich nhat hanh more than any other Buddhist practitioner, and I understand that his approach is Zen. Who else should I be listening to? My own meditation has been mainly vipassana but I am attracted to a strictly Zen approach.   :anjali:

TNH has a strong focus on mindfulness, which relates well to vipassana.  It might be worth comparing practices rather than teachings.

He also speaks about some of his own experiences, and I wonder if there are others who also talk about their own journey

It's another story that I've been thinking about for a long time.

Ven.Thích Nhất Hạnh had a severe stroke in 2014 and is now an invalid in his 90's. Sadly I think its unlikely that he'll be giving any new teachings.

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May they all be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May they never be deprived of true happiness devoid of any suffering.
May they abide in great impartiality, free from attachment to loved ones and aversion to others.
