Oprah Winfrey talks with Thich Nhat Hanh Excerpt - Powerful

Quote
Truly insightful, deep and powerful. Oprah Winfrey via her incredible own network,
talks to Thich Nhat Hanh about becoming a monk, meeting Martin Luther King Jr;
the powers of mindfulness, insight, concentration and compassion,
how to transform warring parties and how to deeply transform relationships.

Sadhu !

Deep listening - it's a good teaching of compassion.
You can ask your question) - http://ask.fm/AlekseyKaverin

Suffering - should be understood
Origin of suffering - should be abandoned
Cessation of suffering - should be realised
The way leadding to cessation of suffering - should be developed

Thank you for posting this, it was very encouraging.  I have passed it on to others. :pray:
The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into the habit;
Habit hardens into the character;
Character gives birth to the destiny
So, watch your thoughts with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of respect for all beings...

Oprah has used to celebrity to promote a number of worthwhile causes and issues.  Having Thich Nhat Hanh on a show?  Good for her!

The celebrity Oprah has spent by far the most time promoting, why that would be Oprah herself!!!!
to me, the signs of a successful practice are happiness and a cessation of suffering, buddhism often gives me this; not all the answers.
