Thich Nhat Hanh – Living Mindfully

Thich Nhat Hanh has been a Buddhist monk for more than 60 years, as well as a teacher, writer, and vocal opponent of war—a stance that left him exiled from his native Vietnam for four decades. Now the man Martin Luther King Jr. called “an apostle of peace and nonviolence” reflects on the beauty of the present moment, being grateful for every breath, and the freedom and happiness to be found in a simple cup of tea.

This in-depth video also visits the prisons and see how meditation helps the inmates on a spiritual level.

    I think it’s racist to caption him and not her, her accent is a problem for
    some people…

    the white south is so intimidated by the blackman

    It’s great to be ‘meditating every moment with a clear mind’ But what about
    when you need to concentrate on the task at hand, or plan for the future?

    Did Oprah say “That you for the honor of talking to me?”. I know what I
    believe she mean but a little awkward if not a straight out gaffe?

    THICH NHAT HANH —– LIVING MINDFULLY

    “forbidden” to meditate? I thought religious freedom was a basic human
    right. In Canada First Nations were denied their spiritual practices too.
    How can we heal the mind if we shackle the soul?

    I recommend this for the interview with Thich Nhat Hanh from minutes 1-39.
    The feature film that follows looks interesting too, but I haven’t had the
    time to watch it.

    Happy holidays!

    This video is 2 hours long, but if you have the time, it’s worth every
    minute you watch it. The video has two segments, the first is Oprah’s
    interview with Thich Nhat Hanh, where TNH is as simple and sublime as ever.
    This is followed by “The Dhamma Brothers”, an inspiring and very well made
    documentary film about how the practice of Vipassana has transformed a
    group of prisoners from being hardcore criminals into intelligent and
    compassionate human beings.

    in oder to survive we need to work so for people in soceity it is
    impossible to be in the present moment since the companies we work for are
    asking too much from the employees… So it is a very good idea but not
    working…

    A very exhausting interview ofThich Nhat Hanh with world’s most recognized
    interviewer.

    The monk talks about good and evil, being both necessary. I don’t think
    this is the most useful way to think about good and evil.

    A better way to consider good and evil is: God’s power, abuse of gods power
    and being human.

    The first hour of the video / prison training is interesting. I would
    summarize by saying they are teaching the prisoners about humanity. But
    they are not teaching about the how the offending men have not recognized
    or rested from the power of God flowing through them / their subconscious
    which they ended up abusing.

    I went through English schooling and Christian religion without being told
    Conscious Prayer rests your God controlled subconscious from God. Allowing
    you to feel your humanity.

    So I think Monk is someway behind, the training program could also be
    improved upon.
