The heart - Tich Nhat Hanh
One of the four noble truths is the suffering which is inherent to living. The path we walk through has hardships, which may end up in pain. Only by facing and responding to such a pain in a mindfully way may we understand its nature, not only helping our hearts to let go, but achieving a greater understanding of the world and ourselves.
What is nirvana? In a globalised context such as ours, that word has become part of everyday life and vocabulary. But what does it exactly mean? Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh speaks about its nature and power.
What is nirvana?
Buddhism and cosmos. Pain and suffering. Two feelings surely everyone has felt in their life. It appears as a constant element in our lives, and it can even be said that it is carved into our very nature. But such a reality can be overcome. Thich Nhat Hanh speaks about how Buddha and his dharma can help us overpower such a crude reality and realise the truth, not only about ourselves and our connection with the world, but the nature of existence itself.
Buddhism and cosmos
La felicidad se halla en el momento presente, en saber disfrutar de lo que ocurre en cada instante de forma plena y habitando cada acción, sin dejar que el pensamiento tome el control impidiéndonos ser lo que debemos en cada momento.
Detenerse en el Ahora, Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh speaks about a new programme which will bring a new future: conscious teaching. Teachers and education institutions will be able to apply this system which, based upon Buddhist foundations of dharma but applied in a secular way, will enable teachers and students alike to establish a greater connection with both themselves and their environment, favouring a community structure in class which will not only help them to live better with fellow human beings, but ultimately helping them to reaching their deepest core.
