A new future
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.
Ante la presencia de un sentimiento doloroso en nuestro interior tendemos a buscar la forma de taparlo y dejarlo de lado, pero debemos conectar con su energía para llegar a la compasión y al alivio. Las emociones vienen y van, y no son las que determinan lo que somos, somos nosotros los que determinamos lo que son.
La Energía de la Compasión, Thich Nhat Hanh
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
Oprah Winfrey interviews the Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh, in a meeting, which will bring forward interesting queries: how to apply Buddhism to everyday modern situations, how to improve our way of relating with others and even the biography of Thich Nhat Hanh himself. Indeed, such a story not only will prove to move even the hardest of souls, but will open our view to strength and a way of living worth following.
East and West
Fighting suffering. Thich Nhat Hanh discusses how to fight suffering in the world, by firstly fighting it in ourselves. Only by having a peaceful core can we expand peacefulness, just as only by being able to help ourselves can we help others.
