Dharma talk in modern life
Dharma talk in modern life. Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh speaks about the ways of Dharma in modern society, in order to surpass the material surface we live in and achieve true knowing of our very own nature.
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
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
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.
The heart - Tich Nhat Hanh
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.
