I thought you would want to know and hold him your hearts as he passes. He has been a gift to the world. Such a precious being.
Dear Sangha Friends,
We receive sad news, it says that one of our great masters, Thich Nhat Hanh, is passing away in Plum Village, with his disciples around him.They are calm and focused, and so should we be. His continuation is already here in his senior students, and we also are part of that continuation.
There will of course be official announcements as things unfold, and they will be passed on to you. But his passing out of this material manifestation is imminent.
The Sisters ask that you sit, peacefully for Thay, as they are doing, and send him your love. Also, that you might like to chant for him (you could do it along with the monks and nuns) this Avalokiteshvara Chant: The clip is 3 minutes long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNfaXNGJiUc.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNfaXNGJiUc. (it can be searched on Youtube this way also: Avalokiteshvara chant with plum village monastics.) But to us, this day itself should be a very very mindful day in his honour, and because we know that is what would please him more than anything else.
