Meet Thich Nhat Hanh, the man behind Escondido's famed Deer Park Monastery  - The San Diego Union-Tribune

Born – 11 October 1926

Died – 22 January 2022

“Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

I have always been inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh. His presence, compassion, wisdom, and deep understanding of life and self, will live on in my heart.

May he rest in peace and love.

‘The concentration on ‘impermanence’ helps free us from our tendency to live as though we and our loved ones will be here forever. The concentration on ‘non-craving’ is an opportunity to take time to sit down and figure out what true happiness really is. We discover that we already have more than enough conditions to be happy, right here in the present moment. And the concentration on ‘letting go’ helps us disentangle ourselves from suffering and transform and release painful feelings.’

  1. Karen, thank you for posting this. I didn’t know he had left us. I had been thinking of him quite a lot these last few days. May his transition be a blessed one as he has been such a blessing for all. 🙏🏻💜

  2. Thank for sharing Karen. The wisdom and love for all things lives on beyond his time in earth.
    A light goes out, but continues in his teachings. So precious. 💛🙏🏼💕

  3. His spirit has always been larger than his physical being. I feel that now freed from his physical body, he has expanded to encompass the whole world, enveloping us all in peace. And so it is. ❤

  4. It was a sad moment when I heard he had passed, but one brilliant part of his passing was reflecting on his words more deeply and also seeing others do so as well. Wonderful tribute ~
