teaching them mindfulness. But he doesn’t know real suffering, because he hasn’t dated as much as I have.’ “Afterward, as he sat quietly drinking tea, Thich Nhat Hanh turned to him and said, ‘Garry, you really know how to work a room!’ “This wise, humble, warm, compas- sionate, and funny man is deeply missed. In the dining hall of our monastery is one of my teacher’s calligraphies. It reads: “The tears I shed yesterday have become rain.” This is the feeling I carry in my heart this evening as I look around this room and see each of you, and the way that Garry is continuing in you.” I would like to end by sharing a mes- sage from the Plum Village International Community: “Our beloved brother, “Back to Mother Earth’s embrace you return. There is truly no coming, and no going. Brother Phap Hai is the author of Nothing to It: Ten Ways to Be at Home with Yourself (Parallax). “Your heart full of humor and charm continues now in the wild yellow dande- lions and the gentle white clouds rejoic- ing in the coming of the spring. We will always be grateful for the depth of your meditation practice and for all of the help and sacrifices you made to help our community establish Deer Park Monas- tery, which is now a place of refuge for thousands of people. “We remember when you appeared in front of the San Diego city planning council to champion for our teacher, and how the council members were moved and charmed by your love and support for our community, saying that it was a blessing for the city and state to have such a gentle group of peace-loving monks and nuns who want to reside there and make their home. “You even gave them many of Thich Nhat Hanh’s books and encouraged them to read them because they helped change your life. You eloquently introduced Thay at the Library of Congress during our visit to the US Congress. “We see you sitting with Thich Nhat Hanh on the mountaintop drinking tea and enjoying a moment of silence and rest. We still hear the echoes of your laughter among the sagebrush. “Now, the children and coyotes, the sage bush and granite boulders, the clear starlit sky and the radiant sunrise all have a place, a home for refuge, thanks to your effort. “You also continue in these beautiful things: our laughter, our tears, our joy and freedom, our gentle steps and peace- ful breath. “You go nowhere. You are within each one of us and now you are everywhere. “You have arrived. You are home. “In love and gratitude, “Your brothers and sisters of Plum Vil- lage International.” ♦ 2016 RETREATS 14 MARY’S WAY, ROUTE 9D AT GLENCLYFFE GARRISON, NEW YORK 10524 845.424.4800 garrisoninstitute.org For more information, visit garrisoninstitute.org/calendar For our full calendar of more than 100 retreats and programs in the year ahead, check our website.
