Lions Roar : May 2017
Listen Shariputra, all phenomena bear the mark of emptiness; their true nature is the nature of no being, no nonbeing... — THE HEART SUTRA (Thich Nhat Hanh translation) I LIVE IN PLUM VILLAGE, in the Dordogne region of southwest France, an area known for its sunflowers. But people who come to Plum Village in April do not see any sunflowers. They hear people saying that there are many sunflowers around, but they cannot see them anywhere. However, if you ask the farmers in the region, they will tell you that they can see the sunflowers very well, because they have already sown the sunflower seeds. They have ploughed the earth, sown the seeds, and spread manure. They know that there only needs to be one more condition for the sunflowers to manifest. That final condition is warmth. As the weather begins to warm up, the sunflower seeds will sprout, and, if the weather contin- ues to be warm in June or July, the sunflowers will bloom. See the Universe in a Sunflower To be or not to be... that is not the question, says THICH NHAT HANH. Beyond the choice between being and nonbeing is the reality of interbeing. 37 LION’S ROAR | MAY 2017
