Lions Roar : November 2017
Melvin McLeod: Following his stroke three years ago, Thich Nhat Hanh is now resting and recovering at Plum Village in Thailand. How is he doing? He cannot stand up on his feet yet, but he is stronger and stronger every day. He has started to say a few words, although not very clearly. Sometimes we sing songs like, “I have arrived, I am home in the here and now,” and he’ll say “here,” “ now,” and so on. He is making good progress, but it is slow. I had the honor to visit Thay when he was being treated in San Francisco. He was in a wheelchair and didn’t speak, but it was clear he was as sharp, present, and engaged as ever. You were with him in San Francisco then, and you told me how close he had come to death. Thich Nhat Hanh already had serious health problems for many years—with his lungs and his digestive system— before he had the stroke. When he had the stroke, the neurologists said he would not live more than one day. I think it was a miracle that he survived. Yes. You told me that you believe the prayers and good wishes of people around the world—students and non-students, Bud- dhists and people of other faiths—made the difference. When he was still alive after three days, they moved him to the best neurologi- cal hospital in that part of France. Then the press mistakenly reported that Thich Nhat Hanh had died. Andrea Miller from Lion’s Roar called me and asked if it was true. I said, “No, my master is still alive.” She said, “Can we announce that he is still alive?” and I said, “Of course, please.” After that, millions of people sent the energy of healing and love from their Q&A Thich Nhat Hanh: Getting Stronger Every Day Thich Nhat Hanh’s closest collaborator, SISTER CHAN KHONG, brings us up to date on his health and the future of his teachings and community. PAULDAVIS hearts to him. Then the neurologist dis- covered that the fluid in Thay’s brain had reduced quite a lot. He said, “I cannot understand why that happened, but now I can guarantee you he will live.” ➢ Sister Chan Khong met Thich Nhat Hanh when she was a young biology student in Vietnam. She has worked alongside him for decades as his support, student, and fellow activist. LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2017 15
