Lions Roar : November 2017
His teachings have benefited millions of peo- ple around the world, and over the decades, hundreds of thousands have attended his teachings in person. I was fortunate to attend one of his five-day retreats and his dharma teachings were among the most powerful and comprehensive I have heard. Now that he is no longer teaching personally, will his teach- ings continue to reach people? At the beginning after Thay’s stroke, we thought it would be difficult to continue. Every year, we have a gathering at Plum Village in France for four days to practice and hear dharma talks. When Thay was giving the talks, about twelve to thirteen hundred people would come for them. Now, the same number of people come to hear the talks at Plum Village, maybe even more. So the benefit of Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings will continue in Europe, in the United States, in Asia, and else- where. I don’t think there will be any problem with the continuation of Thay’s teachings. Many people come because they have read his books. They try their best to transform and so they come for a day or a week of mindful- ness. There’s no doubt that Thay’s impact is growing. Thich Nhat Hanh never named a successor, even you as his most senior disciple. What is the future of his lineage and community? Even before the stroke, I think Thay pre- pared everything in advance. He didn’t want to have one heir to replace him. He said the sangha’s collective insight is very important. So his continuation is the sangha of dharma teachers, the sangha of monks and nuns, and the sangha of lay practitioners. That is the key for us. Sometimes, as a big sister, I might think I have the power and the right view. But it’s not true. We need the collec- tive insight of many dharma teachers. That is one of the dharma seals of Thich Nhat Hanh. He gave his heritage to the whole sangha of monastics and lay practitioners. ♦ “unexpectedly centering.” @simply_sitting /simplysittinggear simplysitting.com f ind true center the ultra lightweight meditation seat that breaks down and reassembles in one swift, magnetic motion for easy portability patented pedestal design promotes perfect posture, balance, and breathing the evolution of the meditation bench handcrafted and curved for comfort “groundbreaking.” “a total game changer.” LION’S ROAR | NOVEMBER 2017 16
