From friends from Plum Village:
“Dear beloved friends – Please receive this with a calm and open awareness. …Our teacher Thay (Thich Nhat Hanh) has stopped eating. Please send your spiritual merit and loving kindness to venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, whose body will turn 94 on October 11th.”
Some students are flying to Vietnam to say their final thank-you’s to him. Thank you, Thay, from all those who you have touched from every spiritual background and belief. You have shown us that we have more similarities than differences. And that love will light the way. ❤️
The monks and nuns of Plum Village report:
We are happy to confirm that Thay’s health currently remains stable, thanks to the love and care of his medical team and monastic attendants. There is no immediate cause for concern. The elder brothers who are traveling from Thay’s international centers to see Thay have arrived safely in Vietnam and are now in quarantine, and are looking forward to seeing Thay soon.
