Thich Nhat Hanh: A Legacy Worthy Zen Master
Think of the ocean and scoop up a glass of water. That one glass of ocean is you: one person. Pour the water back into the ocean and you become one with the sea. We are all one.
“We are all the leaves of one tree.
We are all the waves of one sea.”
–Thich Nhat Hanh

“This body is not me.
I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born,
and I shall never die.
Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations from my wondrous true mind.
Since before time, I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide-and-seek.
So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say good-bye,
say good-bye, to meet again soon.
We meet today.
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet at the source every moment.
We meet each other in all forms of life.”
