Aug 23, 2009 Sending good karma to Thich Nhat Hanh
When I was struggling much more than at present over my own mortality, I came across the following passage by Thich Nhat Hanh:
Contemplation on No-Coming and No-Going By 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 have never died.
Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars, Manifestations from my wondrous 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 goodbye Say goodbye to meet again soon. We meet today We will meet again tomorrow We meet at the source every moment. We meet each other in all forms of life.
Thich Nhat Hanh went beyond the foregoing passage to have presented an indispensible book No Death, No Fear.
Thich Nhat Hanh now is at Massachusetts General Hospital, being treated for two weeks for a lung infection.
I send brother Hanh my best wishes. Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo.
