Thich Nhat Hanh 3 - A Candle In My Heart

Rating: 5.0

The Great Master has taught us.
When the candle of the heart is lit,
It shines brightly with an ethereal glow,
I see the reflection of the same light,
In the hearts of all my dear friends,
In all my sisters. brothers of this world.
The candle was ignited with kindness
By ‘Thay - Thich Nhat Hanh‘ -
The Master of shimmering light!

The great Master reminded us:
'We have a lamp inside us.
The oil of our lamp is our breathing,
Our steps, and our peaceful smile.
Our practice is to light the lamp.
You are a candle!
Imagine you are sending light out all around you.
All your words, thoughts and actions
Are going in many directions.
If you say something kind,
Your kind words go in many directions,
And you yourself go with them.'

Let us always keep the light burning,
In our hearts with love and joy,
To share the brightness of Thay's candle,
With kindness and love all around us.

Thich Nhat Hanh - 11 Oct 1926 - 22-01-2022 The great Buddhist Monk from Vietnam made his transition at the age of 95, on 22nd Jan 2022. He has thousands of disciples all over the world. I am also his disciple of ‘Mindful Meditation'. Though I have never met him personally, I have been reading his books for many years now. His meditation techniques are fantastic. Here is a modest attempt to bring before you some of his teachings and quotes. Dear friends, Hope you will enjoy reading this Series on the great Zen Master - Thich Nhat Hanh. Most humbly, Geeta.

A wonderful person who has a beautiful heart and mind spreads his light wherever and whenever he is. The heart is the core of being and if kindness dwells in the heart, it will always depict its light.
