We are in Vietnam, in the beautiful and historic city of Hue. Today we visited the root temple of Thich Naht Hanh, the world renown Buddhist monk and mindfulness teacher.
This is the temple where Thay, as he is affectionately known by his students, received his monk and where he wishes to end his days.
We understand that Thay is currently in Bangkok for medical care but I felt his influence and presence at this peaceful spot.
We enjoyed our time here, walking mindfully throughout the beautiful grounds.
Portions of the temple closed to visitors and are reserved for the monks only. We understand there are tours and meditation teas available.
For today we felt very happy and blessed to just stroll around. We do hope to find and return for a meditation retreat soon.
