This is the final dharma talk of the 2000 21-Day Retreat, The Eyes of the Buddha, offered from Lower Hamlet at Plum Village by Thich Nhat Hanh on June 20, 2000. The primary theme of the dharma talk is the Noble Eightfold Path. Both the audio and video are included with this post.
In Part I, we begin with an introduction to deep listening that is protected by compassion, followed by a teaching on the Noble Eightfold Path threaded with teachings on the Five Mindfulness Trainings
- Right View
- Right Thinking
- Right Speech
- Right Action
- Right Diligence
- Right Livelihoods
- Right Mindfulness
- Right Concentration
In Part II, beginning at 1-hour and 8-minutes we turn to the topics of violence, nonviolence, UNESCO’s Manifesto 2000, and dependent co-arising.
Live your life as a bodhisattva.
