Dear friends,
 
This week we share a dharma talk given by Brother Phap Nha at Deer Park and translated by Sister Quynh Nghiem. He shares about the steps of the Noble Eightfold Path; how they naturally flow in an order and also how they're all interconnected.  Then, he reminds us that each step on the path, even mindfulness, is impermanent.  We need to know how to nourish ourselves and others to come back to our spiritual path and the present moment.

Dear friends,
 
This week, our podcast begins with the sisters of Deer Park Monastery offering a song in Vietnamese.  Then, Sister Mat Nghiem shares the tools we have from the Plum Village practice to take care of our health - physically, mentally, and spiritually.
 
We are so grateful to have the nuns as part of our four-fold sangha at Deer Park.  Thanks to your contributions, construction began in late February for new solar and straw bale buildings for the nuns and our teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh.  To see photo updates and to spread the word about ongoing fundraising, go to www.deerparknunnery.org.

Dear Friends,
 
Today, we share with you a deep and lovely talk given by Thich Phuoc Tinh, the monk referred to at Deer Park Monastery as The Venerable.  Here, the Venerable speaks directly about how time can pass quickly if we rush our minds and bodies, pushed by strong habits to be constantly occupied. He encourages us to stop, sit, and enjoy our own inner peace.  He uses the poignant analogy of words written on a whiteboard to illustrate no birth and no death.  We are the whiteboard and the words that we think define who we are --  are merely temporary.  When we see that the words are not the essence of the whiteboard, no one can cause us to suffer

Dear Friends,
 
This week, we share the question and answer session from the Deer Park New Years retreat.  The questions asked by retreatants center around conflict in oneself and in the family.  In response, the monastics reflect on their own experiences and slowly, the flower petals of wisdom unfurl. The monastics' gentle words reveal that sometimes, the answer is time, patience, space, and acceptance.  And always, the answer comes from your question and from your heart.
