This very special Dharma Talk by Thay is offered by the wonderful Plum Village Monastery Online. We encourage you to visit http://pvom.org/ for more of these wonderful teachings. Here is an excerpt from the website. "This is the final Dharma talk offered by Thay in the Together We Are One Retreat at Deer Park Monastery on the North American Tour, on September 11th, 2011. Thay shares compassion, love, and great understanding: Understanding of suffering allows compassion to arise, and the energy of compassion can be very healing. You feel much better after having understood your own suffering. And your own suffering reflects somehow the suffering of the world. That is why once you have understood your own suffering, it is much easier and easier to understand his suffering, her suffering. And when you are able to see the suffering in him and in her you're no longer angry. He goes on to share about right view and how it can free us from notions of being and non-being. He finishes the talk discussing what is right action.'
