This week, we continue to share from the dharma talks given by Thich Nhat Hanh at Deer Park Monastery. In this segment, our teacher shares the first eight exercises of mindful breathing taught by the Buddha. These exercises are key to helping us us to learn the art of suffering, enabling us to suffer less and to transform our suffering. Then, Thay shares the first two of the Four Nutriments taught by the Buddha: edible food and sense impression. He encourages us to consume edible foods in a way that preserves our compassion and to consume media, conversations and other sense impressions carefully to protect ourselves and our families.
