Thich Nhat Hanh: On Birth and Death


Yesterday we talked briefly about Bardo, which is a Tibetan concept and involves the afterlife.

I tend to lean more toward the Zen methods, and easily the most famous, most well-respected Zen teacher today is Thich Nhat Hanh. We’ve discussed him here before many times, most notably back when I introduced the Five Precepts. He’s a great man, and very entertaining as well. Here’s a LONG video of him discussing the Zen thoughts concerning Birth and Death. It’s roughly an hour and 40 minutes, so maybe you don’t want to watch this one at work.

His accent is a little hard to follow at times, but if you stick with him, you’ll be fine. Enjoy!
