“Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment,
I know this is a wonderful moment.”
Rest In Peace Thich Nhat Hanh
October 11, 1926 – January 22, 2022
Thay, Rest in Peace, gentle soul and beloved teacher. 🙏🏽 Thich Nhat Hanh was my first Buddhist teacher. This picture of “Peace is Every Step” is the actual book I bought in the late 70’s when I first began studying Buddhism. I’ve been practicing his meditations for over 40 years.
I’m grateful I was able to meditate listening to his “Mindful Breathing” track on Insight Timer today. His voice is such a sweet vibration in my ears and heart. I’m grateful for his peaceful, gentle impact he’s had in my life. 🙏🏽📿
