A Collective Awakening for the Future of Our Planet: Thich Nhat Hanh’s Message to the 2009 Parliament of World Religions

Via on Jan 16, 2010

This via our dear friend Alisa Roadcup at the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions:

Thay Thich Nhat Hanh offers a special Dharma Talk to the 2009 Parliament of World Religions being held in Melbourne Australia.  This very special and powerful talk, transmitted by video to hundereds of people in Australia, opens the doors of practice available through the Five Mindfulness Trainings.  The Five Mindfulness Trainings offer a concrete path of practice that can lead to a collective awakening, that can transforming our hatred, fear and greed, in turn bringing healing to ourselves and our planet, solving the problems of climate change, terrorism, and poverty at their root.

Watch the video here.  (An audio version is also available here.)
