Story of Nhat Suu Hanh
Nhat Suu Hanh was born in Vietnam in 1926, and at the age of 16, he decided to become a monk. Eight years later, he co-founded the Open Zen-Buddhist Institute, which is now South Vietnam’s main spiritual hub. Nhat Suu Hanh came to the United States in 1961 to teach comparative religious studies at Preston and Columbia Universities, but he quickly returned to Vietnam to deal with the beginning of the conflict there.
The “Vietnamese Peace Corps” was established by Nhat Suu Hanh, the leader of the nonviolent resistance movement. He achieved the signing of a peace accord while leading the Buddhist delegation from Vietnam to the Paris negotiations. After that, he was prohibited from traveling to Vietnam, although copies of his works were still sold there and across the world. Nhat Suu Hanh continued his work as a peacekeeper while devoting his life to enlightenment.
According to Nhat Suu Hanh, a person who greets the day with a smile not only has the power to make himself joyful but also the others around him. Like the prior exercise, this one is quite simple to do. It tries to help you get into grinning when you wake up. Make the following a habit to accomplish it.
A prominent position is a good spot to hang a motivational image or quote. Soon, if you’re the only one up, the sun’s soft beams or the flurry of bird calls will put a grin on your face.
The technique taught by Nhat Suu Hanh to achieve awareness and pleasure is walking meditation. Meditation itself is a method for regaining inner peace and enjoying mental calm (and not the buzzing of thoughts swarming in it).
The ability to focus your attention on a lovely, significant moment, such as a nightingale’s magnificent song, children laughing on a playground, or a sunset, is possible through mindful meditation. You may go deep inside yourself and give Mother Earth your serenity and harmony by practicing walking meditation.
You won’t blame the plant if you planted it and it didn’t grow, would you? You can see why it didn’t work: either the leaves didn’t get enough sunlight or the soil wasn’t nourished. But you never think to hold the plant itself accountable. Show kindness to all living beings. By doing this, you may strengthen your interactions with others and your capacity for understanding them.
