What is God?
« on: April 08, 2009, 07:34:51 PM »
Thich Nhat Hahn explains the idea of 'God'. I don't think I've ever heard a more simple and meaningful  explanation.

Sorry ab that. I only saw the folder you created after I posted the video. :-\ Thank you for doing that, though.
By the way, I checked out his retreats. Sooo expensive..I guess wisdom costs. I'm also assuming he spends the extra money for some good cause. He doesn't look like the charlatan type.

Greenhorn,

The community has grown a lot and is now about four villages so they have bills to pay. Hahn flies around the world influincing people (though he prefers his garden). etc ,....

There are surely reductions available - and if you turned up with a sleeping bag at any Dhamma centre and said you had no money but wanted to hear the Dhamma they would either 1) let you in to hear the Dhamma or 2) they aren't teaching it, so no loss not to hear it.

Matthew

ps No problem ..I'll put it in Uncle Hahn's library :)
