Bat Nha: A Koan

Do not just look for what you want to see,
that would be futile.
Do not look for anything,
but allow the insight to have a chance to come by itself. That insight will help liberate you.

- Nhat Hanh

The above Koan is Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's response to the persecution of his students in Vietnam. Our teacher, Thay, has offered a new meditation practice, the Bat Nha Koan. You are invited to look deeply into this. Below is a link to a special letter that Thay has written in response to what has unfolded in Bat Nha .
