Update on Thich Nhat Hahn

Many were saddened to hear of the health challenges facing Thich Nhat Hanh, after having suffered a brain hemorrhage last November. After months of treatment and rehabilitation, there is good news to share. The following is from a letter sent by the monks and nuns of Plum Village, Thay’s home in France.

“We are happy to report that Thay's health has continued to improve at the specialist stroke rehabilitation clinic in Bordeaux, where he has been steadily recovering his strength.

Thay expressed his clear wish to return home, and arrived on Friday April 3, in time to enjoy the beautiful magnolia blossoms and the first spring leaves as they unfurl. We are all very glad that Thay can come back to his spiritual home, where his devoted team of monastic attendants are continuing to support him and care for him 24 hours a day, under the guidance of visiting doctors and nurses.”

Locally, a tribute to Thich Nhat Hanh will be offered at the closing night of this year’s BuddhaFest on June 14 in Arlington. They will explore the great impact Thay has had on the world, and look at some of the most important lessons that he has shared with us all.
