We honor, embrace and offer deep gratitude to the Buddha and our spiritual ancestors. For over 2,600 years they handed down the teachings and mindfulness trainings that guide us on the path of healing and transformation. We honor the many generations of Vietnamese who carried Buddhism to us through our beloved Teacher, Venerable Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh. We honor our Teacher and his students who offer practices of understanding and love to many people throughout the world. Through our practice may we be a beautiful continuation of our Teacher.
