Thay’s Bell Chant..


sometimes I find this chant of Thich Nhat Hanh soothing…other times eerie, mournful, even spooky.  either way there’s tears.

can you hear the english translation?

‘I learn to listen to my suffering..’


The Bell Chant – Plum Village


(these days it also makes me think of fellow blogger TW Dittmer’s book ‘The Valley Walker‘ – if that book had audio this should be it methinks..)

  2. I am truly flattered that you would think of the book during this moving ode to life… and it DID move things in me.

  3. The books of Thich Nhat Hanh are wonderful. In August I was first time in Varkala, Kerala. Near my hotel in a temple the monks meditatet in songs. Three times daily I listend and my heard got open. Now back in the cold Germany I miss it soooooooo much ♥♥♥

  4. I really enjoyed listening to the chanting and the bell. Thank you.

  5. That is really lovely, Annie. You are right … Tim’s book had a definite feel to it, and this works nicely.

  6. Fantastic, Annie 😉
