I Ethics, Mindfulness and the Four Noble Truths | Thich Nhat Hanh

I Ethics, Mindfulness and the Four Noble Truths | Thich Nhat Hanh

What are the roots of our personal sufferings and the pains of the world? We bring our mind home to re-examine our sufferings, to find a path. How to act. What we ought to do. What we ought to be.

Join us in reflecting and applying Thay's 2008-09 teachings on a Buddhist contribution toward a Global Ethic - made available for the first time with English subtitles.
