Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh believes that to solve the problems of each individual as well as of the community, even of humanity, we need to learn the art of listening deeply.

Deep listening requires the listener to be really present in front of the person with whom they are conversing, to listen with a loving and generous heart, so that the speaker can freely vent and express everything. what is stored in their hearts, so that they want to open their hearts to share.

The Zen master advises that we should not rush to express our views, opinions, or give advice in light of what we have just heard, but instead just continue to listen deeply.

The Guardian news (UK) has also repeatedly published in-depth articles on the lessons taught by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to the Western public.


The Guardian is particularly interested in Zen Master’s lectures on a mindful lifestyle, in order to achieve balance, peace, and tranquility in modern life, when we are all living in the midst of chaos and worry. pressure at work and in life.

During his lifetime, many of the world’s “big guys” in the field of technology invited Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to lecture them on how to live mindfully, in balance, on meditation methods in the hope of finding sustainable development for the corporation, so that they can contribute good things to the development of mankind.

At the same time, these large technology corporations expect Zen masters to provide guidance, to help their employees find their own sustainable growth paths, to find joy and balance. between work and private life.

In addition, Zen master also emphasized that technology corporations need to understand the duality of inventions and advances in science, must understand how these inventions affect people’s lives and especially especially human mental health.

The Guardian newspaper rated Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh as a famous and inspirational figure, but all his life, he has always actively lived outside the great attention of the media – the public.

However, Zen Master always in one way or another constantly conveys good and meaningful messages to the public through his books and lectures.

The Guardian also assessed that Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh has made great efforts to lead a simple and quiet life, he avoids noisy interactions, he only accepts interviews with journalists who have had a good time. During the meditation practice with me, these people basically understood somewhat about meditation and the basic contents of an awakened lifestyle through their own practice experience.

Despite leading a quiet lifestyle, away from the hustle and bustle, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh never “turned his back on the world”, in his life, in many different ways, he always tried to convey meaningful lessons and messages to the public in the hope that each person can sow good deeds in his or her life so that over time, those good deeds will bear fruit:

“If we begin to practice mindful living, we will experience joy, peace, transformation within ourselves, we will be able to correct ourselves, to find inspiration in life. Money and fame can’t bring true happiness if we don’t know how to live and care about our body and mind in order to constantly cultivate, train, and change our xinxing.”
