TET (new year) of the homeland!
" What does homeland really mean mother?
Why do my teachers teach me to love the homeland?
Homeland is where you were borne and brought up. The homeland is mentioned that always
remind us a connection of bamboo trees or water well. Spring is also an indication of
Buddha’s protection. What is a beautiful spring! - the spring of warmness and full of love.
The joy of the Sun and the Earth
Children is full of love and happiness
Following mother’ steps with their new clothes
Experiencing the New Year fortunate all the way" - Thich Nhat Hanh
" The Spring of love through Thay’s teaching is to practice returning to a real homeland- the
holy of love where you could find a connection from your own ancestors and parents. The
spring of spiritual love that you have received from your ancestors.
Every mindful step and every breath are considering as a destination that leads you to a real
homeland where you could allow your ancestors and parents joining along spiritually with
you in the future.
Spring is coming
Flowers are blooming everywhere" - Thich Nhat Hanh
