As Liam Fitzpatrick wrote in Time magazine, Thich Nhat Hahn was exiled from Vietnam for his anti-war activism in 1966, until he was finally invited back in 2005. But his return to his native country is less a political reconciliation than something more profound. And it contains lessons for all of us about how to die peacefully and let go of the people we love.
When I heard that Thich Nhat Hahn had returned to Vietnam I wanted to know more about this decision. So I called Brother Phap Dung, an experienced disciple and monk who helps run Plum Village in the absence of its founder. (I met with Phap Dung in 2016, just after Donald Trump won the presidential election, to talk about how we can use mindfulness in times of conflict).
He has emphasized the Vietnamese tradition of ancestor worship as a practice of our community. Worship here means remembering. For him, to go back to Vietnam is to emphasize that we are a stream that goes back to the time of the Buddha in India, beyond even Vietnam and China.

We constantly walk, but often it is more like running. Our hurried steps imprint on the earth anxiety and regret. If we can take one step in peace, we can take two, three, four and then five steps for the peace and happiness of humanity and the earth.
In walking meditation, we walk just to enjoy walking. Walking without arriving, this is the technique. There is a word in Sanskrit, apranihita. It means without desire, without aim. The idea is that we don’t put anything in front of us and we run after it. When we practice walking meditation, we do it in this spirit. We enjoy walking, without any particular purpose or destination. Our walking is not a means to an end. We walk for the pleasure of walking.
Our mind tends to dart from one thing to another, like a monkey jumping from one branch to another without stopping to rest. Thoughts have millions of paths and drag us into the world of oblivion. If we can transform our path into a field for meditation, our feet will take each step with full awareness. Our breathing will be in harmony with our steps and our mind will easily relax naturally. Each step we take will reinforce our peace and joy giving rise to a quiet stream of energy flowing through us. Then we will be able to say, ‘with every step, a gentle wind blows’.

El año pasado el Hermano Phap Liu me dio las palabras de los cantos de la mañana y de la tarde en español, y me pidió que intentara componer música para ellos. Esta es la música que escribí para el canto de la mañana. La letra y la partitura de la melodía están abajo.
Cantando conmigo en este video están dos practicantes con los que tuve el placer de conocer y hacer música este invierno en el Monasterio de Deer Park.    Muchas gracias a Albert y Eric por hacer posible este vídeo. Estamos cantando en la Sala Dharma Océano de Paz en Deer Park.

Sus relaciones con el gobierno comunista que gobierna Vietnam también son tensas debido a su ateísmo, aunque él tiene poco interés en la política. Por ello, el gobierno comunista se muestra escéptico con él, desconfía de su trabajo con la población vietnamita de ultramar y ha restringido en varias ocasiones su réquiem de oración[48] No obstante, su popularidad ha afectado a menudo a las políticas del gobierno.
