I was first given this beautiful chant and prayer by Thich Nhat Hanh while involved with a local group in the UK, part of the Community of Interbeing. Before that I was connected to an international Tibetan Buddhist organisation founded by Lama Yeshe, who died many years ago now and I never had the privilege of meeting him.
TNH’s prayer came back to me this morning via The Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive and my Facebook page. I listened with great joy along with my precious memories of the people and places I shared during my times with those two communities.
The chant and the beautiful film footage has also moved me close to tears – of sadness for the planet and of longing for The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible.
I want to share The Great Bell Chant with you now:
