On Thursday April 6th, we will be looking at a few of Thich Nat Hanh's 'Ultimate Poems.'
Thay says that 'when we look for God, or nirvana, or the deepest kind of peace, we are concerned about the ultimate.'
In other words, these ultimate poems try to express the inexpressible - that dimension of life which goes beyond human concepts. Whilst we see Thay, the scholar, in these poems, we still catch a glimpse of Thich Nhat Hanh, the man, the person whom we met in his 'Historical Poems' last year.

On Thursday 26th March, the Theravada Group will play an audio-talk given by Tenzin Peljor who is German by birth.
Tenzin gave the talk at Margaret Richardson's house on 29th January this year. It is both incisive and pragmatic, yet his delivery is both warm-hearted and playful.
The full talk with questions and answers lasted about 90 minutes, so unfortunately, we won't have the time to listen to the whole of the recording, however, I am happy to send it by e-mail to whomsoever would like it.
