 Eagles and Thich Nhat Hahn

I just discovered an  site that has an Eagle Cam set up in a botanical garden in Norfolk, Virginia.

Here is an image from the blog.

And here is the link Eagle Cam for the live viewing of the Eagles raising three young, the third was hatched only yesterday.
I'm taken at how these huge powerful birds  so tenderly care for their young. This is truly an amazing and rare experience.

And from a truly amazing man,

Dear friends in Japan,

As we contemplate the great number of people who have died in this tragedy, we may feel very strongly that we ourselves, in some part or manner, also have died.

The pain of one part of humankind is the pain of the whole of humankind. And the human species and the planet Earth are one body. What happens to one part of the body happens to the whole body.

An event such as this reminds us of the impermanent nature of our lives. It helps us remember that what’s most important is to love each other, to be there for each other, and to treasure each moment we have that we are alive. This is the best that we can do for those who have died: we can live in such a way that they continue, beautifully, in us.

Here in France and at our practice centers all over the world, our brothers and sisters will continue to chant for you, sending you the energy of peace, healing and protection. Our prayers are with you.

  1. What a valuable moment to watch the eagle with the newborn eagle-babies. When I see the self-evident love of the bird I nearly must cry. There is no question.

    P.S.: It is like a story: When i posted a comment for Stille Linde, I had a codeword like "quality". Here, for this comment, I have the codeword "bleesses", asif the computer wants to say, that here is a great bless....

  2. Yes Dori, Well said. There is no question.

  3. This makes me sad..
    but hopeful
