Practicing Mindfulness and Meditation in the Tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
Statement on Racial Justice
Statement by SnowFlower Sangha on Racial Injustice
As a sangha practicing in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, SnowFlower Sangha mourns the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other victims of the confluence of racism and violence. We stand with millions of others to say Black Lives Matter. We are sharing this gatha (mindfulness verse) from the ARISE Sangha (Awakening through Race, Intersectionality, and Social Equity), a sangha which follows the guidance of Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh and Martin Luther King, Jr. We encourage our members to practice with it individually and as a sangha.
