Thanks for posting this Astus, I am reading with great interest. Does Ven. Thich Than Tu have any Western monastic disciples?
It seems unfortunate that the Viet Namese tradition is not really known outside their community in any major way with the exception of Thich Nhat Hanh. I often wonder if it is because of the language difficulties of many of the Viet Namese Sangha.
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.
