What exactly does Thich Nhat Hahn teach in regards to the Dharma? Some say he's a Zen master, some say he's more Theravada, some say he's neither. Does he have his own separate tradition different from all others? I like hie work but don't know where he fits. Is Vietnamese Buddhism both Theravada AND mahayana?
"The original heart/mind shines like pure, clear water with the sweetest taste. But if the heart is pure, is our practice over? No, we must not cling even to this purity. We must go beyond all duality, all concepts, all bad, all good, all pure, all impure. We must go beyond self and nonself, beyond birth and death. When we see with the eye of wisdom, we know that the true Buddha is timeless, unborn, unrelated to any body, any history, any image. Buddha is the ground of all being, the realization of the truth of the unmoving mind.” Ajahn Chah
