This is the eleventh sutra Dharma talk offered by Thay in the Winter Retreat of 2010-11, filmed in the New Hamlet of Plum Village, France on Sunday, January 16th, 2011. In this talk Thay talks about the Four Attainments of Plum Village, is well as the nature of nirvana.
The Four Attainments of Plum Village:
1. đã về, đã tói - "I have arrived, I am home" or "froglessness"
2. an trú - "Dwelling happily"
3. tương túc - "Interbeing"
4. vô sinh, vô diệt - "No-birth, no-death"
Thay has said many times, the Buddha of our century will not be an individual, but a Sangha. That Sangha will be the Buddha. We must look for the body of the Buddha in the Sangha.
