Mountain Lamp Positions Available

Hello dear friends,

Spring is upon us here at Mountain Lamp.  This morning, there were so many new birds singing.  At night the owls are thrumming for mates, and in the early morning, the woodpeckers are finding loud surfaces (like the metal roofs here) to make their presence known through the whole valley.  We just ordered our garden seeds.  On March 7th, we will have a work day for pruning the orchard and a bonfire with s’mores.  We hope you can join us.

Warmly, Eileen

Quotes from Thay and News about Thay.

Plum Village has released an update on Thay’s Health which you can read here.

Each New Year Thay offers us a compact “parallel verse,” to guide our practice in the year to come. For this New Year of the Goat the Plum Village elders have chosen an excerpt of a poem written by Thay, which hangs at the altar of the Still Water Meditation Hall in Upper Hamlet:

Look deeply to understand clearly
Listen deeply to truly love

These phrases have been written in calligraphy and prepared in “diamonds” that can be printed and posted around your home or workplace, as gentle reminders to practice. (You may download the print-friendly pdf here >>>)
