  1. C.K. -- After re-reading your article on HHDL, I went back to my old journals and found the notes I had taken the first time I saw him. It was July 21, 1981 at the Headquarters of the Theosophical Society in Wheaton, IL. A beautiful day with the event held outside. Maybe 300 people were there. It almost felt like a large family reunion!!! In reading your review, things have not changed. He stressed he was just a human being, and compassion was his message. I remember it as one of the most peaceful gathering I have ever been involved in.

  2. What an amazing experience. Thank you for sharing it!

    I also had the good fortune of seeing Thich Nhat Hanh at Loyola University, in 2003. Not the same. But the article is here.
