In early spring 1991, while on her lecture tour in the United States, Supreme Master Ching Hai responded to the Most Venerable Thích Mãn Giác's gracious invitation and visited Việt Nam Temple in Los Angeles. The two spiritual teachers, who were also poets, spoke about the beauty of Dharma practice and poetry. In this harmonious meeting, the fragrance of Zen permeated the air.
Although the highly respected Zen Master Mãn Giác has now returned to the True Source, his gentle spirit still remains. To share the legacy of his beautiful poetry, we invite you to listen to the recital of these verses in Free White Clouds through the melodious voice of Supreme Master Ching Hai. In addition, two of her own poems, "Golden Lotus" and "Sayonara," were dedicated to the Most Venerable Thích Mãn Giác.
In accompaniment with poetry recital is the performance by a renowned Aulacese traditional orchestra, such that each poem is infused with a uniquely Aulacese resonance. Through this treasured collection, may the audience enjoy their journey on the sacred path toward Truth, Virtue and Beauty.
