This is the Question and Answer Session offered by Thay in the Open Mind Open Heart Retreat, which took place in the Assembly Hall of the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado, on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011. Thay answers question first from the children, from young adults, and older practitioners: 1) Is meditating about having fun? 2) Does the Buddha live in the bell? 3) Can the bell be another color besides black? 4) Is meditating healthy? 5) What is the most important thing I can do to build Sangha? 6) If the men in power in this country were to ask you for advice, what would you tell them? 7) Is it ever appropriate to respond to violence with violence? 8) Is it wrong to take someone's life in the case of the death penalty? 9) How do I know when I'm truly ready to love and help others, and how do I know when I am ready for a long-term commitment? 10) How do we practice letting go in a healthy way before tension builds? 11) Would you consider permitting neuroscientists to study your mind, and the minds of brothers and sisters?
