Drops of Emptiness
Zen Contemplations in Chant and Song. In the Vietnamese Zen tradition, mindfully chosen music and words can serve as soothing droplets to cool the heart. Recorded on location at Plum Village in France, Drops of Emptiness invites listeners into the sanctuary of this practice. These deeply felt works include the poetry of legendary Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese folk songs and Buddhist hymns of Sister Chan Khong and chants performed by the nuns and monks of Plum Village. Drops of Emptiness is an opportunity to share in musical contemplations rarely heard outside the seclusion of this cherished Zen monastery. In English, French and Vietnamese.
