Dear Atmavichar,
        :) Very nice. I  really like the way Thich Nhat Hanh lives the teaching.

In one conversation Swami Tattvavidananda Saraswati ji said that the biggest mistake we have done is to alienate Gautama Buddha from our tradition and our heritage.

He reads Thich Nhat Hanh's "Old Path White Clouds" often and uses it as a meditation and he once told me "This teaching is almost the same as Sankara. There is not much differnce"

Love!
Silence

Rest in Awareness: Ashtavakra Gita
यदि देहं पृथक् कृत्य चिति विश्राम्य तिष्ठसि।
अधुनैव सुखी शान्तो बन्धमुक्तो भविष्यसि॥१-४॥
if you detach yourself from body and remain relaxed in awareness immediately you shall experience happiness, peace and freedom from bondage

To be aware of body is to detach from body !
to relax into awareness is direct experience of liberation.
