Monks, disciples lay Thich Nhat Hanh in his casket


The shrouding ceremony for late Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh began Sunday, part of a seven-day funeral as a silent meditation course.

The shrouding ceremony lasted for around 30 minutes on Sunday morning. After the ceremony ends, monks and disciples would pay their respect to Hanh at the Full Moon Meditation Hall of Tu Hieu Pagoda in Hue.

All participants wore masks to prevent Covid-19.

Before his passing, Hanh told his disciples not to build monuments for him when he died.

“If one day I die, don’t build me any tomb or tower. It’ll cost money, it’ll cost people’s land, and our people are still very poor. Cremate me. Bring my ashes to Plum Village monasteries around the world and scatter them on the roads of your walking meditation. So that every day I am still with you on our walking meditation,” he said.

Abiding by his will, Tu Hieu Pagoda said Hanh’s funeral would last seven days as a silent meditation course. During this time, the pagoda asks that visitors who wish to pay respect do so in silence and in mind.

After his cremation, expected to take place on January 29, Hanh’s Śarīra would rest at the Tu Hieu Pagoda and other Plum Villages of the world.

Thich Nhat Hanh, one of the world’s most influential Buddhist figures, passed away at Tu Hieu Temple in his birthplace Hue on Saturday, aged 95.
