In the Vietnamese Zen tradition, mindfully chosen music and words can serve as “soothing droplets” to cool the heart. Recorded on location at Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village community in France, Drops of Emptiness invites listeners into the sanctuary of this practice.
These deeply felt works include Thich Nhat Hanh’s poetry, 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 the Zen monastery. Songs and chants are in English, French and Vietnamese.
