World renowned Buddhist leader Thich Nhat Hanh experienced a severe brain hemorrhage on Wednesday, his spiritual community announced. Plum Village, the monastic community Hanh founded in 1975, posted the announcement to its website Wednesday night stating that their teacher, intimately referred to as "Thay," was receiving 24-hour intensive care and showed potential signs of a full recovery. At present, Thay is still very responsive and shows every indication of being aware of the presence of those around him. He is able to move his feet, hands and eyes. There are signs that a full recovery may be possible. The group also noted that Hanh has been ill for several months and was first hospitalized on November 1, though it did not identify the cause apart from fragility "due to his advanced age." Plum Village also asked Buddhist practitioners around the world to join them in using meditation to send Hanh "healing and loving energy."
