Nests and Ancestors

“People of our age suffer and feel alienated because they have cut off all contact with their cultural roots.… We call for a return to the source in order to rediscover a feeling of confidence in the value of our traditional culture, to foster that value, and enrich it. An individual is not a separate, independent entity, but a continuation of the ancestral line, tradition, and culture.”

Thich Nhat Hanh, 1992(“As the bird has its nest, so a person has ancestors”)
