This talk on Saṁkalpa is a live recording from our Borderless Online Shala, held only days after the passing of zen master Thich Nhath Hahn. The talk was followed by a meditation on the same theme which you find in the next episode of our Podcast.
Saṁkalpa is a very particular word in the Sanskrit language. The most common, but somewhat simplified English translation is "An Intention Formed by the Heart". But the power of Saṁkalpa is really embedded into the very sound of the word itself. So its potency is directly reliant on our capacity to listen deeply. Kia relates to Saṁkalpa not so much as an intention but as an Inner Resonance that we listen for and reflect upon. She also shares how it speaks to the truth of our fundamental Interbeingness - a word coined by Thich Nhath Hahn.
