Thay continues to recover, had a cup of tea with his attendants, is learning sign language and developing some ways of silently communicating.

    The language of signs.

    Thanks for posting his update :)

    At first, I thought "what a sadness this great teacher's voice can't be heard" and as I read further, that went out the window. He's still teaching as much as ever, and it reminds me all the words in the world aren't 'it' :)

    The Buddha once taught without saying a word, by merely holding up a flower....

    Yes, and he's greatly loved, and rightly so.
