Dharma Talks - Venerable Hue Can

Dharma Talks - Venerable Hue Can
Before her ordination Emily Thai obtained a degree in library studies in Western Australia. She then ran a library education service for migrant students and was also a children’s librarian. Later she became co-ordinator of the Ethnic Child Care Resource Unit Inc., running many workshops relating to early childhood education. After returning to Vietnam in 1997, Venerable practised with the Buddhist master the Most Venerable Thich Than Tu who gave her the name of Hue Can, meaning “Root of Wisdom”. Since then Venerable has practised Thien Vietnam. She is the Abbess of Thien Tu Tue Can (also known as Sunyata Community and Meditation Centre) nunnery which is the only one that practices Vietnamese meditation in Western Australia and welcomes people of all nationalities to meditation, weekend retreats and Dharma talks. She has given Dharma talks in Singapore, Malaysia, America, Korea and India. Recently, Venerable Hue Can co-authored the book “Stories of Thien: Vietnamese Buddhist Meditation” with Nick Mills.
