Your Birthday is a Continuation Day

Happy Continuation Day to Donna Dahl from The Emily Dahl Foundation!  

Are you sure you were born on your birthday? Are you sure you are not yet dying? 

The well-known Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh explains his insights into being born and dying.

“On our so-called birthday, instead of singing Happy Birthday, we can sing Happy Continuation Day. It’s closer to the truth. Happy Continuation Day. The day of conception is also a continuation day. The day of birth is also a day of continuation. And how about the other days? We have already spent many days—twenty years, thirty years, fifty years, eighty years already, and how can we call these days? All of them are continuation days. And we die and we are reborn every day.”  - Thich Nhat Hanh 

We wish Donna a lovely continuation day. 

Donna is a proud supporter of The Emily Dahl Foundation and is Emily's Grandma.
