The Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh created the term “interbeing” to describe the interdependence of all things. "When we perceive interbeing, we see that not only is everything interconnected; we see that all is one and one is all. We are ourselves, but at the same time we are all each other."*
The unique inclusions of red and gray stone exposed by splitting a large feather rock boulder reinforces this concept - the closeness of plants, rock, water, and the human and bird figures, reflect the Buddhist concept
that everything that exists is interdependent and interconnected.
