Seeing myself

Have you really seen yourself before? I mean, not in a mirror while you are brushing.

It is like catching a real glimpse of your true self, in a wake moment when you truly let go of your grips on life's little comforts.

The next time you are relaxed and doing particularly nothing, try, at least, to see if your true self is waving at you.

Guru Blessings

Guru Blessings

One of my dharma friends, who lives in Northern Malaysia, told me that she first saw a picture of His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, tears flew down her cheeks.

It must be the karmic connection she had with the Guru.

I somehow have a good feeling whenever I see his photo in a book or on a website.

His benign smiles always assure me and calm me in a way I can't possibly describe. I went Shenzen Monastery to pay respect to his relic. He feels like still being there... with me.

Blessing animals

Animal blessings

My root Guru, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, was blessing a little pig near a village he passed by.

Because of his immerse compassion for all sentient beings, Rinpoche has been saving and blessing a lot of animals he encountered along his path.

Out of those animals he blessed include pigs, goats, cows, horses, elephants, cats, dogs, ants, fishes, spiders, frogs, birds, mosquitoes and even flies.

He does not see them as animals, but beings suffering in lower realms, who need our blessings and merits to help them get out of it.
How lucky the little piggy was!!!
