Rinpoche gave me the honour today of staying up until 9:22am to help save someone’s life. As a person who is very accident-prone and has her own #health problems, I know what it’s like to be sick and it sucks. I’m grateful I have the privilege to do this, as tired as I am at […]


Rinpoche (and my parents!) for teaching me not to be afraid of hard work by using themselves as examples. Here I am a few weeks ago hoovering Manjushri Hill @ Kechara Forest Retreat at 4am, caught on CCTV by my sister.
