Most Recent Encounter With Our Precious Holy Guru Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche

June 3rd this year was truly an amazing day for all of us in Malaysia in particularly LDC as we had the opportunity to offer the most extensive traditional long life puja with Dakinis and 21 Tara Dance performances, the Buddha’s life story and little Tara Dance performance by the Young People Program. One the most pleasing performance was an act of the nine attitudes of guru devotion by our past and present directors, exco members and brothers and sisters from other centers in Malaysia for our most beloved guru showing him our love, devotion and how harmonious and respectful disciples we all are. Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche was overjoyed and praised our members, students and friends for their endless effort. Rinpoche said that this centre is very alive and all the study programs are well organized and whatever we are doing here was expressed by Rinpoche as one of the best that he has seen among other centers and he encourages all members and students to keep up with the good work.

I pray day and night for Rinpoche’s long life and whenever I get the opportunity to speak to Rinpoche on the phone, the only thing I request is for him to live long and may all his holy wishes be fulfilled without any hindrances and without any delay even for one moment. I also request Rinpoche to visit us in Malaysia as many times as possible on a yearly basis and if possible stay with us for a long period of time.

A few days ago I got a call from Rinpoche. It brought a lot of laughter to Rinpoche when I updated him all the auspicious and happy reports on his students in Malaysia who are all practicing sincerely and wholeheartedly in the teachings of Buddha under the guidance of Rinpoche and they are members who serve the centre day and night tirelessly sometimes up to 3 o’clock in the morning. With so much compassion to benefit numberless beings and servicing with a sincere wholehearted devotion to His Holiness Dalai Lama and Rinpoche, making LDC a more efficient centre with all the teachings and dharma activities so that it can benefit thousands of people. I also mentioned to Rinpoche that I learned a lot from his students in Malaysia on how to devote to guru wholeheartedly and tirelessly. This really inspired me and I am certain this centre can actualize the many task of Rinpoche’s wishes especially in Buddha’s teaching. And I also mentioned to Rinpoche that since we are still in ordinary community there are so many things we need to improve until we become Buddha and we will all come together to work very hard to benefit ourselves and the numberless beings and to please our holy gurus mind which is the only source to accumulate merits and extensive purification. With this full understanding we will serve day and night, wholehearted, tirelessly with full conviction and faith and we will never let Rinpoche down. We will surely have small obstacles being in the ordinary samsaric world but we can handle ourselves. What we want from Rinpoche is to keep an eye on us, have his presence, teachings, advice, guidance, blessings, prayers and for him to be in good health and happiness. Rinpoche kept replying that he is very pleased with us and he expressed again and again that his prayer is with us all and he specifically reiterated what I said earlier “My eye is always on all of you every moment”. So I think we are the luckiest disciples, not only in LDC but around the world, who have got the karma to connect with Rinpoche and our organization. Thousands of his students in Malaysia are praying day and night for his visit in 2008.
