Phone call to Tenzin Phuntsok Rinpoche (May 2008)

Few days ago I got a chance to speak to Phuntsok Rinpoche just before my brother Lhundrup left for Singapore for the late great Mahasiddha Geshe Lama Konchog’s relic exhibition to be hosted by ABC during the coming Wesak for 3 days, from 16 – 19 May in ABC’s new premises.

Phuntsok Rinpoche asked me about my health and if I am eating a lot and whether I have gain much weight in order to compete with him.

I also asked about his schooling (language) which started few months ago in Kopan. Phuntsok Rinpoche replied that he has been very happy and enjoyed his lessons. He has completed his homework and he received good comment from his teacher. He wanted to know what I will be rewarding him for his good performance. I told him I have just sent him a very interesting car and that he can only play on Saturdays. He however requested to play the car on the second half of the day as well. My reply was “yes”, as long as he has done his homework, he can play with the car anytime. I have also promised to bring him a helicopter after I see the end of his one year result. He said he will not disappoint me and asked when I will be going back. My answer was “soon”.

He then said “tashi delek” and “be fat” before he hung up.

I am extremely pleased to hear he’s doing great and he has improved in this studies as well. I am also very grateful with the divine blessings and also very thankful to the great care and proper guidance given by Khen Rinpoche as well as his guardian Thubten Lhundrup, Ani Chodron and Nyudrup Tsering.
