There comes a time when something touches your heart so deeply that it is impossible to see how one would be able to let go of the thing that has presented such an effect upon one’s being.
Tibetan Buddhism has had that effect upon me. I had been interested in Buddhism in my early twenties but never fathomed its beauty.
Now that I am in my forties, with a wife and two kids and seeing the silver gray hair stubble on my chin, the profound insights of Buddha’s teaching has more meaning. I do not feel as immortal as I did then. Plus, when you have children, you look at them and I want to know what will happen to me when this body ceases to function, not just for me but also for them.
I do see that life is suffering, nobody has to prove that to me. But it is in reading Tibetan Buddhist sacred writings, listening to great Tibetan Buddhist Lama’s giving Dharma, that I feel hope, there is a possibility to transform this experience of suffering, not only for myself but for all of us, every living being.
Tibetan Buddhism has touched my heart and you will have to kill me to make me let go of its profound auspicious teachings.
This online portal is here to share my journey in practicing Tibetan Buddhism and I hope that my online journal benefits all who come to visit this space.
