I had planned on posting this on Holiness’s birthday! (the 20th), but I decided to take this special day just to celebrate in quiet time for myself as I have been so busy lately. I purposefully take a day off from whatever I was busy doing.. On the day of holiness birthday as well as it’s a marks the day when Lord Buddha turned the ‘Wheel of Dharma’, (when Lord Buddha gave his first sermon on the Four noble truths to his five disciples at Deer Park, Sarnath.) I wake to the soft murmuring breeze, the whispering wind.. and drops of rain. cooing from the trees. I was up very early morning that day and started making beautiful offerings. Finish my prayers before sun rise! I slowly had the glimpse of first burst of the brilliant soft light from sunrise. It calms my spirit, slowly I felt the soft light in pearls of rain drops it was not a bright sunny day but I felt the colour of the sky, the beauty of the day and It was a sign of a wonderful day to create a new day of precious glory. I Kept reminding myself how blessed I am to be born under their presence and their guidance.. A ray of wisdom and compassion shines brightly. I bathe myself in the crimson flow of their life story and was so motivated. It was so quiet, so perfectly timed to reflect on their lives and their teachings just to re-influence and re-ignite to become the best version of myself. I truly had an auspicious day! I know that if I live to be 100, I will never forget a single detail of this incredible day. It was a day when I sown a new seed. My heart is filled with infinite peace. Long Live Your Holiness! Gyalwa Drikungpa Chenpo Chenno!
