So, I have managed to wangle my way into an event this weekend in Darwin where I get to ask His Holiness a question! I get to stand up and he will look towards me. He will listen to my question and then answer it. I will get to speak to him!!!
I have not been this excited about something since….. I gave birth i think.
I feel like I have received a huge blessing that I never, until one week ago, thought possible. I never thought that my Buddhist path would take me anywhere near His Holiness, considering most of my life choices have taken away from the things I love and the things that make most sense.
This humble, simple monk has so much to give the world and i have the opportunity to share a little with the students I teach. How wonderful.
I have two tickets for the Sunday program of which one unfortunately remains untaken as my husband is doing African drumming workshops this weekend, and we have our market stall on the Saturday. I wrote to a monk I met in Adelaide some weeks ago regarding the fact that I’d not found someone to take the ticket and whether this was because it was my karma to go alone or whether I hadn’t gone far enough to create an opportunity for someone. This was his response.
Goodness, yes, Venerable, I will. Thank you.
If this weekend you happen to have a moment free from much thought think about His Holiness and look up. You might just see my good wishes floating above your head which I have received from being in his presence. Catch them and hold them tightly. They are for you, from me. 🙂
