Message from Alexis:
Thank your for the Medicine Buddha statue. I have received the Buddha with deepest gratitute from JJ today at MBF.
I immediately visited my father-in-law with the Medicine Buddha. He was so happy, he caressed the Buddha many times, he touched the Buddha and blessed himeself with Buddha, he also hugged Buddha tightly and even kissed Buddha tenderly. I was so overwhelmed by the scene that I teared. There is no doubt that he was very comforted and will continue to be comforted by the presence of Medicine Buddha. I would like to share with you these photos as attached.
Kindly convey my sincerest gratitute to H.E. Tsem Rinpoche for blessing the statue, and giving us such a precious and rare opportunity to invite Medicine Buddha home. I would also like to thank H. E. Tsem Rinpoche and the team for working tirelessly entirely for our benefit.
With Metta kindness.
Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:
