Rinpoche was in Sibu, Serawak, on the island of Borneo this past weekend to give the Green Tara empowerment. It was also his birthday!
Many lamas were there from Thrangu Rinpoche’s numerous centers in Malaysia. Being one of only 3 other foreigners there, the local sangha took such good care of me! Clearly the paramita of generosity has been understood here. Even before my arrival people were looking out for me: booking rooms, arranging transport, and then during the weekend we were all offered –at no charge–delicious vegetarian food.
One of the highlights of my visit was meeting new friends from Ipoh. Mr. Tan introduced me to the Malaysian tradition of noodles for breakfast (a fabulous idea!) and also kindly supplied the photo above.
