Moments of Remembrance
Last update 29th August 2012

"As we contemplate the comforts and blessings of the Buddhadharma, I always pause to remember my gurus who have gave the true meaning to my live and made me the person I am today. They have strived for all their lives, selflessly and tirelessly to protect, uphold and propagate the genuine Dharma. The richness and the true essence of Dharma that we are savoring now is owing to their great kindness, perseverance and compassion.

This page 'Moments of Remembrance' is a reminiscence dedicated to all the great masters that I have close Dharmic links with."
