Metta request

Postby Ngawang Drolma. » Tue Mar 10, 2009 3:47 am

Hi all :namaste:

I'm going to the hospital right now-I'm pretty nervous. I don't like hospitals and I don't want to be admitted but I think something is rupturing in my body. So much pain.

Please send metta if you could; it can make a difference.

Thank you!

Best,
Drolma

Wow, thanks so much for these kind responses! Evidently one little hemorrhage causes a heck of a lot of pain.
Our human bodies are so fragile. I'm back home, thank goodness. Re-check with doc in one-two days.

Thanks all, very much :anjali:

Medicine Buddha puja time! ;)

When Buddha said samsara meant that we each suffer a stream of blood and a stream of tears, you weren't supposed to take it quite so literally! :)

I hope you recover well. :)
