Oh I don't know what my parents did to deserve me!!
They rejoice - I commiserate!
It was my godly and church-going R.Catholic mother who introduced me to Buddhism, by giving me Sogyal Rinpoche's now world-famous book, The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying.
Had it not been for her, I might still be wandering around unconsciously confused in Samsara... as opposed to wandering around consciously
confused in Samsara, as I am now!
On the day of their 50th Wedding anniversary, in 2003, they participated in a Catholic Traditional Nuptual Mass to renew their vows.
I liaised with their Parish priest and put forward a piece of text -buddhist in theme - to be read out during the mass.
He was delighted to do this, and openly welcomed such a fusion of ideas.
I am so grateful that my kamma and rebirth brought me to them.
