LOOKING FOR A GIFT FOR YOUR BELOVED MOMMY?
GIVING THANKS IN GRATITUDE OF YOUR MOTHER’S LOVE!
A LETTER TO MOM…

Dear Mommy,

With this blog entry, I dedicate the merits of this sharing to you and to all my mothers in my infinite lives. Thanks for bringing me into this world where I can learn the ways of THE WISE ONE. Though I did not have the opportunity to really get to know you as you passed on before I reached two. My existence is enough reason for me to be grateful.
Last week, during our Buddhist studies class, we had a discussion of how much mothers go through during pregnancy to bring their babies into this world…
HOW GREAT IS THE LOVE OF ALL MOTHERS!
I THANK YOU MOMMY!
I once was asked this question: “What would you like to say to your mom, if you had a chance to meet her again?”
I have never thought about it seriously before this question was asked… It was even more intense as I was at a drama experiential workshop in front of a group of strangers who shared life experiences relating to family relationships. I did not expect it to go so deep when I volunteered for the activity…perhaps I have never had a real closure of my loss for YOU… a person whom I didn’t know well but is of such immense importance to me.
It has been two – three years since that unforgettable workshop… my answer remains the same… I am thankful that you brought me into this world. I am also grateful to your sisters who treated me like their daughters.
Because of their love for YOU, their beloved sister, I have three mothers growing up! Including my dad’s sister, I would have 4!
I THANK YOU MOMMY!
A big thank you, to your sisters and my Guma for the multi-fold of love that I have received over the years!
Even as an adult, all of them still care so much for me. When I had a fall last year, they arranged with me to attend my TCM sessions and visits to polyclinics and X-ray centres. I am just too lucky! So my dedication also goes to them for their unconditional love!
I THANK YOU, MOMMIES!
I LOVE YOU ALL!
With love and gratitude,
Irene

Here’s recommending Dawn Chen Peiqi’s new age buddhist song paying homage to the Manjusri Bodhisattva:

Manjusri’s Mantra
Om A Ra Pa Tsa Na Dhi

Praise to Manjusri (Gang-Lo-Ma)

Homage to my guru and protector, Manjushri!

You, whose intelligence shines forth as the sun, unclouded by delusions or traces of ignorance,
Who hold to your heart a scriptural text symbolic of seeing all things as they are,
Who teaches in sixty ways, with the loving compassion of a mother for her only son,
To all creatures caught in the prison of samsara,
Confused in the darkness of their ignorance, overwhelmed by their suffering.

You, whose dragon-thunder–like proclamation of Dharma arouses us from the stupor of our delusions
And frees us from the iron chains of our karma,
Who wields the sword of wisdom hewing down suffering wherever its sprouts appear,
Clearing away the darkness of all ignorance;
You, whose princely body is adorned with the one hundred and twelve marks of a Buddha,
Who has completed the stages achieving the highest perfections of a bodhisattva,
Who has been pure from the beginning.
To you, oh Manjushri, I bow.

OM A RA PA TSA NA DHI

With the brilliance of your wisdom, O compassionate one,
Illuminate the darkness enclosing my mind,
Enlighten my intelligence and wisdom
So that I may gain insight into the Buddha’s words and the texts that explain them.
