I have many wonderful memories of Rinpoche, especially when I took refuge. I remember feeling great happiness being there in his presence and going through the process of taking refuge. One memory that was incredible was when I was living in Singapore. I had been attending some Dharma classes at a temple and one of the classes I took was called "How to see your Guru as a Buddha." This class made me think of Rinpoche and how I wanted to go back to KTC and learn more from him because this class taught me how to see him as a Buddha. On a whim, I went on the KTC website to see what was going on at the monastery. Much to my surprise, I learned that Rinpoche would be traveling to Singapore. I was so excited and made sure to attend all the days of his teachings. It was so amazing and unexpected to see him. It was as if he knew that I wanted to see him and learn more from him. To this day, this memory stays etched in my mind.
