Miracles of Tsem Rinpoche: I shouldn’t be alive…

Joy is a long-time student of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. She is a lady with talent in arts, and has painted many fabulous Buddha statues for Rinpoche in Tsem Ladrang.

Sometime last year, Rinpoche warned Joy that she would have a serious car accident, and wanted her to stay around so that she would be protected.

True enough, Joy had a car accident a few days ago; her car lost control and spun twice before slamming hard in a ditch, landing on the driver’s side where the window was smashed… but somehow Joy escaped with just a few bruises on her arm!!! Read on…

A tragic accident that could have taken my life…

This was just 4 days ago as I was driving up to KFR… my car lost control on the highway, turned 360 degrees twice and I slammed into a huge ditch. So what was going through my mind as I spun around twice… I knew I was going to be hit and everything was going way too fast, so I just closed my eyes and thought of Tsem Rinpoche, my Guru (and Protector as one).

I opened my eyes and realised that my window was completely smashed… and my head was cushioned by my laptop bag!! This is no ordinary laptop bag as Rinpoche just 2 nights ago gifted me with a new laptop (no the laptop was not in the bag). So how on earth did this bag so coincidentally fly, so accurately from the back of my car seat to the front to protect my head from being smashed? I basically climbed out with a few minor scratches on my right arm. That was it!

What would have happened if I had no Dharma… No Rinpoche? No new laptop with bags? How did Rinpoche know??? How did Rinpoche prepare me? I do not know, but I do know for sure… this is the 3rd time my Lama has saved my life from a tragic car accident. They say just from one’s faith in the Guru, one will be protected and gain tremendous blessings and attainments as He is kinder even more than the Buddhas of the past. He is the living Buddha for you… and now I can swear this is TRUE based not just on my “faith” but for the many times I’ve cheated death recently.

With folded hands and humbly grateful to Rinpoche… for if not, I will not live to tell this tale today. May I never be separated from my Lama in this life and in all future lives and to always continuously serve my Lama and the Dharma whole heartedly for everything else is but impermanent like a dream, a mirage, samsara swallows you whole…

Joy
