Pastors in Action: Miracles do happen!

A miracle happened last Christmas! Paan, a young man aged 23 suddenly became unconscious due to a bacterial infection in his brain after returning from a family trip. He was admitted into ICU and blood tests and examinations were conducted by specialists. The doctor who treated Paan told the family that he only has a 20% chance of survival due to the severity of the infection.

Paan’s aunt, Yoon Yoke, who is a regular volunteer of Kechara’s Puja House, quickly called Pastor Yek Yee to seek advice for her nephew’s conditions. Emergency pujas were immediately arranged and a few sessions of Setrap Puja were underway on Christmas eve 2013. Pastor Yek Yee also visited Paan that night and did some prayers for him at the hospital.

To everyone’s astonishment, Paan woke up around midnight on Christmas Day and was coherent and could recognise his family. Even the doctor was surprised. It is indeed a miracle against all odds!

Since December 2013, Paan has fully recovered and now spends his time attending Dharma classes and volunteering in and around Kechara, including the Puja House where prayers are conducted for the benefit of others, for protection, health, success and general blessings. This is his way of repaying the kindness of the Three Jewels and H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, who have saved his life.

Seeing him walking around Kechara is a living testament to the power of pujas and the blessings of the Buddhas. Miracles do happen when one believes and trusts in the Three Jewels.

A message from Paan's aunt to Pastor Yek Yee, informing her that Paan had recovered sufficiently and is now out of ICU, can move around and is even able to joke!
