Metta request

Postby Ngawang Drolma. » Tue Mar 10, 2009 3:47 am

Hi all :namaste:

I'm going to the hospital right now-I'm pretty nervous. I don't like hospitals and I don't want to be admitted but I think something is rupturing in my body. So much pain.

Please send metta if you could; it can make a difference.

Thank you!

Best,
Drolma

May you be free from pain and be steady in good health

Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

Take care Drolma
you're in my thoughts

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Wow, thanks so much for these kind responses! Evidently one little hemorrhage causes a heck of a lot of pain.
Our human bodies are so fragile. I'm back home, thank goodness. Re-check with doc in one-two days.

Thanks all, very much :anjali:

Medicine Buddha puja time! ;)

When Buddha said samsara meant that we each suffer a stream of blood and a stream of tears, you weren't supposed to take it quite so literally! :)

I hope you recover well. :)
