2013 has been a full year for me. I travelled to Japan, the first time I have even been there, and to Europe. Two of my publications also came out – The Buddhist Physician’s Vow and Like Milk and Water Mixed: Buddhist Reflections on Love. Our centre in Singapore, the Buddha Dhamma Mandala Society, hosted many guests and speakers, including Ken and Visakha Kawasaki of the Buddhist Relief Mission, Venerable Sanghasena, Venerable Indrajala, Thubten Chodron, and Dr. H. S. Tan from the Nalanda Institute in Malaysia. I also gave talks outside our society, but in keeping with my desire to cut down on such activities so as to enjoy the blessings of “having few duties” much fewer than last year.
May you all have a happy, safe and fruitful coming year.
