I just had a public audience with HH the 17th Karmapa. At the risk of sounding dharma struck, when he handed me my blessing cord our fingers touched! Just like Jetsunma I didn’t know how I would feel and was totally open. But as soon as he walked into the room I felt this surge of happiness and couldn’t stop smiling(still can’t). Within one month I’ve taken refuge as a Buddhist and have met my two biggest dharma inspirations. I cannot believe it. Most of you don’t know that I’m not even supposed to be in Himachal Pradesh right now…I’m supposed to be in Goa. But destiny (karma) called!
