Zasep Tulku Rinpoche
from email message Sept. 12 from Zasep Rinpoche.]
It was good to hear from you. I hope this email finds you and your
family are happy and eveything is going well. I will send you soon
my journal and story of traveling in Zadoh this summer. We had timeless
experence and it was most succseful trip to Zadoh. I am so happy
that we built Jamseng health care centre and we had an opening ceremony
on the13th of August. There is a full time Tibetan doctor at Jamseng.
Seva eye camp is happening in Zadoh on September14th-17th. I am
so grateful to you and all our wonderful Dharma friends who are
the suporters of the Zadoh Jamseng health care centre and Tashi
Lhapug monastery in the Zadoh area.
I also feel it is very important to be open and very clear about
the finance of the organization so that all the volunters know where
the money went and it is going to the right place. I tried to send
my report to you on the final amount of the money that I was taking
to Zadoh on the day before I left for China, but my computer was
not working properly so I asked Sharon Gretzinger to email you the
details. Upon my return Iwas having jetlag, my mind and body were
not together. Coming back to Canada is always bad for me for some
reason so I could not send my report sooner than now.
I would like to let you know that Dr. Robbie Chase, Michele Davidson,
and I are volunteers. We paid our own airfares to China, bus and
jeep tickets, hotel bills and food etc. I am very thankful grateful
to Dr. Robbie Chase and Michele Daivdson who worked very hard for
many days to set up the clinic and Seva eye camp. I am happy to
have the opportunity to translate for them and our people of Zadoh.
I learned a lot being the translator for Dr. Robbie Chase. At the
same time I also acted as a Venerable Tulku Jamseng giving blessing
pills blessing cords and doing mo for hunderds of people.
I also thank Andy Wells and Lana Weber for coming with us to Zadoh
and helping our work and giving medicine and clothing to poor childern.
I enjoyed so much travelling with these guys and we had a good time.
I have the contract letters for Gaden Relief signed by the parties
like Jamseng Health Care Committee and so on, and I have a detailed
letter from these people on how the money was spent and will be
spent. I also have a letter from the Chinese construction company
that built Jamseng Health Centre with how much money it received
for payment. I will bring all these letters to you to Toronto when
I come there in November; but if you need them before I come to
Toronto I will send them to you whenever you need.
