I'm joining Service Space because ... Losing my sense of "self" through service is what inspires me to dig deeper and serve more. The people in this space, through their incredible acts of service, are a huge source of inspiration for my own service journey!
A good day to me is when ... I can touch someone's life, in some small way, and make them smile from within :)
My hero in life is ...All the people around the world doing small acts of goodness, right where they are right now. Because ultimately, it is these small acts that together will change the world.
My favorite book is ...Journey books like Siddhartha and Tuesdays with Morrie, Books on raising mindful children like Raising Happiness and books about going within like The Power of Now
One thing I'm grateful for is ... When I can tap into that place, deep inside of me, from which I can do things with a pure heart.

One of them was meeting a young filmmaker in the elevator, being moved by her intent and then managing to squeeze her into a very tight schedule. That young woman was Magda, her project is How Do You Live, and below is the video she had filmed:

Nov 30, 2017, 4 comments, 10 smiles In September of this year, we were blessed with the opportunity to welcome Reverend Heng Sure and his delegation of 40 people from all over the world to London! Our time together with the 11 monks and nuns and 30 lay people from the DRBA community was infused with so many moments filled with learnings and inspiration. Spending a week with monastics who have collectively cultivated for so many years was a remarkable experience -- it was beautiful to observe how by simply walking around a big city like London, their presence opened people's eyes and hearts in new ways. Perhaps people aren't used to seeing such large groups of monastics together in public places, or perhaps it is the joy that emanates from their presence (and years of cultivation) that ripples out to those around them.
