2020 - The Hope!

Here it is - the much awaited New Year 2020!

I said 'much awaited' because the Year 2019 had been the toughest year for me and my family with serial of events happening, which I hope shouldn't happen to anyone.

The 2019 New Year Eve shall remain the darkest day yet. It was on this day last year that we had to accept the true reality of life - the impermanence. Waking up to a phone call, I couldn't come to terms with what had happened. I wished I was simply going through a bad dream. An unplanned journey in a packed taxi, yet so lonely and dry. Never expected the New Year to unfurl in that manner even in my wildest thoughts. Every time I visit Thimphu, I purposely avoid the sight of Lungtenzampa MSS, in particular the basketball court. Our final approach to that ground was heartbreaking and the sight of a tent 'housing' him was unbearable. It still kills me to the core to recollect the scene of my beloved brother lying lifeless! The pain that I endured by the  sight of my elderly parents shedding tears, weak and tired, beside him was deep in to my bones. Why you? Why us? I battled with these questions throughout, but deep inside I knew I will never get the answer.

Calls, messages, wishes from people didn't make any sense. In fact, I wished for none for I wasn't in the position to explain; I didn't have anything to explain as I was myself in utter disbelief. I cried out to my late brother to explain for himself! At the end though we had to find solace in the fact that nobody escapes from this ultimate route. It's just a matter of time, I heard people comforting us grieving. His passing had left a permanent scar and wound in the HEART of our family. One year has gone just like that since his passing and we have yet to come to terms with it and get healed, if it ever will.

The chain was forever broken and missing link never to be found. I just hope and pray that with the profound prayers and intentions, you be ushered with eternal peace and swift rebirth in the higher realms. May you meet with the Purest Dharma!
