065: Without Seeing My Wife, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche Already Knew Her Condition

I pay homage to the His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche

Not long after I took refuge under Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, I together with some other Dharma brothers had a chance to have a meal with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. After the meal, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche asked me, “Is your wife forgetting a lot of things recently?” After thinking about it, I replied that I remembered nothing unusual about her behaviors. That day my wife was not there at the restaurant. Her co-worker at Taipei Veterans General Hospital where she worked as a nurse, Dr. Fong told Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche that my wife often forgot where she put patient’s insurance cards after taking them. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche very kindly told me that my wife was suffering from kidney problems, the reason being that after giving birth she did not take enough rest. It was not too late to cure the problems.

Returning home, I quickly told my wife what Rinpoche had said, and she agreed to go to a Chinese clinic very soon. Once she did, the diagnosis was just as Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche described— she had a problem with her kidneys. Around the same time, the results of my wife’s employee health check came back and the results were the same, the numbers for her kidneys were beyond the normal range. In the following weeks and months my wife went regularly to a Chinese clinic and took Chinese medicine. After taking Chinese medicine for a year, the results were just like Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche had predicted—my wife recovered completely. Before the treatment, my wife’s face had a dark cast to it and she tired easily. After the year, however, her face shined, she no longer felt tired easily, and she stopped forgetting things. She had the hospital do another health check and all the indicators for her kidneys came back normal. I feel deep gratitude for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s care. If not for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s reminder, we would continue to assume that my wife’s fatigue was due to her work. And by not taking care of the problem in a timely fashion, the imbalance would become much harder to treat.

Gratitude to the His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche
