Central Incense Brazier, Chua Giac Minh
After praying here this morning, our CEO took note of the following appeal for volunteers. Two days before, he had observed and spoken with a gentleman who had scaled the fence of the Pagoda's grounds. He acted out of concern for the safety of its monks, nuns, and sanctity. Fortunately, the gentleman and his family simply came from Modesto to purchase tofu from the temple and ask the nuns to pray for his daughter, who is recovering from surgery at Stanford Hospital.
Our CEO prayed for her full recovery, longevity, and happiness -- endorsing the following public announcement:
Buddhist volunteers are needed to visit with Buddhist patients at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto. The only requirement is that you have compassion and can speak English (bilingual in an Asian language is a big plus.) There will be a single day (6 hours) training session on Saturday, October 19. In addition, there will be a few on-line modules to complete, blood test screening, background check, and on-the-job mentoring by three experienced volunteers.
