Part 1 - Prelude
In July 1987, I foresaw in a dream that I would be going to Nepal before returning to Taiwan; in that dream I also saw a well dressed Lama. I did not know what would take me to Nepal, and guessed that I might meet the Dalai Lama. At the end of 1987 some friends told me that there was an American Buddhist professor, Robert Pryor, organizing a pilgrimage group, so I contacted him. Eventually I was able to join the January 1990 pilgrimage group.
I arranged my trip to include a stay in Taiwan on my return so I could pay my respects to my late Guru Yogi Chens sarira stupa, and also visit my parents, relatives and friends. When I received my itinerary I noticed the date of my returning to Taiwan would be one day before the Chinese New Years Eve; thus, I would be able to join the traditional Reunion Dinner of my family.
