Dreams, Blessings, and Love: Betty Voon's Path with Lama Gangchen

This week, we are delighted to have Betty Voon on the show, a native of Malaysia. Her journey with Lama Gangchen began in the 1990s at the age of 18. A year later, she sought Lama to be her teacher, initiating a lifelong commitment to studying and collaborating on foundation activities.

Known for her kindness and patience, Betty contributed to translations, assisted sick patients visiting Lama, and played a role in Peace Media, collaborating with founder Sunny Koo on books and films promoting peace. Currently, she actively participates in the Malaysian Medicine Buddha Center in Kuala Lumpur.

In this conversation, you'll learn:

  • Lama Gangchen’s Healing Presence: Betty Voon shares transformative moments encountering Lama Gangchen’s healing energy and the impactful serenity of his compassionate smile.
  • Service and Peace Advocacy: Engaging actively in Lama Gangchen’s foundation, Betty exemplifies a life of service and contributes to peace advocacy through translations, assisting patients, and collaborating with Peace Media
  • Spiritual Awakening and Growth: Betty’s story reflects personal growth and spiritual awakening, showcasing the ease of seeking refuge with Lama Gangchen, dreams as a form of communication, and the symbolic significance of water and cream pills in her healing journey.

Betty Voon, a name adorned with grace,

A student of life, in wisdom’s embrace.

From Malaysia’s shores, her journey unfurled,

In the presence of Lama, her destiny swirled.

At just eighteen, she met the Lama’s gaze,

A bond formed then, in mystical ways.

With humility and devotion, she sought his light,

To walk the path of truth, both day and night.

Yearning for knowledge, she humbly beseeched,

To learn from Lama, her heart reached.

Thus began her odyssey, a lifelong quest,

Guided by love, in service, she’s blessed.

Translating tongues from Chinese to English,

Building bridges of understanding, she’d cherish.

In the halls of healing, she lent her hand,

Comforting souls, in a foreign land.

With Peace Media, her spirit soared,

Spreading messages of harmony, adored.

Beside Sunny Koo, she penned tales of peace,

Crafting narratives, where conflicts would ease.

Amidst the bustle of Kuala Lumpur’s din,

She finds solace in the Medicine Buddha’s kin.

At the Malaysian center, her heart finds its home,

In the sanctuary of healing, where spirits roam.

Betty Voon, a beacon of light so pure,

In every step, her kindness endures.

A testament to love, in its boundless grace,

In her presence, the world finds its sacred space.

Many Thanks to our Guest!
