Thank you to everyone who supported me in 2013/14 to fund and complete my first unit of clinical pastoral education (CPE). It is because of you that I am able to enter into my third unit of CPE this fall.

Thank you to everyone who supported by 2012/13 feral cat trap/neuter/return project. Because of you, twelve feral cats in El Monte were vaccinated, de-wormed, deloused, neutered or spayed, and ten were returned to their neighborhood while two (the kittens) were adopted into good homes.

At this time, I am employed full-time and financially stable. If you would like to support the work of Buddhist caregivers, please consider these causes:

Support Dr. Khim Berling’s Compassion Without Borders charity that is currently sending assistance to Nepal in the wake of their devastating April 2015 earthquake. Now is when they need the aid most, when disease is spreading, winter is coming, rebuilding has barely begun, but the mainstream media has all but forgotten Nepal. Even a little bit goes a long way!

    Monica it’s Eric Blaydes, I had no idea you’d moved to L.A. Wow good for you, that explains a lot of things. Buddhist Chaplin eh? Good luck with that. How are donations to your blog coming along?

    Best of luck in all you do!
    Mr. Blaydes

      Hi, Mr. Blaydes. Yeah, came here a year and a half ago. Planning to be a Navy Chaplain in about another year and a half. I don’t really get any donations, but I thought I’d put it out there, just in case. The blog doesn’t have a wide enough circulation yet. Hope things are going well in Japan!

    Hi Monica,

    I’m Sri Vishnu Tanay from India, a self-published author. My maiden work is ‘The Unconquerable Heart: God’s Fist’ (Facebook page) (Amazon Page)

    I came across your blog, while i was searching for a Buddhist equivalent phrase on Righteousness. But unfortunately couldn’t find the exact phrase i was looking for. I hope you would help me find one for my upcoming work which treads on implementing logic to religious preachings.

    I would like to know the Buddhist equivalent of the following preaching…
    Christianity: Bible – Matthew (5:6) “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for their needs shall be fulfilled”
    Islam : Quran – Surah AI-Baqarah (2:177),
    Hinduism : Manu Smriti (8:15) – “Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah” (Safeguard Righteousness and Righteousness shall safeguard you)
    Judaism : Psalm (1 to 6)

    All the above preachings relate to human morals and code of conduct and place ‘Righteousness’ as the foremost virtue to be followed to attain spirituality or enlightenment and I interpret it as the virtue that doesn’t need faith to be upheld and rather could be followed devoid of any faith. I am in search of a similar Buddhist phrase, along with the name of the book and the chapter and verse number. I hope you could help me in this regard.

    My e-mail id is
    I look forward to your reply.
    Thank you,
    Sri Vishnu Tanay
