Florence loves friends and nurturing friendships. During her previous professional career as a business woman, and in her current involvement with Rinpoche’s mandala in working for the dharma, she has met and fostered close connections and relationships with many individuals. Through sharing information with them about the great projects that Khyentse Foundation supports, many of them have been inspired to support the foundation’s work as well.
Florence was born and raised in Malaysia in a Mahayana Buddhist family. Her parents sent her to Buddhist elementary and secondary schools, and guided her to take refuge at the age of three.
Growing up I had no question that I was a Buddhist, but I did not start any dharma practice until meeting Rinpoche in 1990. He changed my life. Working for the guru and the dharma is not only my aspiration but also my passion. There is nothing more meaningful and gratifying than seeing the Buddhadharma flourish.
