We would like to thank the listeners of Circle Of White Light Radio for their donations to the Pay It Forward fund.
As we get older, aches and pains start to turn up so thanks to Mary from the assemble group, she put me in touch with Sifu Nick Costello, who runs the Shaolin Buddhist Temple just outside of Slane, Co. Meath.
Now, when I told Sifu Nick that I had a few aches and pains, he said the buddhist practice does not allow to charge for people who are in pain or are ill. Now, I appreciate that this is "service to others" but I do believe that some form of donation should be made as it is an exchange of energy, but Sifu Nick would not accept payment.
I admire his conviction and the many, many people he has treated for free (but Banks/ESB etc don't care). so to help Nick in around about way for all the people he has, is and will treat for free, I think this "service to others" practice has to be appreciated, so a donation was made to the Shaolin Temple to allow him to allocate the donation to what he feels he wants to allocate it to.
So anyone that is in pain or is ill will be treated for free, but please consider a small donation to the Temple as a mark of respect.
He also teaches Kung Fu, Tai Chi and a host of other classes. Check out his website. Sifu Nick will be on the show in a few weeks time.
