FROM YONG VUI KONG TO HIS MOTHER:
Wishing Mom Happy Birthday
10th June, Thursday
May happiness spread in all the four directions.
Iâ€™m doing well here. Everyday I practice (my Buddhism) and study.
3rd Brother, Second Brother come to see me many times every week. 3rd bro, 2nd bro and I are healthy. 3rd broâ€™s face used to have a lot of acne, now less. He also cut his hair, looks fresher, and much more handsome. 3rd bro and 2nd bro and I know how to take care of ourselves, to choose whatâ€™s best for ourselves. I read a lot here. If I come across a good book, I will recommend to 2nd and 3rd Bro. When they visit me, I will take the chance to share the Dharma, give them the proper outlook. I have confidence that they will both succeed in their own paths. Mom, have faith in the Buddha and the Bodhisattvas! Read more when youâ€™re free. Best is read the Buddhist Scriptures. Occasionally, watch the Buddhist VCDs, or go to the temple and listen to Dharma talk, practice Buddhism â€“ many benefits! Because we are all bound to pass away one day, our bodies are impermanent. Just like wearing clothes need to pull back (I have no idea what the phrase means, even though the word æŒ½ means â€˜pull backâ€™), when you know the Dharma, it will be useful after the body dies. So recite the mantras when you have time. Thatâ€™s best.
â€œNamo Buddha, Namo Dhama, Namo Sandha
Namo Amitabhaâ€?â€¦. Always recite, Mom!
Recite with sincerity, and faith.

An excerpt from Once A Jolly Hangman, Singapore Justice In The Dock
” ‘The sentence of this court upon you is that you will be taken from this place to a lawful prison to be hanged by the neck until you are dead. And may the Lord have mercy on your soul.’
The body will be left suspended for cu least 20 minutes to ensure death has taken place or while it stops writhing. The face will be purple, engorged with blood, the neck covered with lacerations, the tongue swollen and protruding from the mouth, eyes nightmarishly bulging.”
