At KMP's book club today, David Lai presented his autobiography, "There's No Way But Up", which relates how he met HE Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and how Rinpoche literally changed his life. Articulate, off-the-cuff, natural and passionate, David shared how he never thought he could write and that it was only through Rinpoche's advice to write and Rinpoche telling him he would be successful in it that he finally decided to write his autobiography.
Of course Rinpoche is never wrong as David's book sold out the first print and David has received great response from readers - not just from Malaysia, but other countries too.
David's writing style is his own and he speaks directly to the reader from the heart, sharing his love for Dharma always.
I am very proud of David - he has matured over the past few years that I have had the privilege of knowing him and I look forward to seeing him fly!
