A student advised that after hearing just one word from Rinpoche, she decided to go to Kopan, Nepal. She later forgave her husband, from whom she was separated, and he went to Kopan. They are both practicing now.

My most dear, most kind, most precious wish-fulfilling Linda,
Thank you for your letter. I am so happy that one word made you come to Kopan, then you forgave your husband and the next year your husband also came to Kopan. I thank both of you a billion, zillion times for what you have done in Dharma up to now.

Please continue your life with good heart and bodhicitta, as much as possible—that way you can achieve inner happiness, real happiness in your life. That is where it starts, then you can lead the life with happiness from that. It is the way to make your life most beneficial to every hell being, hungry ghost, animal, human being, sura, asura and intermediate state being, then of course it is beneficial for yourself by the way, without thinking.

I hope to see you soon.

With much love and prayers...
