My most dear ones,
[You have] compassionate hearts, even though I took the time on the empty days to give a talk to the students about the most important thing, the root of the path to enlightenment, correctly following the guru with thought and action, which gives all the happiness—this life’s happiness and the next life's happiness, liberation from samsara and [attainment of the] state of complete enlightenment, the elimination of all obscurations and completion of all the realizations.
At the end, I did the initiation and stayed there all night, to finish on time. But I spent most of the time at your house sleeping like a pig, a very fat pig. Of course in the ordinary world, ordinary people believe that it is a very good thing. Maybe their lives are very busy or hard, so for them plenty of sleep is quite important, the most important thing. But in Dharma it is a total waste of life.
It is said in the teachings by one famous Buddhist pandit: “Anyone who is ignorant, not collecting even a small treasure of merit, enters the house of suffering, the house of unceasing suffering. He enters the lower realms—the hells, the hungry ghost or animal realms. That is like the businessman who goes to the land of jewels and comes back home empty-handed”.
Like that, not only is it a totally wasted life, but also all the actions become negative karma, and the cause of reincarnating in the lower realms. I am very sorry for that.
Before I leave tomorrow, I will dedicate for both of you to have a healthy body and mind, and for all your wishes to be successful according to the holy Dharma. Never to be reborn in the lower realms and to achieve peerless happiness, the state of omniscient mind, as quickly as possible.
We all enjoyed staying at your house. [Thank you for] all your kindness, giving us happiness from beginningless rebirths.
With much love and prayer...
