My most dear wish-fulfilling one,
How are you? Thank you very, very much for your great contribution to these precious teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the eighteen different lam-rims. This has never happened in the past, giving all these together.
Thank you very much. Thank you a billion, zillion times. This is to plant the seed of all the realizations, all the path of awakening and to plant the seed of enlightenment from the real Buddha Chenrezig.
This is incredibly rare. You can't imagine the benefit sentient beings receive from you, because of your kindness, your help, so that His Holiness is able to give these teachings, thus giving sentient beings the opportunity to achieve enlightenment.
Thank you also numberless times—thanks from all the buddhas and bodhisattvas and on behalf of all the Sera Je monks—thanks for your great kindness, your incredible generosity, offering for the food each year so they can continue listening, reflecting and meditating, and practicing the Buddha’s teachings and commentaries by Indian pandits and Tibetan enlightened lamas, such as Lama Tsongkhapa and so forth.
This makes it possible to preserve the Dharma and spread the Dharma in this world, now and also in the future—in future lives and universes, by bringing sentient beings to enlightenment. Can you imagine?
In order to give teachings for us, the Buddha collected the merit of wisdom and merit of virtue for three countless great eons, from the Mahayana path of merit, from there up to the first bhumi. From the first bhumi up to eighth bhumi is the second eon and from eighth bhumi to the tenth bhumi is the third eon. He bore so much hardship to complete the two types of merit in order to achieve enlightenment for us. The Buddha revealed the correct teachings for us so that he can guide us correctly to enlightenment.
With much love and prayers...
PS. I hope to see you again soon.
