Due to the eminent blessing of the buddhas, bodhisattvas, and due to my special attitude and the unbetraying dependent arising, may all my pure prayers be succeed immediately.
[Rinpoche recites in Tibetan]
So thank you very much, for everybody for coming from very far to Bodhgaya, so this is part of the experience. Part of the experience , so by bearing the hardships to practice Dharma so we purify all those many eons, many lifetimes, heavy negative karmas and collect extensive merits, so that’s the reason why we came here, to collect extensive merits and to purify the mind and to make closer our mind to the realizations of the path to enlightenment. So, yeah, for that, so, maybe quite a bit suffered, coldness and all the things, tiredness and coldness and many things, many needs, coldness and tiredness and many needs, okay, so but however, it’s extremely worthwhile, so nobody became enlightened without bearing hardships to practice Dharma. So, it’s extremely worthwhile. So we beared, we suffered so much for negative karma, we suffered so much from beginningless rebirth for creating negative karma. To create the cause of samsara we suffered so much, we sacrificed our life numberless times, so this is one time we sacrificed our life for Dharma practice. So we should realize, should ?remember that. And all the people who did, who set up all the offerings, these beautiful offerings, so I would like to thank very, very much, and as well as the organization here, Tony and everybody, so I would like to thank very much.
So, good night, good morning.
