Student’s letter

Dear Lama Zopa Rinpoche,
I wish to share with Rinpoche the fact that I have completed 375 nyung näs. I offer Rinpoche the 375 completed nyung näs.  I hope to return to the practice within the next week and believe that I shall be well into the 400s by December. I am deeply in love with the practice and hope to devote the rest of my life to doing it.

Your grateful student …

Rinpoche’s response

My most dear, most precious, most kind one,
Please enjoy, enjoy more with bodhicitta. Doing the nyung näs as I wished is incredible, thank you very much. A billion, zillion, numberless thanks, that is incredible. I have nothing much to offer you, but I want to send you some robes.

With much love and prayers …
