My most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling Jeff,
Numberless thanks from the heart for your Vajrasattva practice for my long life. Also, it purifies your obscurations and negative karma of so many lifetimes, collected from beginningless rebirths.
The immediate thing is to purify the cause of the lower realms and get a higher rebirth, this is what is done. Not only that, to achieve ultimate happiness; not only that, to achieve full enlightenment; not only that, to free the numberless sentient beings from the oceans of samsaric suffering and bring them to full enlightenment. [To free] every single hell being, who are numberless, as well as numberless pretas and numberless animals—every single ant, every cockroach, every rat—not only that, there are numberless universes, so the numberless ants in every universe, the numberless worms and the numberless fish in the ocean, so big and so small you can only see them with a microscope. Nobody is left out —every single butterfly, every frog, spider, snake, rat, every single cricket, every mosquito. It’s amazing, amazing, amazing. Then the numberless human beings, suras, asuras and intermediate state beings in the numberless universes. Wow, wow, wow, thank you very much.
That’s really the ultimate answer, to immediately purify the karma. That saves us from the lower realms, immediately. This is the answer, what should be done in preparation for death, to not be reborn in the lower realms.
Thank you very much. Please live the life as much as possible with the good heart and to benefit others.
With much love and prayers...
