Students wrote offering the merit of making tsa-tsas for Rinpoche’s long life and for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The students’ letter is below, followed by Rinpoche’s response.

Students’ letter

We have made 2,756 tsa-tsas—stupas, Mitukpas, Herukas, Green Taras and long-life deities—to benefit sentient beings, to purify all negative karma, obstructions, diseases, spirit harms, broken and damaged commitment vows, and to fulfill your holy wishes. We dedicated each tsa-tsa session for the long life and perfect health of the incomparably kind Guru Chenrezig, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

We also dedicated to you, holy and precious Guru, and continue to dedicate for your long life and the return of your holy Dharma speech. We dedicate to never being separated from you in this life, or in all of our future lives. Hook us with your great compassion forever! Please teach the holy Dharma to all sentient beings! Never give up on sentient beings and please remain until samsara ends!

Rinpoche's response 

Dear most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling one,
I dedicate the merits of your practice and what you requested, and also for myself to be beneficial to sentient beings and for both of you to achieve enlightenment quickly. Thank you very much a billion, zillion times. Please continue to live your life as much as possible with a good heart.

With much love and prayers...
