A student wrote that he had stopped doing his commitments, but had now started again.

My most dear, most kind, most precious wish-fulfilling one,
Thank you very much for your kind letter, you explained very clearly, so now you are trying to do your commitments again. That is extremely worthwhile.

I want to tell you something, the commitments the guru gave are very important to do. One thing is it affects not only this life, but it affects your next life—you can’t do any commitments or don’t want to do commitments in your next life and the next life after that, so you are affected for hundreds and thousands of lives. Therefore, it is very important in this life to put effort as much as possible, so as not to have a negative effect in your future lives. Otherwise for hundreds and thousands of future lives there is an effect and it gets worse and worse.

This life is very short. Generally, as you know, life is very short, death can happen this year, next year, next day, next week, today or tomorrow, not sure. The only thing that benefits us, that we can enjoy for all our lives up to enlightenment, is Dharma. That is all we can enjoy at the death time. So practicing Dharma in this life is the only thing that can help us.

Thank you very much.

With much love and prayers ...
