My most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling students and brothers and sisters,

How are you? I hope everyone is happy, because of having found the most precious human rebirth and having met the Dharma, Mahayana Dharma. This means Mahayana teachings and lamrim, which show how to practice Dharma—the Hinayana and Mahayana sutra and Mahayana tantra taught by Buddha, the graduated practice to achieve enlightenment.

Please continue to make your life most beneficial for every single sentient being—for the numberless ants, numberless mosquitoes, numberless insects, numberless fish in the ocean, and the smallest insects—so that means naturally for yourself, by the way.

Live life with bodhicitta, for sentient beings. Thank you very much, I hope to see you soon.

With much love and prayers ...
