Rinpoche offered this advice and encouragement to a student who had received extensive private teachings on lam-rim and calm abiding [Tib: shi-nä].

Most dear, most precious, most kind, wish-fulfilling one,
I am very happy that you got this great opportunity to receive teachings on bodhicitta and shi-nä.

Shi-nä needs bodhicitta and bodhicitta needs shi-nä. Please try to continue what you can. It’s very important.

Numberless times we have won the world cup in soccer but that is nothing. That only leads to the lower realms. If you continue, it is possible you can get to the ninth stage. Then it is easy to achieve the realizations of the lam-rim path and even emptiness, then the realizations of tantra.

This is very exciting, the most exciting thing in the world.

With love and prayer…
