Rinpoche sent this advice to a student who was in a long retreat.

My most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling one,
I am just sending you my best regards. I didn't get to write for a long time, especially as now you are in retreat.

I believe you are doing the retreat for me and for all the sentient beings—for all the ants, all the maggots, all the ticks, all the mosquitoes. Numberless thanks to you for each and every second.

With much love and prayers ...
