My most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling one,
I am very sorry for the many eons of delay in replying to your letter. I checked regarding your request and it comes out best for you to wait three years. It seems there is an obstacle to becoming ordained before that. It seems there are some life obstacles, so first you need to read the Amitayus Long Life Sutra fifteen times.
You also need to do the short White Tara meditation practice each day. If you have received a great initiation or even a lower tantra initiation such as Chenrezig, you can visualize yourself as White Tara. Otherwise visualize White Tara on your head or in front of you, [emanating] white nectar beams. Then you can recite the mantra, and think that all the sickness, spirit harm, obstacles, negative karma for your life, and negative karma and delusions collected from beginningless rebirths are totally purified.
In the morning, after blessing the speech and doing the daily motivation practice The Method to Transform a Suffering life into Happiness (Including Enlightenment), you can do White Tara meditation.
You also need to liberate one hundred animals that would otherwise be killed, so that means fishing bait, worms or any other animals that would be fed to others. Please follow the instructions in my book, Liberating Animals, on how to do animal liberation correctly.
Set up an altar outside on a table and put as many tsatsas and pictures as possible on it. You can make offerings to the holy objects, so also put out water bowls. Then take the animals, the insects and so forth that are going to be liberated around the altar as much as you can. Each time you take them around it creates the cause of enlightenment, [according to] how many tsatsas and pictures you have on the altar—if you have one hundred tsatsas or pictures, then it creates one hundred causes of enlightenment for each insect or animal you have taken around. Therefore having many holy objects on the table is very important, so please follow my book on how to do the practice.
Billions of thanks for offering service at the center. You should know that you are offering service to all sentient beings. Through the center you benefit all sentient beings because all the people who are coming to learn Dharma there will later generate bodhicitta motivation and whatever actions they do—meditation, prayers, prostrations, whatever—are for sentient beings, as much as possible. That’s how the center enlightens all sentient beings, so your service at the center is service for all sentient beings, for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, for Lama Yeshe, for numberless buddhas and for Mickey Mouse, me.
Please continue to make your life most meaningful with the thought of bodhicitta day and night and in every action you do.
With much love and prayers ...
