My very dear nuns and students,
First, I want to say many billions and zillions of thanks for putting so much effort into counting the mani mantras this year, and trying to fulfill my advice. Thank you very much for that. I dedicate the merits to all those who did the recitations. Again, I want to say thank you very much.
In Buddha’s teachings it mentions there are so many amazing benefits of developing compassion. It is so important, and the benefits are unbelievable. Without developing compassion for others, there is no enlightenment; this means for yourself, but also for the numberless sentient beings of each of the six realms.
You can see how important it is to develop compassion. For that you need to receive blessings from the special deity Chenrezig. Therefore, you need to do meditation on and recitation of Chenrezig, just having knowledge alone is not enough.
With much love and prayers...
