My very dear ones,
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you all very, very much, billion, zillion and trillions of times.
I do understand that people have a very strong interest in seeing the relics more than one time. I know it is not easy to accept the change, but this is like our body during the life—the body is small then we become teenagers, then we gradually get older, wrinkles form, so our body changes and we get very old. This is something we have to accept.
As Shantideva said: If there is something you can change then do it; if you can’t then no need to be unhappy, accept it.
In the West generally this is often what causes depression etc—not accepting change.
All of you created unbelievable skies of merits for months and years. Wow, wow, wow! You planted the seed of enlightenment in the continuum of many, many sentient beings, also you helped by developing devotion to the Buddha in the minds of sentient beings. I heard stories from people who in the beginning didn’t want to see the relics, but saw them later and were very happy.
We don’t have karma to see the Buddha now, but we do in the form of relics. All of you created unbelievable benefit, so please rejoice and feel great happiness and think of the benefits of the relics, as it is mentioned in the Golden Light Sutra.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
With much love and prayer...
