Dear Lama Zopa Rinpoche,
I am writing to thank you from the depths of my heart for advising me to do a Hayagriva retreat. With Geshe-la’s incredible help, I was able to receive the initiation from the geshe at Sera Je College, along with a couple of hundred monks. The geshe then helped me to do the retreat, with all of the rituals, tormas and a fire puja. I am so lucky to know Geshe-la and thank you every day for sending him to us.
Your assistant made sure I had the English translation of the sadhana, as well as your commentary and advice about the importance of remembering the lam-rim during retreat. Another member of FPMT staff also offered many words of encouragement. I don’t know how I was lucky enough to know all of you. I only hope to prove worthy of such good fortune.
I am working to finish my fifth collection of 111,111 prostrations. I recited the Golden Light Sutra once while at Sera Je. I have recited the Sanghata Sutra five times and my goal now is to recite it once a month. I continue to recite the King of Prayers one to three times a day.
I don’t have enough words to express my sincere gratitude, but I dedicate any merit that I may have accumulated to the success of all of your Dharma projects. Please don’t leave us. Live a long time and continue to teach us all.
Much love and countless prayers,
