I hope for peace to break out everywhere and people to work together to create a perfect, happy, peaceful and prosperous planet in the coming year along the lines of the Shambhala Pure Land.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May they be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May they not be bereft of the supreme bliss which is free from suffering.
May they rest in great impartiality, free from attachment and aversion to those near and far.

May we all practice well in 2011, purifying much bad karma and collecting merits.

To develop bodhichitta, which is the actual practice, you need to develop such compassion that you simply cannot bear others being tormented by suffering. But in order to develop this compassion, you must know exactly how you yourself are plagued by suffering. And you must understand that the whole of samsara is by nature suffering. But first you must fear the lower realms, for without this you will have no repudiation of celestial and human happiness. You must therefore train your mind in the small- and medium- scope parts of the path. -- Pabongka Rinpoche
