Happy New Year to Everyone! May the coming year bring the ceaseless rain of all the blessings, inspiration and power of all the Buddhas and Arya Bodhisattvas for everyone. May all negative circumstances be purified. May all beings be endowed with all the necessities of life for themselves and to benefit others. May all positive qualities of love, kindness, moral discipline, compassion, working for others, patience, diligence and Bodhicitta blossom in the mindstreams of all beings and increase infinitely. In 2011 may we work together ceaselessly to transform our wonderful planet into the Shambhala Pure Land.
