Good idea Kirt, I have reminded him of that possibility. Do not know yet what he may do.

Re foreign health care for Dharmamitra: It is a possibility, but not likely he says. The U of Washington Medical Center Transplant Team has been taking care of him and they should continue.

It is not an emergency situation - yet. But his medical team will do all they can (hopefully) to secure financial aid. There are wealthy Chinese Buddhists that may step forward - we shall see.

Good news, the very expensive drug therapy has been covered and Dharmamitra is a few days into taking it. He notices an improvement already and expects after one month to be almost cured. The entire regimen is three months, so he will follow through and since there is over 90% success with this treatment - it looks rosy!

These are awesome news, Will!! Thank you very much for the update!

Let's all rejoice and dedicate the merit of our practice to the well-being and long life of Bhikshu Dharmamitra!

Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

This is truly a cause for rejoicing. Dharmamitra's translations have been very important for many practitioners; I've learned from them, and our little Tendai sangha has read some of them together in discussion groups. May Dharmamitra enjoy a long and healthful life, and may his Dharma activities flourish!
