And now comes the sad time to leave this wonderful place! I have tried to help out and it is enough to have met so many enlightening beings! The old generation must step aside for the young and attend to practicing Dharma with all the sincerity and open heart possible for such antiques! :smile:

My wish for all here is to generate boddhicitta, generate metta, dedicate all merits, never ignore your teachers instructions! I was told a long long time ago in a dream. "How can you uphold the tradition of ******** if you won't even meditate?" I thought I was not bound by postures and mind states!! I wasn't right. Too bad it took so many years to realize it! I honestly am a failed practicer, but there is one prize even in that: at the moment one deeply realizes tremendous hopeless failure... :heart:

No amount of bowing suffices :namaste: :namaste: :namaste:

Taking refuge,
KTG
