A message from Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche

 

What a year it has been so far. Who would have guessed that we would all be under lockdown in our villages, towns, cities, and countries? Now, most of the world is remaining at home, wondering what is happening, what to do next, and what the future will bring. We cannot say for sure what the new normal will be, but we all have time to reflect on the preciousness of life, on the importance of family, friends, and colleagues, and on all that truly matters. This coming year will bring new challenges, and although we are physically practicing social distancing, in our hearts we are all united. 

 

During this time of coronavirus, let us pray that everyone be free from anxiety and fear, may everyone realize the preciousness of human life and never take life for granted. May everyone respect all beings equally and have love and compassion for all sentient beings. This pandemic is very difficult for all of us, but this too shall pass, and we will recover and make sense of this and learn from this. 

 

Let us breathe without fear and remain peaceful, strong, and safe. 

 

With prayers and blessings, Rinpoche
