As the year 2016 is about to end and 2017 is looming, as the monkey year is about to fade and the rooster is about to crow, I wish to offer my gratitude and appreciation to all the KF supporters, those who volunteered, and those who wished us well. It is your immense effort, time, and energy, and it is your generosity and good wishes that have not only inspired us but made us grow and strengthen. You gave us the ability to help so much more. I would like to offer my prayers and best wishes to all of you for the new year.
Meanwhile, I want to remind all of us that the peace, harmony, prosperity, and sanity of the world in general and of our individual selves can only be achieved through the survival of the teachings of the Buddha. Therefore, may we continue all the practices we do, but let us all also aspire and hope that Shakyamuni’s teachings will be maintained and prevail. Let us beseech Shakyamuni Buddha to help distance us from hatred, greed, and ignorance and to bless us to merge with wisdom and compassion.
Particularly this year, let us pray to Arya Tara to protect us from all forms of ailments, obstacles, and obscurations of the outer, inner, and secret. Protect our loved ones and families and all the children, from the wrath of pollution, disease, war, famine, and elemental calamities. May peace be on Earth and peace be in our homes, may peace be in our hearts.

Thank you dear Rinpoche for this wonderful message.

I feel connected in an instance and will always remember, just in the right moment the essence will appear.

Dear Rinpoche, thank you very much for giving us all the opportunity to share in this universal beneficial message and activities towards peace and ultimate happines according to the great compassion and wisdom of realized teachers and uncomparable Lord Buddha. Your words and the work of the Khyentse Foundatation, 84000 and Siddharta’s intent are again and again very encouraging, guiding and inspiring. Here in Holland I’m doing quite well, like visiting Karma Deleg Chöpel Ling last Christmas, helping printing prayers flags for Losar, and practising Tara, Guru Rinpoce and Chenrezig daily. Love and Prayers ,Marlou van Hoorn.
Dear Rinpoche, thank you so much for your words, feeling that it is coming from the bottom of your heart. I wish you all the best and may your work and your doing be endless. so that many people reach your words right in their hearts. Thank you. Love and Prayers. Karin Leder
Thank you Rinpoche
I suppose for those who cannot suffer with Jesus and gain the mercy, compassion and forgiveness there, Buddism reiterates the message…. either way when we are willing to feel our own sufferings deeply and call upon mercy, compassion is always at hand.
‘could’or “might’ wane denotes the sentiment/aspiration more accurately than “may”.
Thank you, Rinpoche, who embodies the three jewels. Love
Thank you very much !!! Rinpoche …Blessing for you …Eternal Love
