New Year Greeting from Rinpoche

At this time of the Western calendar’s New Years of 2013, with respect, I offer prayers for all of my disciples and Dharma brothers and sisters; and for the success of all of your activities that are in accord with Dharma, unmixed with negativity. People identify New Years as a time for celebration. In my opinion, it is time for rejoicing if in the past year we could be free of negative conduct; otherwise, it is also time for purification. I pray, not wasting this precious new year, that from this day onwards, with kind intentions and commitment to helping others, that you may enjoy long healthy life under the sun of Dharma, ever shaded from obstacles to well-being and prosperity.
