Up in the sky's expanse, true being, unborn, forever pureBlog reader Luyen posted this comment that summarizes the feelings and aspirations of so many whose lives were deeply touched and transformed by the Karmapa's first visit to America:
Beautiful is the world below me—how many colors do I see?
But when I look, I can't find anything that's born or has a root
So the time has come to meditate on true reality, of ego-clinging free.
-- Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche, "The Sky Dragon's Profound Roar"
So rare a thing it is to have a being dedicated solely to the happiness of others, touch the hearts of so many in such a profound way...
Your teachings were profound and your aspirations long lasting, I pray that you will return soon, as it's clear that everyone will benefit.
