Your loving messages on my birthday
Moved me and encouraged me.
Although a host of great masters taught me
And showered their blessings on me
I remained an idiot just because of my laziness.
If I can bring a slight smell of genuine dharma
In the mind stream of a single individual
I will feel that the efforts of those great teachers
Have not been completely wasted.
Your interest and appreciation of Dharma
Is my strength to live and work in this world.
