    Dearest Rinpoche, thank you so much, these teachings are so wonderful and precious. How lucky we are to be able to touch them with your excellent help. Specially today I wish to thank you very gratefully for this last teaching which is so helpful for me to correct my own mistakes, hopefully I wish to be able to fully integrate all that you have explained. Love Yumma.

    dear Rinpoche, thank you for these teachings which sound so practical and helpful in daily life, but sometimes, under stressful conditions, I find it hard to remember to put them into practice. Is it best to have a firm and strong resolve to accumulate positive deeds or is it better to be more relaxed about it and to hope that in time it will get easier?
    best regards
