For those who can attend the Monlam, Ringu Tulku will again be there, translating into English, and sends us all a message for Christmas.
"I would like to give my heartfelt greetings to all of you for a Merry Christmas and a very very Happy New Year too. May the coming year be healthy, happy, successful, meaningful and may you be beneficial to many people. I will keep all of you my dear friends in my mind when I pray under the Bodhi tree along with 10,000 other monks, nuns and many more Dharma brothers and sisters. May all your good wishes be fulfilled.
Your Friend, Ringu Tulku"
