|the Hindu Monkey God-King, Hanuman|
On the Fire Monkey New Year
I wish you a heartfelt Tashi Delek.
Next year, this time, may we meet again
With smiles on our faces
And hearts full of joy.
May our teachers live long
May goodness spread wide
May the world be filled with compassion
May the earth revive its vitality
May beings live in peace.
May all these wishes come true
That I've made with a pure heart.
With respect, from Ringu Tulku February 2016
Hanuman was a key figure in a ancient Indian epic called the Ramayana, he was brave, perservering and loyal, devoted and selfless: he inspired others to face their ordeals and overcome obstacles, he is protector to Kali, and guards her temple doorways all over India.
