    Thank you Lama Gursam for your wonderful teachings at the Bucks County Sangha. I will be practicing the meditation techniques you taught, and I look forward to seeing you again in the near future!

  2. Thank you Lama Gursam for your wonderful service tonight in Springfield Vt, and in Keene NH all week. You and John have been a great inspiration to me, and I hope to see you two again in the near future. Your example has inspired me to form a foundation to help my people as well. Thank you so much. You are truly a Bodhisattva if i have ever met one.

  3. Dear Friends and Sangha,

    As this time of year arrives, I picture you in my mind as I prepare for my morning meditation. I would not be able to carry out my studies, my meditative retreats, and my projects to help others with out your kind assistance. I visualize you at my side as I practice each morning.
    Currently I am in the east (India, Nepal, and Bhutan), attending precious dharma teachings from senior teachers, going on meditative retreats’ trying to apply the essence teachings to my heart and mind, and coordinating various projects of The Bodhicitta Foundation between sessions.
    I look forward to visiting with you, and sharing dharma again in late spring of 2014.

    Under my guidance and coordination a variety of projects for The Bodhicitta Foundation are in various stages of development and implementation.
    The projects include, assisting a Buddhist nunnery, helping refurbish a monastic school’s kitchen and dinning area, preparing an outdoor basket ball court for Tibetan refugee children in Bir, continuing to provide assistance for educational and health needs of refugees, and helping with the health and safety needs of the animal population of Bir. These projects are dear to my heart, and I personally provide oversight, as I travel to the east each year. None of these projects would be possible, without your kind generosity which I am deeply grateful for every day.
    As you all know, The Bodhicitta Foundation is a recognized 501 c 3 Charitable Organization recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. Under their regulations, donations to The Bodhicitta Foundation are tax deductible. As this year draws to a close, your kind donations are greatly appreciated.

    May the New Year 2014 bring you the benefits of the Buddha dharma, and the realization of joys of active engaged bodhicitta.
