Dear Sangha of Gomde Denmark.
I hope you were able to see my online New Year’s greeting we sent out through Dharma Sun, but I also wanted to make sure to specifically extend those prayers to you.
I wish you all a healthy and happy long life, with great success in your practice. As mentioned in my video, I feel it is very important that we combine listening, reflecting, and meditating, all of which should be motivated with the vast wish to lead all beings to enlightenment.
Harmony and compassion are extremely powerful. This is our fuel from which the impossible becomes possible. Please never underestimate them. Through strong compassion automatically our obscurations will be purified. What does that mean? It means our negative emotions will become less and less, and this is what Dharma practice is about. When our negative emotions are less, we become more calm, and, as it is said, through calmness, the intrinsic wisdom will be able to shine forth.
Therefore please continue to give your uttermost to improve your kindness, your calmness, and your wisdom.
With love and blessings,
Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche
