More glorious than multicoloured banners and pennants blowing in the breeze, More beautiful than strings of pearls, jewel crowns, and golden or bone jewelry ornamenting dancing dakas and dakinis of our mind, More valuable than all the wealth and resources of the world, More powerfully peaceful than symphonies of soothing music, More powerfully wakeful than the sun rising over the snow-covered Himalayas-- Is a mind open as the cloudless sky, A mind unfathomable as the ocean. And the teacher who points out this true vast and profound nature of mind is then indeed most precious. To our vajra guru earth protector known more often as "Rinpoche" I offer these few heartfelt words of love and gratitude. May we see your Kingdom in our eyes. Linda Lewis 4/'07
