Thinking of karmic connections; in how Fran Lewis was unwavering in helping CTR in the earliest of times. Also THEN there was plenty of controversy -- this did not matter to her. She knew that laying the ground work for Rinpoche to come to N. America would be of great benefit for many to come. She worked tirelessly during those creative formative years. Now in July 2020 we still have controversies with massive societal changes, these karmic connections we [young and old] may have are very precious indeed. May we follow in her footsteps and take hold of these rare positive energies and bring them to useful fruition.
