Be calm, kind and clear.
This is the most valuable thing we human beings can learn, train in and master.
To be happy and live in harmony, liberate our minds and free others,
This is my deep wish.
This is why I take care of monks and nuns.
This is why I share the precious teachings with people from all countries.
