Dear Your Holiness,

It is with heartfelt gratitude and appreciation that I reach out to you to say thank you. Thank you for being an inspiration in my life. Thank you for being a beacon of light, compassion, wisdom and love. Watching the film of you and the Archbishop was sheer delight for me. Your tenderness, your love, your laughter and your joy were contagious. I can't think of a better way to have started this new year than to witness the joy between the two of you. And to be reminded of the importance of perspective!

I am sure that it is sad to lose your good friend but I am sure that you will meet again in a future time. Thank you for bringing the true Dharma to the world and May you continue to benefit beings until all of samsara is emptied. 

With deep gratitude and humility,

Barbara Juniper
