Dear Holiness Dalai Lama,

My lessons with lama Karta years ago still remain in spirit and daily life. I teach Mindfulness and look every day to your picture but also his picture. I felt, on my trip to Tibet, that I went home. And after our lessons in Pullahari Monastery and the tracking in Tibet around Lhasa we had to go home, but it felt for me like I had to leave my homeland Tibet.

So You changed my life in a way I cannot explain in another way brought me home.

By myself but also in opening my heart and mind to where I came from.

I really really really am so thankful that I am here on this planet and had the possibility to receive the teachings of Buddhism and spread them all over where I can. You and Tutu are a couple of very special energy...You both ARE the Light. Really...and the humor is unpayable...thank you thank you thank you..

Love and good thoughts.....
