Your Holiness my Brother,

In 1959 you had to flee your home. That year I broke my neck. The many kindnesses of others and hard work brought back my capacities and taught me gratitude and the personal need to give back to others. Your inspiration and my embrace of the Bodhisattva Vow guided my purpose in life. I am grateful to you and the dharma.

My life was validated by your blessing when we met April 16, 1999 at FIU in Miami. Thank you for guidance. Long life and blessings.
