Your Holiness,

Whenever I see you on the screen tears well up, you simply touch my heart and embody hope as well as boundless compassion to which I aspire every day. I am so privileged to have been In McLeod Ganj and within a metre of you in this body, with my daughter.

I am blessed to have been born within your earthly lifetime. Your lightness of touch and humour lift everyone and help us to fly and dream of being Buddhas one day.

Love and more love to you.
