"I want to remind all of us that the peace, harmony, prosperity, and sanity of the world in general and of our individual selves can only be achieved through the survival of the teachings of the Buddha. Therefore, may we continue all the practices we do, but let us all also aspire and hope that Shakyamuni's teachings will be maintained and prevail. Let us beseech Shakyamuni Buddha to help distance us from hatred, greed, and ignorance and to bless us to merge with wisdom and compassion." ~ Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, 2017 New Year message
