Students Prayer for Therese shared at recent BBMC retreat;
"With renunciation, the awakening mind of Bodhichitta and wisdom realising emptiness as the fundamental tenets on our path.
We pay homage to Shakyamuni Buddha and the lineage of Geshes that have gone and taught before us.
We give heartfelt thanks to you Therese,
for the opportunity to study the profound aspects of the dharma. Your understanding and experience with the dharma, is our window to insights and realisations, our inspiration for greater discipline, and allows us to transform our minds.
It is with gratitude, we give thanks for the teachings we receive.
It is with respect, we ask you to remain our teacher into the future.
And it is with love, we wish you peace, good health and long life."
