To Kuo Ning and other disciples, and to be shared with all Dharma-protecting laypeople:

On the way to Brazil I stayed a few days in Panama before reaching Brazil. How are Upasika Xie and Xu doing in their cultivation at in the monastery? Take good care of them and help their resolve for the Way grow. As to my mail, wait until I have an address in Brazil before you forward it to me. Letters written in English should also be forwarded to me. Is Kuo Ning’s illness better?

Wishing you
Vigor in your progress in the Way

March 23, l973

P.S. I have met many Chinese people who help me with everything!


To Kuo Ning, Kuo Chan, and others, and to be shared with the Dharma-protecting laypeople and disciples:

I arrived in São Paulo, Brazil yesterday. Temporarily, I am living in a hotel to rest for a few days before I meet Buddhists here. After doing that, I will write again. Disciples, you should all continue to work hard, to be courageously vigorous, and to forget yourselves for the sake of the Dharma, so that you can become the first ones in the West to become enlightened. In that way you will become vessels to rescue living beings throughout the Dharma Realm. By bringing forth a great resolve for Bodhi you can quickly realize the Unsurpassed Way. Don’t let precious time go by in vain. Be mindful of how swiftly Impermanence arrives. Urge each other on! Are Upasika Xie and Xu working hard to develop their skill? Are they still living at the Monastery? Is there any other news? Write and let me know.

Wishing you
Diligence and joy in the Dharma

To all disciples:

How tall has the Bodhi tree behind the monastery grown? Does someone water it every day? Are your Bodhi minds also growing larger? These matters are always on my mind.

By now you must have received the letter I sent you on June 14th. I will probably stay a few more days in Paraguay to observe more of the customs. Around July 10th I will go to Argentina. Therefore, after receiving this letter, if there are letters to forward to me, you can mail them to this hotel address in Paraguay. In addition, let’s set either Sunday or Wednesday at 2:30 pm San Francisco time as a time when you can call me so we can communicate from the main phone in the hotel. All three Bhikshunis can call me.

Wishing you
Diligence
