“Welcome to Palden Sherab Pema Ling, the retreat land of the Sunshine State of this beautiful country. I’m so grateful and thankful for all of you. Welcome everyone. This is our beautiful retreat land hermitage. We hope and pray by the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha that this will become one of the beautiful places where we cherish, glorify, and flourish the teachings of the Buddhadharma–the practice of love, kindness, and compassion–and completely saturate ourselves and others with these qualities until samsara is completely emptied and we all get enlightenment. We wish for that. Thank you.”
