I just want to mention briefly my thanks to all of the monastics and lay kalyana mitta here at D&D for a very positive, happy, and valuable experience here in 2019, and (mindful of the challenges going on now, with climate change fires, food insecurity, and war, etc.) wish each and every one of you a healthy, safe,and happy 2020.
“May beings all live happily and safe,
and may their hearts rejoice within themselves.
Whatever there may be with breath of life,
whether they be frail or very strong,
without exception, be they long or short,
or middle-sized, or be big or small,
or dense, or visible or invisible,
or whether they dwell far or they dwell near,
those that are here, those seeking to exist—
may beings all rejoice within themselves.”
