It was lovely to talk to you today.   I miss our talks! 

Here is my writing for Thay.  Thank you for giving it to the sisters.  Marianne has sent hers to the sisters.

Dear Beloved Thay,

This time of Corona Virus has been a chance to study and practice deeply and come together with sangha from all over the world. 

I am so grateful for all your teachings.  When I speak a kind word, when I stop and breath, when I walk mindfully and look deeply to transform my suffering, I feel that I am following in your footsteps.

I normally sit with the sisters of Nhap Luu, P.V. Australia and my local sangha but with zoom I am now also able to sit with the Melbourne sangha ,  and the Compassionate Ocean Sangha with members from all over the world.

I am practicing to be joyful, and to transform my suffering so I can help others.  I am grateful for the opportunity to study to be a Dharma Teacher and  mentor Order of Interbeing aspirants.  I vow to practice diligently with joy and mindfulness so  I can  be your continuation.

A deep bow to you

Daya Jepsen
