Tashi Delek!  This is a special message for my East Coast sanghas in New York, Boston, and New Jersey, and to my sangha in Germany as well.  First I wish you happiness and health in mind and body. This year I had a lot of traveling to my sanghas in India, Nepal, and Singapore and was away from home a long time.  Unfortunately, I will not be making a trip to the East Coast or to Germany in 2018. I also plan a personal retreat for this November, the first in a long time. I keep my East Coast and German Dharma brothers and sisters in my heart and send blessings to you all.
