Dear Dharma Master,
First off, I hope you are fine and all is well. Though we haven’t been talking about it, I’m up to just over two hour-long meditation sessions per day. Without your influence, nothing remotely like that would have come about, so please accept my appreciation for your instruction. I am looking to do more in future.

Thank you for sharing with us your positive experience from our combined Chan (meditation) and Pure Land (recite the Buddha’s name) practice.
As I indicated to you earlier, you came in at First Dhyana and may I say, in pretty physical shape. After one year of practice, you’ve reached Fourth Dhyana and basically your health improved 100%. I’m impressed with your steadfastness especially since you have to drive 45 minutes each way to come to us on both Saturdays and Sundays.
Keep up the good work.
Let’s keep on improving your kung fu (and thus your rebirth grade) before we send you off for rebirth to the Western Bliss Pure Land to practice with Amitabha Buddha.
