Dear Abhaya-la,
I hope you and Yab la are enjoying a peaceful, pleasant and productive time there in Pema Tsai. Here in Dzongsar I'm busy in the second year of studying logic and epistemology, and we are all in good health.

So I hope you feel fully prepared for the forthcoming Vajrakila Grand Ceremonies in Rajpur. I have every faith that you will pass with flying colours. As you know, the puja always begins on the anniversary of the 23rd Sakya Trichen, Ngagchang Chenpo Kunga Rinchen, who we often simply call Ngagchang Chenpo - (the great holder of mantra or, in Sanskrit, Mahamantradharin) or Ngagchang Chokyi Gyalpo - the Mantradharin who is King of Dharma. So I thought I would offer you a little inspiration for your big day by writing just an iota about our magnanimous ancestor's life, especially as I read a lot about Him and found it very uplifting when I was preparing for my Vajrakila exams just a few years ago.
