In the kitchen of our apartment during one odd year in Seattle, you turned to me and said, “Let’s make a Buddhist College!” And so we did. In the ten years since we began, many worlds have risen and fallen again, and through it all the vision of Maitripa College has taken shape and become a refuge for so many. Through your example I have learned most of all to be more courageous, kinder, and more pure of heart. Thank you, Rinpoche, from my heart.

In different ways, the devotion, clarity, and consistency that both of you offer to this project, despite the odds, is the greatest teaching of them all. Thank you from my heart.
