First of all, I wish to express my great gratitude to Holy Master for accepting me as a student.
I was not raised in a spiritual manner, so have struggled most of my life to find my way to the right path.
I always felt a strong affinity to Eastern religion and it’s practices, and have read numerous books on them from various writers claiming to have the answers. I have meditated with the techniques I uncovered for many years, but always longed for a true, living Master to guide and teach me.
I feel that my prayers have finally been answered by leading me to Holy Master. It is obvious that he is a great being and I feel blessed to be in his presence.
And from what I have learned in my searching, I know that just finding a great master is not enough. You have to be worthy of such a great one’s time and attention. And this can often take many years to be accepted, if it ever occurs at all.
So I truly realize the great blessing I am receiving by being in Holy Master’s presence and his classes. And I would feel truly blessed and grateful to be able to continue to be his student. From the very beginning, I felt his presence within me, and the Dharma he taught has already benefited me greatly. I treasure this opportunity, and hope to diligently do the practice and follow the five precepts given to the best of my ability.
I used to dream of becoming a Monk and living in a monastery so I could devote my life to becoming enlightened. I am getting old now though, and I don’t know if I have the ability to follow such a path anymore. I definitely plan to continue on to the best of my ability and as far as it takes me though.
I think it would be wonderful to be able to continue on and become a Preacher so I could teach others. But I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, so I am taking it one step at a time. I am at a time in my life though where I may be able to devote more of my life to my spiritual practice.
At the very least I would greatly appreciate the chance to take the Converted Disciple class after the Converted Student class I am currently attending. As Holy Master has stated several times that the first three levels are really necessary in order to get the most benefit from the Dharma.
Thank You For Everything.
