    Thank for sharing this letter and English translation. I often wondered if Thay could express himself through writing after his stroke. I thought he couldn’t write. If this truly his writing translated from vietnamese,that’s amazing.

    • Thanks Patty for this question. As you can see in the announcement accompanying this letter, Thay communicated his wish through gestures, and through nodding and shaking his head in response to proposed content for the letter.

      • Patty says:

        Thank you for clarifying this. I am amazed and grateful that you and all his caretakers are so in tune to Thay’s wants and needs. I have seen a couple of recent videos on YouTube showing his arrival in Vietnam and the temple, and deeply touched by how you all work together to help him. I can feel the positive and peaceful energy.
