As many of you know, Namdrol (Miranda Adams) had a very unfortunate event in recent days. Although the situation with her health is still quite critical, our teachers and all our friends around the world are praying and practicing very deeply on her behalf. So at this moment, we can see lots of improvement – progress that is far beyond the initial prediction of the emergency room doctors.
As many of you also know, Namdrol has a mindset that means that every time a challenge comes before her, she wants to conquer it and to go straight through it for the purpose of benefitting others. So I see that she is doing the same with the current situation. I want you all to know that she is doing very well day by day. She is in one of the best hospitals for neurosurgery in the west and getting excellent care; and also is improving beyond expectations by her own efforts.
Namdrol is not only my dearest friend & the most important person in my life, but she is also a friend to all the Dharma community. She has made a unique and special contribution to the Dharma in the West as a person with good heart, good intention and extreme focus on the vision and goals of Maitripa. There are still several critical challenges ahead of Namdrol in the upcoming days. I want to thank all of our friends, students and teachers around the world who are offering support of all kinds and doing prayers.
Sometimes we wonder why bad things happen to good people and that is a reasonable question. However due to this current hindrance that has arisen, I hope and pray that many obstacles may purify for Maitripa College and for our teachers and our lineage. I request all of you to keep this aspiration in your prayers and dedications.
