On February 15 Nalanda Monastery, France, officially completed its first five year residential Basic Program (BP) with a graduation ceremony. Geshe Jamphel, BP teacher and abbot, handed out BP completion certificates to the graduates (two of them were not there), and BP completion cards to students who did not yet graduate. The ceremony was an inspiration for the 36 brand new students of Nalanda’s second Basic Program, who attended as part of their introduction day. A special presentation was made to Ven. Tharchin, the program’s interpreter and Ven. Yonten, the program’s coordinator, reflecting appreciation for their contributions that made this excellent BP, with its three month review and three month retreat, such a success! Geshe-la then gave a talk to the 36 new students and all Nalanda residents, emphasizing the work that the BP students had done over the five years. The ceremony was followed by a big celebratory lunch. Two of these graduates are now FPMT registered teachers!

|FPMT is unbelievably fortunate that we have many qualified teachers who are not only scholars but are living in practice. If you look, then you can understand how fortunate we are having the opportunity to study. With our Dharma knowledge and practice we can give the light of Dharma to others, in their heart. I think that’s the best service to sentient beings, the best service to the world.|

|Without understanding how your inner nature evolves, how can you possibly discover eternal happiness? Where is eternal happiness? It’s not in the sky or in the jungle; you won’t find it in the air or under the ground. Everlasting happiness is within you, within your psyche, your consciousness, your mind. That’s why it’s important that you investigate the nature of your own mind.|

Statements of Appreciation
A few days ago I completed a year of retreats….at two FPMT centres (though I have visited and am very familiar with several others). The staff of the two centres could not have been kinder and more supportive. It is especially through appreciating their cultures of care and support for retreatants that I have renewed my admiration for the FPMT, and thereby for your [Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s] extraordinary holy activity for sentient beings. I have reflected on how marvelous it is in the world of suffering, war, depression, social dissatisfaction and spiritual denial, to have these oases of perfection, the FPMT centers. Moreover I have witnessed some unfortunate, unethical activities in other Buddhist organizations that make one feel so sad. Also the FPMT is generating study in the tradition of Je Rinpoche and yogic practice leading to enlightenment in a unique way. Compared to other organizations, the FPMT shines with virtue and a deep harmony. Of course there are superficial problems that come and go within FPMT – this is only to be expected – but I recognize that these are insignificant compared with the tremendous benefits to all beings generated through FPMT activities.
