Update on Phuntsok Rinpoche.
Phuntsok Rinpoche is currently in perfect health and not only is Rinpoche doing very well in his studies and daily practices, he is also very happy and energetic like usual.
Rinpoche is currently in a perfect environment to concentrate in his studies and practices. As for myself, after my daily routine of sending Rinpoche to and back from school, I engage in open deity yoga retreat sessions. The place where we are staying is indeed the perfect and conducive environment for me to serve guru with guru yoga practices as well as engaging in the intended retreats. As for my retreat boundaries, I abstain from any form of communication via emails / Facebook except for during break between each sets of retreat.
I sincerely apologize to those who have written to me but was unable to reply.
I would like to ensure to everyone who has requested my prayers during your difficult times and those who hope for prayers and spiritual help in future, even though I could not response to your emails promptly but my daily prayers are always with you. The sole purpose of continuing my retreats is for the long life, good health, prosperity and enlightenment of all noble beings and in particularly to those who needed my spiritual assistance.
With much prayers and happiness,Geshe Zopa :-)
Greetings and many Tashi Delek to everyone,
It has been a few months since I last read any emails and Facebook.
Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who sent me birthday wishes and prayers through Facebook and emails in the month of July. I would also like to thank dharma centers and individuals who have sent me invitations for the teaching tours in the coming years. To reply to those requests, I am pleased to inform you for year 2013 and the subsequent one or two years, I would not be able to travel for any teaching tours due to my extremely busy schedule attending to Phuntsok Rinpoche and continuing with my retreats. However, should there be any changes to my plans, I will be most happy to inform everyone.
With prayers,Geshe Zopa

Tashi Delek to all,
Over the past few months, I received many email messages with sincere prayers, well wishes for my retreats plus care and concern for my well being. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all these kind messages. I would also like to acknowledge and thank to all those centres and individuals who sent their kind invitation letters, offerings and emails to me for teaching tour. There were also enquiries about my retreats and coming days teaching plans and so on.
Hence I would like to reply to all with this short message;
As for my retreats, with the blessing of gurus, prayers and dedication from all and together with perfect retreat environment, I managed to complete all the retreats that I intended to do without any obstacle. I sincerely thank to those who had supported me for engaging in these wonderful retreats.
I dedicate all these retreats and little merits I may have accumulated specially for the long life and perfect health of our most respected guru Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, all noble beings, all dharma brothers and sisters whom I have known, swift return of unmistaken reincarnation of late Kyensur Rinpoche Lama Lundrup & peace and happiness of all livings beings. I also would like to dedicate this retreat especially for the peace and freedom of the Tibetan people.
One thing for sure, even though I managed to complete strict retreats physically but realization and wisdom remains empty ... "ZERO". :)) Nevertheless, I am extremely happy to be able to follow these little footsteps of my late Guru Geshe Lama Konchog. Such retreats are extremely important to complete within this life time.
For the coming few years, I plan to dedicate my full time as an attendant
and caretaker to little Tenzin Phuntsok Rinpoche. Help him to enhance his
general academic knowledge and practices till he goes to Sera University in a
few years. Until then I guess I may not be able to tour and teach in any
During my free time while taking care
of Phuntsok Rinpoche's daily needs, I will continue to do deity yoga retreats,
etc. In coming days, I would be quite busy as well as limited internet access.
Therefore, please excuse me for not being able to reply to individuals and
response to emails promptly.
I wish you all successful spiritual practice, realization on the stages
of path, lasting happiness and actualize all your virtue wishes instantly.
With much prayers,
Geshe Zopa :-D
