To OB Oryang, to Rick Smith and all the other Dhamma warriors of 2006,

Today, I was watching television i The Netherlands and there it was: Vipassana meditation in your Correctional Facility. I was very much impressed about what Edward Johnson and Rick Smith achieved and all the other men in 2006 and the first time as well.
I do hope that policy in your facility continues to allow you to do vipassana as it contributes to a so much better humaner inner life.
I am glad, as a christian myself, that it has been acknowleged that vipassana is not a religion, but as a matter of fact paves the way for religion, christian religion also.
I wil pray for all of you and hope you will continue to meet one another as brothers.
Please give this mail to each of them and send them my love.
