I would like the students to self-cultivate every aspect and spend this time and good occasion to study best.  You have a good chance to study Dhamma both pariyati and paṭipatti while others don’t have.  I would like you to spread Buddhism both in Thailand and oversea.  Please know that you are important and the world is waiting for you.  You are Crystal Dhamma Warriors who bring peace and happiness to the world.”
