I have seen intelligence reports that the Peoples' Liberation Army began operations at precisely 8:10 a.m. From an astrological perspective, this was an interesting choice of day and hour.
So, today, we begin the year that marks a complete cycle of time. May it be auspicious.
"An enemy repaying your good with bad makes you progress in your practice.
His unjust accusations are a whip that steers you toward virtue.
He's the teacher who destroys all your attachment and desires.
Look at his great kindness that you never can repay!"
