I do not know if you are receiving my letters, but I will keep writing to you as you are always in my mind… We have made an altar to father. We try to keep up our traditions so that we can look forward to the day we can return to our country, although we do not know when that will be. Here we are materially well off, but spiritually deprived. We miss our country. Most of all we miss you. Should Buddha exist, we should keep praying to be reunited. Dear Mother, keep up your mind. Pray to Buddha silently. We will have a future, and i hope it will be soon.
