In the Buddha's time, there was a person named Vimalakirti. He was a layperson, a lay disciple of the Buddha. But his wisdom was so high, He was a great bodhisattva. Many people were delivered because of him, liberated because of him. Sometimes the bodhisattvas are not born to be monks. But to be a layperson, so that... It's doing a different job. Like Quan Yin Bodhisattva, She/He manifested in different appearances, sometimes as a princess, things like that, for different affinity with beings on this planet. So you laypeople also don't feel despair. Just different choices. If you have an enlightened way, a method, then you will also reach the high level. Depends on sincerity. I'm reading you of a layperson who made an offering of an ashram to the Buddha. I love all of you. And you can always count on me in any time of need, all the time, all the time, 24/7. All your life, and the next life, and the next life, I will always be with you. It doesn't matter who and what level you are.
