    Dear Dr. Nge,

    How are you Sir?

    It is amazing to know your numerous achievements in the areas of teaching, promoting Buddhism and its related practises. Such acomplishments have given you such a high profile now, being awarded a Ph.D from one of the most prestigious universities in the world.

    I, however, think that you should revisit your writings here about your brief biography and please kindly re-correct it to truly reflect your academic and religous attributes as your way of English writing is not matching your true values. My apology if you feel offended because of my suggestion which you may probably think as “negative”.

    Thank you sir.
