As everybody now knows a great disaster has befallen Nepal, the holy land that is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Thousands of people died in the earthquake of Saturday, April 25th; many more are injured and many made homeless. Great damage has been done to the holy places.
At this time I would like to take the opportunity to share the advice of my masters regarding beneficial prayers to be done.
HH Sakya Trizin has urged that the Dusum Sangye Guru Rinpoche and Sampa Lhundrupma prayers be offered. HH Karmapa has advised that the practice of Chenrezi and making lamp offerings should be done and Karma Thinley Rinpoche has stressed the great benefit of refuge prayers.
I am following this advice and also rejoice in all the practical help that is now being offered in the wake of this great tragedy.
