Benefit for the dead

Postby kirtu » Fri Mar 05, 2010 4:49 am

Karma Chagme, from the namthar of Terton Migyur Dorje writes:

Like a calf following the mother cow
The merit of whatever virtues are accumulated for the sake of the dead
Will follow wherever the dead go
And will ripen upon the dead


Thus, through the power of dedication, the virtues are definitely obtained by the dead.
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
