Hurricane Sandy: Message from Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

Postby dakini_boi » Tue Oct 30, 2012 7:07 pm

In Rinpoche’s words:

“We are truly taking Hurricane Sandy seriously at Pema Osel Ling and I am requesting everyone to pray with us.
If we all make the same prayers together, wherever we are, then they will have more power.
Please do the following practices whenever you can during this time ---

Sa Chu Me Lung
Green Tara
Seven Line Prayer
Vajra Guru Mantra

Please make these prayers for the weather elements’ problems."

The prayers have also been posted on the website’s homepage (www.vajrayana.org) for easy access.

May we all respond to these requests and send metta/Maitri to all who are suffering and also to all who are helping out on the East coast.

The time for prayers is over.

I live in Northern New Jersey about 1 hour by car from NYC. I had several days of blackout from Hurricane Sandy. What needs to happen is people need to change their ways, not feel good by praying and do the same old. In the 30 years I have lived in this area, I have never noticed as many adverse weather events likely created by human activity due to global climate change as in the last 18 months. Too many people depend on complex technologies, public utilities to live and we need to transition to simpler solutions or eventually a big enough collapse will occur that will cause millions of heedless deaths. I live in the suburbs and for a time it took people five hours to get gasoline from the few gas stations that sill had power. The police were micro-managing every open gas station to direct traffic and prevent conflicts! This was just a category 1 hurricane, if it was category 2, things would have been much worse, maybe leading to total infrastructure collapse and thousands of deaths from the cold, violence and starvation. Alot of supermarkets had no power and threw out all their refrigerated and frozen stock.

People assume these complex systems will be there, and that will not be the case in the future as the ocean and atmospheric temperature rises and causes more adverse weather events. Praying is a distraction from what needs to be done, something that allows you to feel good without effort. Today/Wednesday and into Thursday we are gonna be battered by another Northeaster.
