"More than 60 dead in Burmese, Thai quake"
More than 60 people are confirmed dead and another 90 injured after a strong earthquake struck near the border of Thailand and Burma on Thursday night.

Most of those killed were in a town near the epicentre of the 6.8-magnitude quake on the Burmese side of the border.

Local officials say five monasteries and many other buildings collapsed in the town of Tarlay. ...

May they all be free from their suffering !!! :buddha1:
Abandoning Dharma is, in the final analysis, disparaging the Hinayana because of the Mahayana; favoring the Hinayana on account of the Mahayana; playing off sutra against tantra; playing off the four classes of the tantras against each other; favoring one of the Tibetan schools—the Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, or Nyingma—and disparaging the rest; and so on. In other words, we abandon Dharma any time we favor our own tenets and disparage the rest.

According to the advice of the late Kunzang Dechen Lingpa, when natural disasters occur, the following verse of Sampa Lhundrupma should be recited:

ས་ཆུ་མེ་རླུང་འབྱུངབའི་བར་ཆད་ཀྱིས༔ སྒྱུ་ལུས་ཉེན་ཅིང་འཇིག་པའི་དུས་བྱུང་ཚེ༔
ཡིད་གཉིས་ཐེ་ཚོམ་མེད་པར་གསོལ་བ་འདེབས༔ འོ་རྒྱན་འབྱུང་བ་བཞི་ཡི་ལྷ་མོ་བཅས༔
འབྱུང་བ་རང་སར་ཞི་བར་ཐེ་ཚམ་མེད༔ ཨོ་རྒྱན་པདྨ་འབྱུང་གནས་ལ་གསོལ་བ་འདེབས༔
བསམ་པ་ལྷུན་གྱིས་འགྲུབ་པར་བྱིན་གྱིས་རློབས༔


SA CHU ME LUNG JUNG WEY BAR CHEY KYI/
When the illusory body is endangered and a time of destruction occurs

GYU LUS NYEN CHING JIG PEY DU JUNG TSE
by obstacles of the elements of earth, water, fire and air;

YID NI THE TSOM MEY PAR SOL WA DEB
by offering a supplication without hestitation or doubt

ORGYEN JUNG WA ZHI YI LHA MOR CHEY
to Padmasambhava with the goddesses of the four elements

JUNG WA RANG SAR ZHI WAR THE TSOM MEY
without doubt the elements will be naturally pacified.

ORGYEN PADMA JUNG NEY LA SOL WA DEB
I supplicate Padmasambhava of Oddiyāna,

SAM PA LHUN GYI DRUB PAR JIN GYI LOB
bless us that our wishes be effortlessly accomplished!
