To all my dear disciples:
Today I became aware that I had completely run out of the 10,000 refuge cards that my disciples in Taiwan printed for me some four years ago! This means that I had the good fortune of giving refuge ordination to over 10,000 brothers and sisters since.
Now, I appeal to all those to whom I had given refuge ordination, and to all the others who had received teachings from me in the last four years to do something for me. I ask all of you to extend your love towards those who are undergoing tremendous pain, suffering, anguish and fear in the world. I then ask you to please recite green Tara mantra.
OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SVA HA
If you can, I ask each of you to recite the Tara mantra 500,000 times. If this is too much, will each of you please say at least 300,000 times?
I thank you very much, and I shall always keep you all in my humble prayers.
