Prayer Request for Lama Zopa Rinpoche's Recovery

Postby zerwe » Sat Apr 23, 2011 3:28 pm

I just received word that Lama Zopa Rinpoche has suffered a stroke and is in the Hospital recovering. It sounds like he is doing well and is doing his practices in his bed.
Many centers will be holding Medicine Buddha Pujas.
It is recommended students do Medicine Buddha practice with offerings and strong dedications to Lama's long Life, as well as, the recitations of long life mantras of White Tara and Amitayus.
Everyone please keep Lama Zopa in your thoughts and prayers.

Short Long Life Prayer for Lama Zopa Rinpoche composed by Ven. Choden Rinpoche
Thub tsul chang shing jam gön gyäl wäi ten
Dzin kyong pel wä kün zö dog por dzä
Chog sum kur wäi leg mön thu drub pa
Dag sog dul jäi gön du shab ten shog

You who uphold the Subduer's (thub) moral way;
Who serve as the bountiful bearer (zö)-of-all,
Sustaining, preserving and spreading Manjunath's victorious doctrine (ten);
Who masterfully accomplish (drub pa) magnificent prayers honoring the Three Jewels,
Protector of myself and others, your disciples: please, please live long!

would be ok to do MB pujas for Lama Zopa? someone once said something about not doing such things for teachers because they can do far better for themselves, and it sort of insults their abilities.

This is certainly good news.

Dear Friends,

"Lama Zopa Rinpoche has been discharged from the hospital and is now resting comfortably in a private home nearby the hospital. Rinpoche is now an outpatient at the hospital and will going to the hospital 3 times a week for physio.

At Rinpoche's request we have researched Doctors of Chinese medicine. From many names Rinpoche chose one and on consultation with the doctor will start treatment very soon. Both the western and Chinese treatment will be compatible, no conflict .

At "home" Rinpoche is very comfortable and relaxed and I think feeling much more at ease. Khadro la will be arriving soon and will be helping Rinpoche over the next few weeks.

Again many thanks for all the support and prayers by so many.

Thank you

roger"
