Please pray for me

Postby AlexanderS » Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:11 am

The last 6 years and the last 3 years especially has been a living hell for me. I've been very afflicted with chronic illness and severe chronic depression. I don't consider myself a dharma practioner, because I've never been able to start a proper practice and progress. I burden myself and I feel that I also burden my family. In august I'm going down to south germany to parcipate in a Phowa course. Please pray that I succesfully complete phowa, learn it and master it since I consider that being reborn in pure land dewachen is the only way I feel that I'll ever be able to be free of the sufferings of samsara.

So please pray for my health and happiness and that I'll will be able to learn and master this profound practice of Phowa.

Kindly regards Alex

Alexander,

Good luck on your phowa retreat. I sincerely hope you accomplish this practice to your heart's desire. Please also keep in mind all suffering sentient beings. It is very, very important to shape your Bodhisattvic motivation before engaging in any practice.

Best wishes.

I wouldn't say I feel better as the conditions for my misery is still present. But I'm happy I made the effort and I had a quite exotic experience which I don't have anyone to share with since I don't have a teacher.

May AlexanderS be well, happy, prosperous and peaceful. May he always be kind, generous and helpful. May all his difficulties be cleared. May the blessings of all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas rain down. May he accomplish the path of phowa. In the future may he be able to bring prosperity and liberation to all beings.

Keep practicing. May your experiences continue and get stronger and stronger. Keep remembering the conditions for your misery are only temporary. I know it's terrible, but keep practicing please. Attain the pure land and help all of us still suffering here! I'm really glad to read that you made the effort and have some amount of satisfaction for doing so. You may not yet have the close relationship with a teacher than you desire, but consider that you are now connected with a lineage, through whoever taught the phowa course - that teacher and all the teachers who taught them, all the way to Buddha. Keep going, with practice the right teacher relationship is bound to come to you. Peace and love. Om Amidewa Hri.
