My friend is dying

Postby catmoon » Fri Apr 15, 2011 10:46 pm

A friend of mine is scheduled for MRI scans to find a suspected brain tumour. She is only 23 and has an 18 month old son.

I took a Medicine Buddha empowerment. Is there anything else I can do besides pujas?

If you have a connection with FPMT or any large or small monastery, ask the monastics to pray and do a puja for your friend.
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

Ah, Will, what a good idea! I do have some such connections.

Catmoon,

I'm really sorry to hear about your friend. Here are some more resources for commissioning pujas on her behalf. The first link is connected to the Ven. Dodrupchen's monastery in Sikkim, and the second is connected to the monastery and nunnery of my root lamas, the late Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and his brother Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, in Sarnath. Lastly, there's a link to the animal release practices also conducted by the Sangha of the Ven. Khenpo Rinpoches (Paypal link at the bottom. $25 buys 100 fish). May this be of some benefit.

What happened with the scan? What did they find?
If you want to you can do the animal release yourself (together with your friend), the links for a couple of practices are here viewtopic.php?f=50&t=3697#p33113 and I can send you an electronic version of the Jamgon Kongtrul text if you wish.

Yes a very excellent choice!!! Please this will definitely pro-long life and cure a disease. Try crickets for their lives are in immediate danger of being eaten by other animals.

Well it seems she's not going to die just yet. The feared brain tumour turned out to be old, benign, and unchanging. But her blood tests are still showing cancer markers and they are still poking around.

The most valuable thing you could do is to explain her the idea behind Phowa and then inspire her to attend a Phowa teaching.
Unless she is a practitioner already, a year from now or 100 years from now the death will happen anyway.
At least she could do Phowa at that moment.
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it,
unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

I remember Namdrol once saying that Green Tara practices are beneficial for those who have cancer. Maybe it could be good for tumours, too?

So some pujas have been done, some prayers and mantras recited, and my friend seems to be no longer dying. In fact she is looking tanned, fit and is working at a fruit stand. She has has not even mentioned medical difficulties for quite some time.

Isn't that interesting.
