Recently I also heard Garchen Rinpoche talk about us now being in the age of disease. Quite frankly I thought things would go a bit slower and it would take a while for us to get to the age of diseas and then famine and and war.A recent urgent message from His Eminence Gangteng Tulku Rinpoche, which emphasizes why accumulating the Seven-Line Prayer is so necessary right now:
*Advice and Prophecy from Our Guru and Dharma Protector*
With Bhutan’s recent move to declare the country in lock-down and travel ban, Rinpoche also went into retreat. Despite that, Rinpoche specially set aside time yesterday to speak with the two Acharyas of Yeshe Khorlo Taiwan due to his care and concern for the students.
In the midst of the conversation, Rinpoche suddenly remarked, “The pandemic will be followed by a famine”. He also added that there have been many anomalies recently, all of which are unlucky signs. And, “Now, Bhutan also has all kinds of strange phenomena. For example, clouds in the sky are gathering from the North, South, East and West. Clouds of different colours can be seen entangled in the skies, swirling with strong forces of wind, as if fighting. Then, a storm would ensue, which had never happened before.”
So I asked Rinpoche, “It has been said that when a pandemic or famine occurs, it means that the beings in the celestial realm are in battle with the non-celestial forces. Should we then seek advice from the Dharma Protector on the practices we should undertake?”
Rinpoche replied that the Dharma Protector Zimar had manifested and advised, “The students of Rinpoche should undertake more practices of “Prayer to Guru Rinpoche" (Seven Line Prayer) and "Tsog", and to perform more recitations of the "Guru Mantra". And it was highlighted, “In this world of five turbidities, in addition to taking refuge in the Triple Jewels, Buddhist disciples should also pray to Guru Rinpoche as his blessings are real. The situation now is consistent with Guru Rinpoche’s past prophecies and his aspirations have now matured; thus beings should make sincere aspirations and prayers to the Triple Gems and Guru, and they will be liberated.
_The above is Acharya Sheng Yi’s (Dhonden) immediate transcript and translation (in Chinese), and requested for Rinpoche’s compassionate disclosure to all disciples. It is hoped that all students of Guru Rinpoche and Rinpoche from all over will practise diligently and remember this by heart._
