Chanting Tara mantra helpful in containing the spread of epidemics like Coronavirus: His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Chinese devotees

Dharamshala: A group of Chinese Buddhists and devout followers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from mainland China sought His Holiness’ spiritual advice on ways to contain the spread of Coronavirus, a recently discovered airborne disease which has gripped national attention as well as globally after it spread rapidly across China and to other parts of the world.

In response, His Holiness told them that chanting Tara mantra as much as possible could help contain the spread of the epidemic. His Holiness has also shared a voice clip of his esteemed self chanting the Tara mantra. Listen to the audio here: However, His Holiness’ advice is based on the Buddhist traditional beliefs and is aimed at Buddhist believers only.

Regarding this health crisis, Kalon Ven Karma Gelek Yuthok, Department of Religion and Culture, CTA responded to the press at the Republic day celebrations at CTA headquarters, wherein he expressed his condolences for those who had died from the disease while hoping for “the Chinese people and government’s ability in controlling it soon”.

He cited the “reported link between the large scale-wildlife trade in China and the rise of the epidemic” and “the necessity to study the underlying causes of this health crisis” while wishing the Chinese speedy resolution to the crisis.

WHO has just declared a global health emergency.
So far most cases are still from China. However, as the WHO official said, the "greatest concern is the potential for the virus to spread to countries with weaker health systems, and which are ill-prepared to deal with it.”
