Dalai Lama and Khensure Rinpoche Lobsang Jamyang have advised everyone to continue to pray (at home) to Green Tara and Medicine Buddha or recite Green Tara’s mantra as many times as possible for yourself,for your families, and most of all, for all of the sentient beings who are currently suffering whether it is due to the Coronavirus, other diseases, or facing any other difficulties in life. We all pray that everyone that is affected by this will have a swift recovery from the illness caused by Coronavirus and that everyone will be able to overcome any difficulties in life or obstacles on our dharma paths.

Green Tara’s mantra: 

Om Tare’ Tutare’ Ture’ Soha   (as many times as possible)

Medicine Buddha’s mantra:

Tayatha Om Be’kadza Be’kadza Maha Be’kadza Be’kadza Ra Dza Sa Mou Ga Te’ Soha.

Dear Geden Shoeling students and all dharma friends,  

According to Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jamyang's advice from Canada, due to the outbreak of the new corona virus that is currently infected many thousands of people around world. Almost all mother sentient beings are suffering from some type of afflictions either caused by illness, diseases, plagques, natural calamity, even warfare or are facing various personal difficulties in life such as loosing a loved one or enduring financial hardship..etc..

Khensure Rinpoche has advised that we should all pray for the relief of all sufferings for our mother sentients from all six Realms, especially  for all the victims of the Corona Virus around the world specifically, as well as all the victims of the wild-fire in Australia and all the victims of all the recent natural disasters such as floods, landslides, volcanoes, earthquakes in general.

 

Khensure Rinpoche has further advised that all of us should together pray to Tara for all sentient mother beings (including all the formless beings) in the six realms to be immediately relieved from any sufferings and that all the victimes be able to escape all types of plague, epidemics and/or natural disasters ... This prayer is especially helpful for those who are currently ill or in difficult situations.

Saka Dawa (also known as Saga Dawa) (ས་ག་ཟླ་བ།) represents the holiest and most sacred days in Tibetan Buddhism.  Falling on the fourth month of the Tibetan Calendar, the religious festivities of Saka Dawa peak on the 15th Lunar Day when there is a full moon. This day is associated with three major events in the life of Shakyamuni Buddha – his birth, his enlightenment on a full moon night, and his parinirvana.

 

This year, Saka Dawa will begin from 06/04/2019 to 07/02/2019.  Lama Norbu Geshela said that the effects of positive and negative actions will be multiplied thousands of times.  Please perform as many virtuous actions as possible, and avoid doing non-virtuous actions.  If possible, please avoid eating meat for the entire month.  If not possible, please avoid eating meat in the first half of the month.  If it is not even possible, please avoid eating meat on Mon 06/17/2019 which is the most important day of the month.

 

We are planning to set up an altar table on Tuesday 06/04/2019. If you have time, please stop by to conduct Water Offering to accumulate merit.  In addition, we may have Fish Release.  Date and location will be announced later.

We will be holding a special prayer this Saturday and Sunday. We will be having a special prayer for Je Tsongkhapa and Je Jamchen Choeje Yeshi.

Tsongkhapa Day is the celebration of the parinirvana or the enlightenment of the great Lama Tsongkhapa, whose birth and enlightent activity was prophesized by the Buddha himself.  Je Tsongkhapa, the founder of Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism, an emanation of Manjushri, passed away on the 25th day of the 10th Tibetan month in the year 1419.

Je Jamchen Choeje Yeshi, the founder of Sera Monastery and one of the main disciples of Tsongkhapa, passed away on the 24th day of the same month in the year 1443(Sera Mey Monastery).

Geshe la mentioned that we will be holding the prayer at an earlier date than the actual date because many people are very occupied due to the holidays. He emphasized on how participants can gain many benefits by practicing this prayer.

By participating in this prayer, there are a few benefits: Purification of negative kharma, revival of broken commitments, accumulation of vast amount of merit

 

This week, the schedule at Geden Shoeling Buddhist Center is as followed:

 

We will have special candle offerings with the special assembly prayer

This year, Saka Dawa, the 4th month of the Tibetan calendar, which commemorates the special events of the Buddha, is from 05/19/2015 to 6/16/2015.  It is said that positive and negative deeds that we create are multiplied thousands of times.  In order to accumulate as much merits as possible, there will be many events happening at our center.  Geshe Norbu has mentioned that it is good if we avoid eating meat this whole month.  If it is not possible, please try to avoid meat the first half of the month (5/19-06/02).  If it is not even possible, please avoid eating meat on Tuesday 6/2/2015, which is Saka Dawa day.

- Awalokiteshvara Mantra Recitation:  Under the guidance of the Department of Religion and Culture, Tibetan Government in Exile, Dharamsala, in India, our center will conduct many Mantra Recitation sessions during the Saka Dawa month.  The purpose is for the collection of merits for both selves and sentient beings, for the protection of Dharma, and for dedication to the Long Life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  We will submit the rosary counts both individually at home and at prayer sessions at the end of this month.  Please keep tract and inform us your rosary counts.
