Ani Karma Tsultrim invites the Bodhicharya Community and connected Sangha members to join a practice for Rinpoche’s health and long life:
Our beloved Root-Guru and Teacher Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is now in his 60th year of this life. He offered all his strength and effort for the Dharma, for the benefit of sentient beings, for the wellbeing of his students, and for guiding his practitioners on the path to liberation.
It is most important and the deep heartfelt wish of all of us, that Rinpoche’s health will be stable and that he will be able to continue these tasks also in the future for a long, long time.
Therefore, when I was in Sikkim with Rinpoche just end of October and begin of November, I offered him to do practice for his health, his long life, and to prevent obstacles. I also promised to ask the Bodhicharya Community and the connected Sangha members to join this practice.
So it is my wish to start this practice for Rinpoche today on fullmoon in November, an auspicious day for meditation, purification, and offering.
I invite all of you to do this together by contributing a regular daily or, if your time is limited, at least weekly practice and offer the merit and benefit to Rinpoche’s life and good health. You can count the Mantras, if you like. But most important is a wholehearted and devotional mental attitude during the practice.
Written by Ani Karma Tsultrim, 10th November 2011, on Fullmoon
The recommended practices are Amitayus for long life and balancing the 5 elements, White Tara for long life and deathlessness, Medicine Buddha for health and strength, Vajrakilaya for removing obstacles and Green Tara for protecting Rinpoche’s travels.
