Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised a few things that need to be done as soon as possible in order to pacify a devastating and catastrophic earthquake from happening in California next year. These things need to be completed before February 2016.
All the Bay Area FPMT centers are working together to complete these efforts. But we need your help as well!
Take a look here at what we have organized at Land of Medicine Buddha. Please join us as much as you can!
Reading Tengyur x 4
By monks from Sera Je Monastery. If we are able to get this done, then we only need to accumulate 1 million mantras.
Ksitigarbha Long Mantra Recitation
Accumulate 1.8 million of the long mantra. People from all over the world can participate in this and contribute your numbers of mantras recited, and dedicate the merit to the pacification of earthquakes in California, Nepal and all over the world and all the universe.
Eight Mahayana precepts – 300 times
Please motivate not just for the pacification of the earthquake but to free all sentient beings from oceans of samsaric suffering, to bring the numberless sentient beings from each realm to full enlightenmenT. To do this, you need to achieve enlightenment. Therefore you need to collect extensive merits, in order to have all the realizations on the path to enlightenment. Therefore you are going to take the precepts. And take the precepts not only for the earthquake in California but for all earthquakes in the world.
Extensive Medicine Buddha Puja – ongoing
Do this practice every five weeks.
“Practices to Control Earthquake” – monthly
This is done monthly at the Ocean of Compassion Buddhist Center in Campbell. Please check here for the dates.
Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche says that the dedication for all the above practices should be for pacification of earthquakes in California, Nepal and worldwide as well as the normal FPMT dedications (in the FPMT Prayer Book).
