Prayers for Nepal
In response to the devastating earthquake that ravaged Nepal recently, this Sunday’s session will be devoted to helping those who are suffering from loss of loved ones and those who are without basic necessities like shelter, food and water. Material generosity is needed and so beneficial, but our beneficial prayers and practice make a difference, too. Especially, the similar combined power of group practice multiplies the merit of our good intentions.
This Sunday evening’s practice will focus on The Great Peace Prayer of Buddha and on reciting several healing and blessing mantras.
Where: The Yoga Center
When: Sunday May 3, 7:00-8:00 pm
Suggested donation: $5-15 or more. Donations for this practice will go to ‘Precious Loving Compassion for the People of Nepal’, a way to give focused relief, especially to those in remote areas.
Geydak Rinpoche is there, bringing supplies to remote areas in Nepal that have been severely impacted by the earthquake and are inaccessible by roads. We are raising money to help in this desperate situation. Please compassionately contribute with your resources, love, and prayers!
