Here’s the text of an email recently sent by Ven Holly on behalf of Lama Zopa Rinpoche to the FPMT email group:
Please find updated practice advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche to control earthquakes and the four elements as well for protection from radiation.
Rinpoche said it is very good if these three short practices can be done time to time, in order to control dangers of earthquakes and the four elements, this is also beneficial for protection from radiation. In addition Rinpoche is advising specifically for protection from radiation:
1) Wear protections of White Umbrella Deity and Lion Faced Dakini (these need to be made correctly and blessed).
2) Wear White Umbrella Deity text (can be reduced in size and worn respectfully on the body, such as in a small pouch around your neck. Could also be put on microfilm and worm like an amulet. If the text is reduced the letters should still be clear). We are currently scanning and reducing this text that can be worn. This will be soon added to the advice page.
3) Take the initiation of White Umbrella.
4) White Umbrella Deity practice. (Note: Without empowerment, one cannot do self-generation, but instead can visualize Deity in front).
Rinpoche said you do not need to do all of these, but this is just to give an idea on practices that can help.
Please check the FPMT website for more advice from our precious teacher, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
