Ironically, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Losang Jampa was admitted to the hospital for testing the same day that Lama Zopa Ripoche suffered a stroke. Please say prayers for Rinpoche’s recovery and honor him by practicing the holy Dharma which he so patiently teaches us.
April 23rd email from Khensur Rinpoche’s Center, DNKL, follows:
We are writing to ask you to please do Medicine Buddha prayers as well as long-life prayers for our lama, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche who is currently recovering from illness.
The short version of Rinpoche’s Long Life Prayer is:
To bring blessings of enlightened activities to fortunate disciples
And to spread the textual and inner realization teachings of the
Buddha who embodies the ten powers,
You show the light of logic, in teachings to intelligent minds,
I pray to the spiritual friend, the revealer of the path, please firmly remain!
This prayer can be found in Tibetan on the DNKL website at http://dnkldharma.org/about/khensur.html#LongLife
The Medicine Buddha Mantra is
TADYATA OM BHEKHANDZYE BHEKHANDZYE
MAHA BHEKHANDZYE (BHEKHANDZYE) RAJA SAMUDGATE SVAHA
In addition to praying for Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche, please pray for the good health and long lives of all of our teachers and fellow beings.
With Blessings to all beings,
