Lama Zopa Rinpoche entered hospital on Saturday 23rd April, now is the second day under observation. Yesterdays cat scan showed no bleeding or clot in the brain. There will be another scan to confirm that. Possibly Rinpoche will be able to leave the hospital tomorrow if doctors say ok.
Rinpoche’s right arm and leg have lost some use, speech is slurred making it difficult to understand him, but this part got a little better today.
Doctors say Rinpoche will need intensive therapy for His right side and speech … Hopefully to regain all or most use back. This can take several months but difficult to say.
Rinpoche’s tour in Australia and Indonesia as well as his return to Nepal will have to be cancelled.
This is the advice for practices that can be done, as advised by Khadro la and Choden Rinpoche:
1. Medicine Buddha puja … with extensive offerings.
2. 4 Mandala offering to Tara … as many as possible.
3. Most Secret Hayagriva mantra with below prayer as much as possible:
Supplication to the Deity Hayagriva:
Your pure triple faces are adorned with skull ornaments of five Buddha families
Six limbs are holding weapons in the mudra of accomplishing siddhis
In the aspect of great bliss with highly raised dignified horse head
I pay supplication to you the holy and powerful deity
