SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY THE JAPANESE EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI


March 11, 2011 - Vajra Vidya Institute, Sarnath


On hearing of the natural disaster which had struck Japan and threatened islands in the Pacific Ocean, Gyalwang Karmapa  called everyone together for special evening prayers in the main shrine room at Vajra Vidya Institute.  Several hundred monks, nuns and laypeople gathered at 7.30pm.  Relating the special prayers to his current Spring Teachings, Gyalwang Karmapa commented that his teachings had focused on how we could be of benefit to sentient beings. To join together in prayers for those who had suffered in this natural disaster was one way of benefitting beings.
