Spiritual Advice from the Masters Regarding the Coronavirus
Konchok Tenzin Kunzang Thinley Lhundup, better known as Gyalwa Drikungpa, on the 16th day
of the first Tibetan month of the Iron Mouse, Escondido, CA USA (His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche).
"All Drikung Kagyu monasteries, centers, monastic and Lay disciples, as outbreaks of coronoviruses (COVID-19) are spreading worldwide, I have this opportunity to ask all Drikung Kagyu monasteries, centers, and more. To practice disciples daily and recite their mantra on daily basis. Dakini Paranaswari is the supreme mother of all Buddhas. She appears in this form to pacify diseases. Some time ago, I released the mini-Sadhana of Dakini Parnashwari. Today, I want to share with you through this new creation of Dakini Paranaswari from the
collection of Kabopa Jigton Sumgan. Even the verses in this work are quotes of his writings. If you want to know more about the Kalash Sadhana of Dakini Paranashwari, you can also search in the collection of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgan. I request that this Sadhana be translated into as many languages as possible so that it can spread far and wide. This practice requires everyone to practice with love and compassion. I pray that this practice will quickly overcome all the negative deeds and obstacles of both the deceased and the
living and will quickly establish them in enlightenment."
Following Holiness' advice, the practice text and image of Parnashavari, Vanquisher of Disease, is available for personal practice in our Library.
We are also sharing sessions of many practices online with all friends and community members via Zoom.

From Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche:
'Hello all Dharma friends, I know these days we have a critical time and not just only with few people but everywhere, all over the world. There are some places that are better than others, but we should try our best to cope with it because you see, there is no other choice, except we have to accept that, and then take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha as a Buddhist, and then, just see that this is the nature of samsara and develop such powerful loving compassion to everybody all over the world, including those people who are well, in such a critical time. And then, just you
rejoice yourself as you have the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha and practice of the Bodhicitta, as well as also please reflect on everything is illusory nature. Of course, it is not easy, but you try. That is our practice you see --- practice of bodhicitta, illusory nature, their come and go, and just meditate that this will be over because it is impermanent, so it is a matter of time. So please do these things and most important as i have mentioned develop love and compassion to all sentient beings everywhere and there are some people who are more panic than others you know. So
look at these. So don't take this personally, just generalise everybody in the world that they are going through this and just we appreciate ourselves, "I have the Buddha Dharma in my life, I have come from many lifetimes, so this life is just very short. So don't be too attached so much to ourselves, rather develop such a concern for others. Just say, I am not the only one, everybody is there. Meditate that.
Ok, thank you. Please take care.'
