Due to the collective karma of beings of this degenerate age, the world is facing unprecedented and ever-increasing challenges like pandemics, famine, warfare and all other types of difficulties. At such a time when the true colours of the age of five degeneration manifest ever more and more, the only antidote to this global crisis is to respect and follow the law of cause and effect by taking responsibilities of our actions and also to invoke the blessings and compassion of the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
Especially, as Mipham Rinpoche succinctly puts,
“When the adversities of the age of degeneration loom like darkness,
The enlightened activities of the Lotus-born Lord of Victorious Ones shine forth like the moon”.
The past master and the treasure teachings declare that in these difficult times when the five degeneration increases manifold, the blessings and compassion of Guru Rinpoche surpasses that of all other buddhas. Particularly when the whole world is gripped with the looming fear and harms of the pandemic caused by Covid-19 virus, we need to leave no stones unturned to overcome this. On the one hand, the health professionals including doctors, nurses and paramedics are selflessly working round the clock to treat patients infected with this deadly virus. They are also providing us advice on health and hygiene, social distancing and other measures to prevent this epidemic.
On the other hand, being Dharma practitioners, we should do our bit by engaging in the recitation of Vajra Guru Mantra with great faith and devotion to Guru Rinpoche.
Keeping in view of the aforementioned purposes, the community members of Pema Dëjo Ling at Nubri, Nepal, gather every year to accumulate 10 million Vajra Guru Mantra. However, this year we are unable gather physically due to the lockdown and social distancing being observed everywhere. So, as an alternative, Pema Dëjo Ling Dharma Centre based in Taiwan and Malaysia would like to organize online recitation campaign of accumulating 10 million Vajra Guru Mantra by encouraging and calling upon our Dharma brothers and sisters worldwide to join this noble movement.
The purpose would be to pray for all those who are affected by the pandemic so that all of them be cured and also for the pandemic to end as soon as possible so that the world will once again experience peace and happiness. The prayer will also be directed to those who have passed away due to the infection so that they be free from confusion in their bardo states and swiftly achieve enlightenment.
Employing the three perfections of the right motivation of Bodhichitta at the beginning, the right focus in the middle and the right dedication at the conclusion, let us all join hands, both ordained and lay practitioners throughout the world in this virtuous movement so that our purposes will be fulfilled.
