Praxis für Tibet und
die schnelle Erfüllung
der Wünsche Seiner Heiligkeit
"An diesem Tag - Buddhas Geburt, Erleuchtung und Eingehen ins Parinirvana - habe ich gefühlt, dass wir etwas für Tibet tun sollten, etwas, das zur schnellen Erfüllung der Wünsche von Seiner Heiligkeit beiträgt, ohne dass sie viel Zeit brauchen. Etwas, das große Veränderung in China, im Bewusstsein der Regierungsmitglieder und derjenigen, die die Politik bestimmen, bewirkt. Etwas für den Frieden von Tibet oder dem Ansatz des Mittelweges, was immer besser ist."

Lama Zopa Rinpoche made this request on Saka Dawa, and it was sent out on June 15 2018
“This day—the day of Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and passing away into parinirvana—I felt we should do something for Tibet, something to help His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s holy wishes succeed quickly, without taking much time. Something to bring about great change in mainland China, in the minds of the members of the government and those who control the politics there. Something for the freedom of Tibet or the freedom of the middle way approach, whatever is best.
According to my Mickey Mouse observations, what comes out best are:
50,000 recitations of the Mantra Promised by Tara and
500 Four Mandala Offering to Tara pujas.
These should be done by all the FPMT centers, projects and services with bodhicitta motivation and strong devotion to His Holiness, as an offering of service to him in the fulfillment of his wishes, thinking as follows:
“May the Beijing government change its mind regarding His Holiness and Tibet, may the Chinese politicians see that His Holiness is Chenrezig and become totally devoted to him and do exactly as he wishes. May they invite His Holiness to Tibet with total devotion and appreciation so that billions of people can see his holy face, receive teachings and enjoy the unbelievable happiness of meeting His Holiness and the Dharma. May there be the total freedom of the middle way approach for the Tibetan people inside and outside of Tibet.
“Then, by the spread of the stainless Dharma in this way, may there be more buddhas and bodhisattvas than there ever were when Tibet was free, so that Buddhadharma encompasses the whole world, lasts a long time, spreads throughout the ten directions and more sentient beings meet and practice Dharma, thereby quickly reaching enlightenment.”
The longer it takes for Tibet to be free, the more people become frustrated and unhappy. They can’t wait any longer, they can’t stand the situation, so they self-immolate. That is all they can think to do. So, the longer it takes, the more people burn.
In the Mantra Promised by Tara there is a place where you put in a name or wish, so there you can say: “For the Beijing government to change its mind and give total freedom to Tibet and for there to be more buddhas and bodhisattvas than ever before.”
It would be very, very good for us in the FPMT to do this. This is something we can do. In the past we have offered many long life pujas to His Holiness but we ourselves haven’t done one lately. We’ve done some along with other monasteries and traditions but we haven’t done one by ourselves. So I was thinking the whole of the FPMT should come together to offer His Holiness an elaborate long life puja, offering an actual live elephant with great decorations, with students dressed up as a king, a minister, a princess and so forth, perhaps in Bodhgaya or Kushinagar.
This is time for us to do something, to hurry the process along.
