Unfortunately, with all the political BS, corruption, and local stupidity on continuing to burn the Amazon, please join in prayer against this mass deforestation. Let us wish for the fixture of this and a healthy Earth.

Also, it happens to be Ksitigarbha's Day according to the Chinese Mahayana calendar (29th day), so please, if you can, practice that as well as he is the bodhisattva associated with the Earth!

From FB page of Lama Zopa Rinpoche
{{ Lama Zopa Rinpoche ~nPrayer and visualization for all the fires, especially happening in Brazil right now: 圖敦喇嘛梭巴仁波切 ~ 祈求並觀想徹底止息災害, 尤其是在巴西的森林火災 }}

Rinpoche gave this advice during the initiation in San Francisco on Sunday. Rinpoche said visualize His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who is in reality 1000 armed Chenrezig, above the fires, nectar comes from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, one with Chenrezig, like water flowing. Think it completely covers all the fires with a very wide flow of nectar, even bigger than Niagara Falls. Think that the nectar is extinguishing all the fires. This is what you visualize as you chant Chenrezig Buddha mantra: Om Mani Padme Hum.

Also, think that a shower of nectar, huge, like a waterfall, is flowing and purifying all sentient beings’ defilements, negative karma, sickness, and spirit harm. Especially all those who have been hurt or died in the fires, all the insects and animals and all beings. Then think that all sentient beings are completely purified.

At the end, make prayers that all sentient beings can generate all the realizations, the root: guru devotion, the three principal paths, renunciation, bodhicitta, and emptiness, as well as the two stages. Then make prayers to generate loving kindness and compassion in everyone’s hearts and to purify all the negative karma, which is the ultimate cause of the fires.
A boat delivers you to the other riverbank.
A needle stitches up your clothes.
A horse takes you where you want to go.
Bodhicitta will bring you to Buddhahood.
~ Khunu Lama Rinpoche

Even non-buddhists have many virtuous accomplishments
~ Jigten Sumgon

May all the people on earth wise up to realize that environment & daily livelihood is much more important than economic prosperity.
As money is totally worthless if the world is destroyed with unlivable conditions, such as: oxygen-deprivation, less pollution absorbent, more famine, droughts or floods, that all could arise from massive deforestation.

Although I very much dislikes how so many Wealthier-country governments (from Europe and North-America/etc) are just outright offering millions of $$ directly to put out the amazon fires without much accountability.
IMO, this is just more proof of the misuse of taxpayers funds and gross wealth inequality, and I prefer these countries donate firefighters & firetrucks & fire extinguishing equipment instead of money.

Anyways, I shall also pray that may the Amazon forest fires be quickly extinguished; and may the vegetation be re-planted and regrown to replace the greenery that was lost to the massive fires.

Namo Shakyamuni Buddha; Namo Amitbha Buddha; Namo all Buddhas from all directions.
