Prayers for my Aunt Gail

Post by Sennin » Sun Sep 17, 2017 4:48 pm

My Aunt Gail passed away yesterday after a battle with breast cancer.
I am not really quite sure what to do as a practitioner except do Shitro.
So I am doing Shitro practice for my Aunt, but if anyone can do any additional practices or know a way to connect her to the dharma in some way, I beg of you to please do.

Thus, there is not a single one who has entered into this teaching who fails to attain buddhahood.

My condolences.
Buddhahood in This Life
འ༔ ཨ༔ ཧ༔ ཤ༔ ས༔ མ༔


[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

-- Samadhirāja Sūtra

May Aunt Gail quickly be reborn in the Pure Lands. As noted Shitro is perfect.

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

Sorry for your loss, she looks like a wonderful woman. She is lucky to have as filial nephew as you.
