Fire Suppression Sadhanas?

Post by Nicholas Weeks » Tue Aug 07, 2018 4:32 pm

All over the West USA fire danger is growing. When people are in mortal danger is there any practice that can turn aside or stop a big fire?

City of 10 Thousand Buddhas, in Talmage California is in such peril right now.

From the Effortless Accomplishment of Wishes

SA CHU ME LUNG JUNG WEY BAR CHEY KYI/
When fearful times come and there is danger for the illusory body

GYU LUS NYEN CHING JIG PEY DU JUNG TSE
because of obstacles of the elements of earth, water, fire and air;

YID NI THE TSOM MEY PAR SOL WA DEB
by offering a supplication without second thoughts or doubt

ORGYEN JUNG WA ZHI YI LHA MOR CHEY
to Padmasambhava with the goddesses of the four elements

JUNG WA RANG SAR ZHI WAR THE TSOM MEY
without doubt the elements will be naturally pacified:

ORGYEN PADMA JUNG NEY LA SOL WA DEB
I supplicate Padmasambhava of Oddiyāna

SAM PA LHUN GYI DRUB PAR JIN GYI LOB
bless us that our wishes be effortlessly accomplished!

[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

All good & powerful suggestions, thanks to all!

One of Lama Zopa's is the short Kshitigarbha mantra. But what means "Thaleng"?

OM AH KSHITI GARBHA THALENG HUM
