Safety during bad weather

Post by dyanaprajna2011 » Sun Mar 24, 2013 12:59 pm

Please keep me, my family, and all people of the Midwest US in your prayers and thoughts today and tomorrow, as a severe late-season snowstorm barrels across the region. This looks like it's going to be a bad one, with alot of heavy snow, power outages, and who knows what else.

I dont know wich one would be the proper Buddha or Bodhisattva to pray on your situation, but I will pray to Medicine Buddha.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and prayers. The storm turned out to not be as bad as it could have been.
