Please pray for sister

Post by kirtu » Thu May 02, 2013 11:16 pm

I discovered today that my youngest sister, Kimberly Bishop Yates, died on Saturday 27 April. Please pray for her to be reborn in the Pure Lands.



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

"Men must want to do things out of their own innermost drives. People, not commercial organizations or chains of command, are what make great civilizations work. Every civilization depends upon the quality of the individuals it produces. If you over-organize humans, over-legalize them, suppress their urge to greatness - they cannot work and their civilization collapses."
- A letter to CHOAM, attributed to the Preacher

Know that in a remote place in a cloud-covered valley
There is still a sacred pine that passes through the chill of ages.

Kirtu, I'm reading this late but we're still within the 49 days. Will dedicate tsog practice to her.

My she speedily be spirited to the Pure Land of Amitabha on the back of Garuda and from there directly achieve enlightenment!
