My father

Post by KathyLauren » Tue Jan 10, 2012 1:16 am

My father left this life at 2:05 this afternoon, three weeks short of his 89th birthday. If you feel so inclined, please join me in wishing him a safe journey to his next life, and fortunate rebirth. He did his best in this life.

Om mani padme hum.

Dear Keith

May your father have a fortunate rebirth, may your family and you find comfort in his life and your memories of him.

You are all in my prayers.

Ah Keith, this is a hard thing. I am not a skilled practioner, but I think I can bend a Medicine Buddha puja to include both you and your father.

May he find a good rebirth, may you swiftly find peace.

Hi Keith,

Sorry to hear of your loss. I hope that your father's passing was peaceful.
May his next rebirth be a fortunate one, where he may hear the Dharma and meet the Sangha.

Namo Amitabhaya!

Today, whilst practicing Om mani padme hum my thoughts were with you and your father. May he find Dharma and peace in the next life.

Namaste, to both you and your late father.
