Condolence Letter from Gyalwa Karmapa concerning earthquake in Mexico

Karmapa International Buddhist Institute

Recently, there was a massive earthquake in Mexico that has undoubtedly changed the lives of many people in numerous ways.

I pray that all of those affected by this disaster and its subsequent repercussions find solace and serenity in these trying times.

As Buddhists, we can do well to offer the merits of our practice to all victims who have suffered from this tragedy, in particular the practice of the six-syllable mantra of Chenrezig.

With this in mind, I encourage everyone to join me in dedicating our prayers and aspirations to the people of Mexico.

My best wishes and prayers,

Please share
