A Prayer for the Coronavirus Crisis
Composed by Demo Rinpoche on March 16, 2020

All living beings are my parents,
All living beings are my siblings.
When all living beings are suffering
I fervently generate indestructible love and compassion.

By the blessings of immeasurable love
By the force of awareness of unmistaken truth
Of all previous great holy beings
May all living beings be free from the dangers of illness.

Grasping hands in a circle of friendship,
Seeing the wisdom of benefit to self and others,
By the perfections of generosity, morality, and patience,
May all living beings be free from the dangers of illness.

This disease, as well as
All future wars, famine, and crises shall not arise to be named.
From the smallest plant to every creature on this planet,
May all be victorious over unwanted harm.

During the critical emergency of the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), with the desire to help relax the mental and physical uneasiness of all friends on earth, Demo Rinpoche wrote this four-stanza prayer with a warm heart.

Your Support Matters

With deep appreciation for the dharma and your support in making these helpful resources widely available, we welcome all tax-deductible contributions during this difficult time.


Please email your count once a week or in groups of 10,000 to mantracollection@jewelheart.org

Jewel Heart has begun a collective Tara Mantra Count among the international sangha. Demo Rinpoche recommended to aim at collecting 5 Million Tara mantras:

OM TARE TUTARE TURE SOHA 

Those with the appropriate initiations can use the long or short self-generation sadhana and in general everybody can use the Prayer to the Noble Tara as framework for collecting mantras or you can just repeat the mantra on its own.

Please send in your mantra counts once a week or in blocks of 10,000 to mantracollection@jewelheart.org. You can start any time. We will create a web page where you will be able to see the collective mantra count week by week.

Private Home Retreats

During the Corona social isolation period you may feel inspired to do a personal retreat for a few days or even weeks such as a refuge retreat, Lam Rim retreat, Migtsema (Tsongkhapa’s Mantra) retreat within the Ganden Lhagyema, White Tara, and other tantric deity retreat. If you are contemplating an individual retreat and would like support, please email programs@jewelheart.org.

Click on “Show Vajrayana” from “Vajrayana Materials and Downloads” at the bottom of the Member webpage. If you’ve received the required initiations, open “Vajrayana Audio Prayers”.

Prayer Requests 

For those wishing to request prayers for friends and family who are sick or have passed away, please email Ujjen Tsewang at ujjen@jewelheart.org . Ujjen will make arrangements for prayers to be recited by monks from Gelek Rimpoche’s closest monastic home, Drepung Loseling Monastery’s Nyagre Khangtsen. Your donation for prayers will be sent directly to the monks. Prayers will be offered as soon as arrangements are made.    

Jewel Heart Chaplaincy Services
