Rinpoche gave the following practice advice to a student who was having a cataract removed from her eye.

Dear Karen, 
I checked regarding the cataract operation and this is what you need to do before having the operation.

  • Do White Tara retreat for four months. It doesn’t have to be a strict retreat, but you need to do it.
  • Chag-sum puja has to be done, just before the operation.
  • Do Medicine Buddha puja four times.

All of this should be done before having the operation.
