Rinpoche gave the following advice to a student whose mother has Alzheimer’s Disease.

The following pujas should be done for her:

  • Dü kar: 150 times. To be done by the Gyurme Tantric College.
  • Heart Sutra: 2,000 times. To be recited by the Tsawa Khamtsen.
  • Chag sum

Then, these practices should be done for her rebirth, which is the most important thing:

  • Read the Kangyur: This comes out very, very positive for her good rebirth.
  • Offerings to the Sangha: This could be done anywhere, to create merit for her future rebirth.
