Rinpoche gave this advice to a center director for success and protection of the centers in the area.

My most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling one,
Please read the Golden Light Sutra five times in each month. This can be done as a group at the center, or individually, for success of the center. This will enable people to connect to the center but it also depends on the other teaching schedule. When reciting the sutra, it is important to meditate on the meaning, so recite it skillfully.

If there are many people coming to the center it is good to do social service. Also pray to Medicine Buddha or Tara.

To protect from pollution, it’s good to have Lama Atisha stupa protection. [You can find the downloadable Lama Atisha Protection Mantra at FPMT's Foundation Store.]

It is also often with the Namgyalma protection. This will protect people in the place from pollution, so you don’t get pollution from people who have broken samaya with the guru. The Namgyalma Protection Amulet you wear has both. You can wear it, but also put it in the gompa to protect the place.

Thank you very much. Try with a good heart and bodhicitta.

With much love and prayers ...
