Practices for Child With Cancer

A student wrote to Rinpoche about his 18-month-old daughter, who had a lump in her chest.

Dear Christina,
I am sorry it has taken so long to reply. I did receive your letter a long time ago, but I was traveling and I did not take your letter with me, so now I am back and have been able to check about your daughter. I hope she is still OK. I checked what to do for her and this is what came out best:

  •  I will send you three bottles of blessed water, which she can sip each day.
  •  Ask your daughter to recite Black Garuda mantra. Maybe you could make it into a song and she can sing it.
  •  You and your husband should recite the mantra called "Mother of all Dharmas."
  •  You and your husband should recite Vajrapani, Hayagriva, Garuda mantra.

Visualize the deity above your daughter and recite the mantra. Visualize that beams of nectar enter her and purify the four things (sickness, spirit harm, negative karma, and defilements). Think that she is completely purified, all her sickness and the four things come out in the form of scorpions, dirty liquid, and smoke. Think that she is completely purified and meditate strongly on this. Recite the mantra every day until she gets better.

With much love and prayers...
