Advice from Rinpoche during an earthquake in 2002. 

Students at the centers should do the following practices to prevent more problems from earthquakes over the next six weeks:

  1. Recite Ngang Tsa Nangye and Tashi Tsegpa every day. [This is for Geshe Lama Konchog and the Geshe from Tibet Office to do.]
  2. Take eight Mahayana precepts as much as possible and pray that there will be no more natural disasters, there and everywhere else.
  3. Recite Migtsema mantra as much as possible, with prayers.
  4. Recite the Padmasambhava prayer. This is very powerful. Do this at least three times in the morning and evening, if possible more.
  5. Read the Diamond Sutra and the Heart Sutra to purify negative karma.
  6. Praises to the Twenty-one Taras.
  7. Lion-face Dakini prayer.

Keep doing these prayers for three to six months.
