A student wrote that his wife was about to give birth and asked if there were obstacles as the baby was overdue.

Regarding your wife’s pregnancy, Rinpoche checked and said the pregnancy and birth would be OK, but the newborn baby would have a health obstacle. This is what has to be done:

  • Fifteen long-life tsa tsas: ask the Kopan nuns to make these.
  • Extensive Medicine Buddha puja by the Fifth Dalai Lama.
  • She nyin dü dog puja: to be recited by monks at Jadrel (?) khangtsen.
  • Lu zong puja: to be recited twice

Rinpoche added that these practices are not just for your baby but for all sentient beings.
