Terminal Cancer

Rinpoche gave the following advice to a student who was dying of cancer.

Please do the following practices:

  •  eight malas of OM MANI PADME HUM
  • sixty recitations of Shakyamuni Buddha mantra
  • thirty recitations of Mitukpa mantra
  • ten recitations of Norbu mantra (below)

While you recite the mantras, make strong prayers that all sentient beings may be free from all sufferings, negative karma, delusion, sickness, and spirit harm and to bring all sentient beings to enlightenment.

Norbu mantra:

OM BIPULA GARBE MANI PARBHE TATHAGATANI RADE SHANI MANI MANI SUPARBHE BHIMALE SAGARA GAMBIRE HUM HUM ZOLA SOLA BUDDHA AVALOKITE GU HAYA ADHI KHATHRITE GARBE SVAHA
