A student’s vocal cord was paralyzed and over time this had resulted in a weak, high-pitched voice and difficulty swallowing. A recent operation had enabled swallowing, but the student’s voice was now very squeaky and hoarse.

My most dear, most kind, most precious wish-fulfilling one,
I am very sorry for the long delay. 

I checked and you need the puja called ga gön. If you can, request one of the geshes to do this for you. You can explain this is what came out in my observation, and that you need it done.

You also need to drink mantra water. I will make this for you and send it to you. Generate bodhicitta motivation and while drinking the water you should visualize the Buddha powerfully blessing you. Visualize the water as completely blessed energy purifying all the four things: negative karma, disease, spirit harm and obscurations. You should feel that your body is totally filled with blissful purifying energy. Concentrate on that and at the end make strong dedications.

You need to have the Padmasambhava incense puja [Tib: nolsang] done.

You also need to wear two protection amulets: Dzambhala protection and Namgyalma protection.

Please, every day if you can, do the morning motivation, The Method to Transform a Suffering Life into Happiness (Including Enlightenment).

This is my advice at this time. Please make your life most meaningful with the thought of bodhicitta day and night and in every action you do.

With much love and prayers ...
