Dear Dharma Sisters and Brothers, Several people have asked about donations in Paco's memory. We've spoken with Hilda and she feels that he would have appreciated donations for prayers. Gomde has arranged to sponsor the Peaceful and Wrathful Deities of the Bardo, Shitro Narag Dongtruk, to be performed for Paco at Ka-Nying monastery on the full moon day (October 9) through monlam.org. The monks at Ka-Nying monastery will perform this during their monthly puja. On the same day, a photo of Paco will be burned during the Fire Ceremony (Amitabha Jang Chog Puja) also performed by the monks. The purpose of this ceremony is to help the recently deceased through the Bardo state and on to rebirth in Amitabha's pure land of Dewachen. In addition, on each of the seven day anniversaries of Paco's death, the monks will say prayers for him, including the Amitabha Pure Land Aspiration prayer (Dhemon Monlam) and the Samantabhadra King of Aspiration prayer (Sang Chod Monlam). To make a donation in Paco's name to support the puja and prayers, please fill out the donation form below. It has been wonderful to see the sangha come together with prayers for Paco and support for Hilda and Anna. Sangha is so precious. With thankfulness to each of you.
