Hello local sangha members,
In the face of these wildfires, we want you to know that we are thinking of you and that we are here to support you. Some of us at Gomde have already heard from members of the community, and so far nobody has personally reported being catastrophically influenced. If any of you have been harmed—if you have lost your homes or businesses—we want to know so that we can offer you help.
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche is aware of the wildfires in our region, and we have notified him that Gomde is safe. We have also asked him to pray for everyone affected by the fires and to pray that the fires are quickly contained. He told us that we should recite the 21 Praises to Tara to remove obstacles related to the five elements, and for the benefit of all beings.
As of the publication of this message, Gomde CA has no phone service, but internet is still working, and you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, please let us know if you have been harmed in any way. All of us on the land send you our love and our prayers.
Your Gomde California Sangha
