In response to the very sad and tragic invasion of Ukraine, our spiritual director Jigme Rinpoche led a meditation and group prayers last Sunday via zoom. During that period Rinpoche recommended that we recite the mantra of Taras, Guru Rinpoche and Chenrezig as many times as possible. Please pray that may this terrible situation be resolved swiftly, and that lasting peace and harmony may be restored. His Holiness Dalia lama sends his prayers and express his deep concern.“ I have been deeply saddened by the conflict in Ukraine. Our world has become so interdependent that violent conflict between two countries inevitably impacts the rest of the world. War is out-dated – non-violence is the only way. We need to develop a sense of the oneness of humanity by considering other human beings as brothers and sisters”.
