New Delhi, March 13, 2011

Dear dharma friends,

It is with profound regret and heartfelt sorrow that I have been following the
tragic developments resulting from the disastrous earthquake in Japan. The
tragedy has cost thousands of lives already and countless people are still
missing, not to mention all those who have lost the very basis of their
existence. The long-term consequences of this catastrophe are as yet

Apart from extending material help to them, what we as dharma practitioners can do is support the victims of the disaster by dedicating our practice, prayers and merit to them.

Therefore, I will extend my prayers and wishes to both the deceased and the bereaved, and I request all of you to do the same.

In particular, I would like to ask you to focus on the six-syllable mantra of Chenresig and to accumulate as many of these mantras as possible for their sake.

With prayers,

Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje
