Announcement of H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Thinley Lhundup –
Due to the worldwide outbreak of the Corona virus (COVID-19) I contact all Drikung Kagyü monasteries and centers as well as ordained and lay practitioners with the request to practice the Dakini Parnashavari daily and to recite the mantra. She is the highest mother of all Buddhas and appears in this form to pacify diseases. Some time ago I published the very short Sadhana of Dakini Parnashavari. Today I would like to present this new compilation of the practice of Dakini Parnashavari from the collected works of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgön. Even the verses in this work are quotes of his writings.
If you want to learn more about the Kalash Sadhana by Dakini Parnashavari, you can search for it in the collected works of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgön. I request that this Sadhana will be translated into as many languages as possible so that it can spread far and wide. This practice requires that everyone practices it with love and compassion.
I pray that this practice will quickly overcome all the negative deeds and obstacles of both the deceased and the living and will quickly establish them in enlightenment.
Konchok Tenzin Kunzang Thinley Lhundup, better known as Gyalwa Drikungpa, on the 16th day of the first Tibetan month of the Iron Mouse Year (March 10, 2020), Escondido, USA.
