Regarding the Live-streamed Prayers for a Time of Pandemic:

Over the next week, as we recite prayers together with the Gyalwang Karmapa for the pandemic to subside, please follow the rules and regulations of the country where you are staying. Instead of gathering in large groups, please remain in your own homes and pray as fervently as you can:
  • That the sick may recover swiftly,
  • That doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals continue to find new treatments and medicines,
  • That those who have passed away move on to a happy rebirth,
  • That the pandemic may swiftly end everywhere in the world,
  • And that health, happiness, and prosperity may flourish.
