Advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche for COVID-19
Thangton Gyalpo Prayerathon

Would you like to do a bit more for your internal practice during these challenging times? FPMT Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche and His Holiness the Dalai Lama have recommended a few practices and mantras to recite to maintain our own good health and fend off the spread of COVID-19, and they can certainly make you feel more empowered during these critical days. Rinpoche has said that group practice can have a greater benefit than practicing alone.
 
The International Mahayana Institute (IMI), FPMT’s community of monks and nuns, in coordination with Chenrezig Institute in Queensland, Australia, is organizing a free, online weekly group practice using these practices as advised by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
