You rose at the brink of destruction
to preserve ancient truth
throughout the world: when it was dark,
you brought light
when it was dangerous you gave protection,
you burnished the gold of Asia,
you nourished the Triple Gem
in the wild fortress of Western lands,
until we heard a conch from every mountain
and found relief in every wind.
To the teacher, the terton, the tamer of beings,
Happy Man from Golok
and Great Dharma Lord,
To the one above all others, I bow down, now
to you I pray: May your health be stable, your life be long,
and all of your wishes be spontaneously granted.

Numerous sources are reporting that Ashoka Mukpo, son of the late Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's widow, and himself an enthroned tulku, has contracted the Ebola virus in Liberia, and is being evacuated to the United States for treatment at this time.
Working on humanitarian issues in West Africa for some years now, Mukpo was recently employed as a freelance cameraman. Symptoms reportedly appeared just after his return to Liberia with a broadcast journalist from the NBC news organization.
Please pray for the complete recovery of this precious being.

"Our life is unsteady like an autumn cloud;
Our body is like a water bubble, without any essence;
What has been put together and piled up is like a dream or a magic show."
