H.E. Ling Rinpoche Prays for All Suffering from Covid-19

His Eminence Ling Rinpoche is praying for all beings everywhere who are suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic. This global crisis leaves millions of people experiencing illness, bereavement and extreme hardship due to a loss of income and livelihood.

While there is little practical support Rinpoche can offer at an international level, His Eminence feels particularly moved by the plight of India’s poorest people at this time and wishes to contribute to relief efforts.

India has provided a home to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a large population of Tibetans who have sought refuge in this great country. India is also His Eminence Ling Rinpoche’s home. Rinpoche is therefore making a donation to the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM CARES FUND), to be used for containment and relief efforts against the coronavirus outbreak in this country, and toward similar pandemic-like situations in the future.

Rinpoche prays that charities such as the PM CARES Fund will have every success in providing essential care and support to those people in most urgent need. Rinpoche extends his sincere, heartfelt appreciation to the Government of India for their efforts to contain the spread of the virus and save lives.

His Eminence feels deeply grateful to all those who are making personal sacrifices to alleviate the suffering of others and His Eminence encourages everyone to continue helping and supporting each other as much as possible, to overcome this difficult situation together.
