Geshe Doga Update

Dear Friends,

Our beloved precious teacher Geshe Doga has now returned home from hospital. Geshela is well and is resting comfortably here at Tara Institute.

Please understand Geshela needs to rest and recover.

Thankyou for all of your prayers and good wishes.

The evening prayers programme for Geshe Doga's long life and health here at Tara Institute will no longer proceed, please feel free to continue to offer more prayers at home.

Please read below some of the messages we have received for Geshe Doga in response to the email updates.

Kerry Whitlock
Tara Institute

"Thanks again. It's very reassuring and much appreciated"

"Thank you for sending these emails, following with hope and deep love for Geshe Doga"

"Praying and practising for Geshe Doga's long life!"

"Could you please put up Geshe Doga's long life prayer on the website if possible"

"Thank you for keeping us updated on Geshe Doga's health issues. We are in Bali so we send prayers from here wishing him a speedy recovery. Tell him he has our loving thoughts"

"Thank you so much for this update"

"I have read your emails re the health of Geshela and I just want to say how I find your communicating with others re his health so caring - it must be of great comfort to his friends. This indicates to me that the Tara Institute team are kind and caring people. I wish Geshela all the best for his improvement"

"I am overseas and so sorry to hear about Geshe La. If there is any chance, can you please tell him that he is in my love, thoughts and prayers. Nobody in my life has been as kind or as helpful to me as he has. If I have had any good karma in my life he was it.
I hope that everything else in Melbourne is going smoothly.
Much love."

This enables the Tara Institute community to support the dharma and allow us all to receive precious teachings from Venerable Geshe Doga and Geshe Lobsang

Lama Zopa said: My point here is for you to understand what we are doing and what you are helping with. This is so that you can rejoice. It really is unbelievable, incredible, what you are helping with, and this creates so much benefit for the world and for sentient beings. This actually creates the cause to liberate so many beings. This is an incredible opportunity for you to rejoice, and if you rejoice and then dedicate the merits, it is amazing.
