A Request for My Aunt
Mary Patrica Sullivan Chandler
It seems to be that time of life when many of my aunts and uncles are passing away. It is a good reminder to practice while we can. Anyways,I just got word that my aunt is in a coma and in kidney failure and they intend to take her off life support at 8pm tonight.
I’m putting out a request to anyone who may read this to dedicate some merit to her, chant or pray for her if you feel so moved. May she have a favorable rebirth.
aniccā vata saṅkhārā, upāda vaya dhammino. uppajjitvā nirujjanti, tesaṁ vūpasamo sukho.
all compound things are inconstant, their nature: to arise and pass away. they disband even as they arise, their total stilling is bliss.
