musings about Nepali earthquake, Dharma, degenerate age

My girlfriend suggested I write a blog post about how the Nepali earthquake and the crumbling of the Buddha-Dharma might be connected.  Personally I don’t feel qualified to write such a post.  Yes we are technically in the degenerate age, but we can also change our communities for the better as well.  It is up to us whether the Buddha-Dharma crumbles (in this century).  Maybe I will learn more about this topic soon and be able to pass along more thoughts.

I am about to attend some high Lamas in Arlington, Va this coming weekend, including His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon and his retinue, so maybe I can ask them to elucidate on this topic.

I want to stress that I feel first and foremost for the Nepali (and Tibetan and Himalayan) peoples who are all suffering horribly due to land slides, mud slides, homelessness and lack of food and clean water…  I send out the greatest prayers and well-wishing I can muster.  One of my teachers suggested that, “if we had nothing to do for half an hour, that perhaps we could imagine Nepal (and all the surrounding regions) being surrounded by a vajra tent of blue Hungs.”  Please see my earlier post if you would like to contribute any material goods (money) to the clean up and rescue cause.

I sincerely hope the Buddha-Dharma is getting stronger in the world, but honestly I’m not sure.  Impermanence is for certain.  The Dharma is taking birth in some regions and perhaps dying back in others.  I just hope that after the basic necessities of health and life are taken care of, that the holy sites in Nepal and India can be restored.
