so give up all your schemes and ambitions.
If you have got to think about something—
Make it the uncertainty of the hour of your death.
It is with the most profound sadness that we inform you about the death of Alan Peck who died on Wednesday evening, 3rd March 2010. The premature passing of such a gentle man, a sincere practitioner and lineage holder is an immense loss.
Through the virtues we have collected by practising the stages of the path, may Alan find the opportunity to practise in the same way.
May Alan experience the happiness of humans and gods, and quickly attain enlightenment, so that his samsara is finally extinguished.
May there arise in Alan's mind great faith in Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, and thus may he always receive the blessings of the Three Precious Jewels.
May Alan meet precious Teachers who reveal the stages of the path to enlightenment, and through engaging in this path may he quickly attain the ultimate peace of full enlightenment.
The Buddhadharma is the supreme medicine that relieves all mental pain, so may this precious Dharma Jewel pervade all worlds throughout space.
However many living beings there are experiencing mental and physical suffering, may their suffering cease through the power of our merit, and may they find everlasting happiness and joy.
May there never arise in this world the miseries of incurable disease, famine, or war, or the dangers of earthquakes, fires,
floods, storms, and so forth.
Through the blessings of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, the truth of actions and their effects, and the power of our pure superior intention, may all our prayers be fulfilled.
