TBF-DA Practice Notice #0005
Those Requesting Remote Empowerment May Begin to Practice Immediately after Sending a Request Letter
Root Guru Living Buddha Lian-sheng has granted special permission as follows:
''Because the rapidly spreading COVID-19 epidemic has turned into a crisis, True Buddha School (TBS) disciples may write to HH Living Buddha Lian-sheng to request remote empowerment for the Practice of Tara Who Saves From Contagious Diseases. One's request for empowerment should be forwarded via post, fax, or email to the True Buddha Foundation (TBF). One may place one's palms together in sincere homage, pray to Living Buddha Lian-sheng in the void, and begin to practice immediately, that is, prior to receiving a response to one's request letter. (This applies only to TBS disciples who have taken refuge.)''
In accordance with Vajrayana practice, prior to engaging in any True Buddha Tantric Dharma, one must take refuge in Dharma King Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu. Please forward your refuge request by post or email and provide your real name, address, and age. In your letter, please note ''Remote Empowerment Request for Refuge''.
One may also visit any TBS cultivation venue for assistance in taking refuge. (There are TBS cultivation venues in every corner of the world.)
One must receive empowerment prior to engaging in the Practice of Tara Who Saves From Contagious Diseases. If one has not received empowerment, one may request bestowal of remote empowerment by writing to TBF. One may also request assistance in remote empowerment from any TBS cultivation venue.
Note: In the subject line of one's letter, please state ''Remote Empowerment Request for Refuge and the Practice of Tara Who Saves from Contagious Diseases''. The letter should include one's name, address, and the amount of one's voluntary offering. Forward the letter, including the wire transfer receipt, via email, fax or post to:
