Reciting Golden Light Sutra for Nepal

As advised by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, I have finished reciting the Golden Light Sutra for Nepal in light of the recent earthquake disaster there. I would like to dedicate the recitation as follows:-

1. to Lama Zopa's safety and long life as well as for all of my Gurus.
2. to the dead in Nepal - may they be reborn in a happier place.
3. to those who are alive - may their homes and lives be restored.
4. to the reduction of my greed, anger and delusion. Do I need to say more? :)

Half-way through the recitation, I felt as if there is a sudden ripening of my negative karma. Suddenly I became sick. I wasn't having flu, suddenly I have flu. But I recovered slightly the next day. It's not that serious. At the end of the recitation, especially after the chapter of Jalavahana's fish and chapter on tigress, I really felt happy. At the completion of the recitation, I felt as if a huge burden had been lifted from my shoulders. It's like something negative I had been carrying is now gone. I do not know what that is, but I am thankful for this Sutra. And thankful to Lama Zopa for advising people to recite it. Thank you!
