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.


  1. sure, dear kalyanamitta – she looks very nice – may she see Truth…! Metta

  2. I’ll dedicate the merit of my sit to your Aunt Pat. May she be peaceful and at ease.

  3. I will dedicate Metta during my meditation session.May she be well and happy.

    Death is inherit as one is born along with old age and sickness as Lord Buddha taught.

    With Metta
