A student wrote that their family members were going through a difficult time, financially, emotionally and health wise. Rinpoche advised these practices.

My most dear, most kind, most precious, wish-fulfilling one,
Regarding your family and situation, you should recite the Celestial Mansion [The Great Increasing Jewel, Fathomless Celestial Mansion, Extremely Well Abiding, Secret Holy Mantra] twenty times a day, to be able to help whatever you are doing.

Also recite these two mantras from The Method to Transform a Suffering Life into Happiness (Including Enlightenment) forty times each day.

Holy Name Mantra that Fulfills Wishes
DE ZHIN SHEG PA SA DZIN GYÄL PO LA CHAG TSHÄL LO
TADYATHA / OM DHARE DHARE / DHARANI BÄNDHE SWAAHAA

Visualize Guru Shakyamuni Buddha. All the different buddhas are the embodiment of Guru Shakyamuni Buddha, so you can just think about Guru Shakyamuni Buddha and that will be OK.

I will pray also.

Read Arya Sanghata Sutra eleven times. Reading this sutra collects the most unbelievable, unbelievable, unbelievable merits. Pray to the Buddha before reading the text and read it with bodhicitta: to free the numberless sentient beings—the numberless hell beings, hungry ghosts, every single animal including insects and fish in the sea, humans, suras, asuras, so every single sentient being—from the oceans of samsaric sufferings and bring them to enlightenment, the peerless happiness.

Think, “For that, I need to achieve enlightenment by myself; for that, I need to achieve the state of omniscience, therefore I am going to recite this sutra.” That is the main motivation, but of course, to help other sentient beings, you need success, so for this, you recite the text.

With much love and prayers ...
