Prayer or Metta Request

This isn't Buddhist news, but I'd like to request prayers or metta for Elton John. He's ill with the E-Coli virus.

I didn't know this.
Especially right now, many people are very worried by the thought of illness and disease. There is a translation of a prayer titled "Liberating Sakya From Disease" (That is from Lama Zopa's site). It is an old one, but one that is certainly relevant now. It is a short one, and I have been reciting it daily. Perhaps others could also recite is as well as some "mani's" perhaps, and dedicate the merit's.
Here is the link to the prayer...

There is also Medicine Buddha from both many Buddhist Traditions and Bön

In Tibetan Buddhism the kriya tantra version (see "Medicine Buddha Teachings" Thrangu Rinpoche - http://www.snowlionpub.com/html/product_7320.html , also available as a PDF from the Dharma Haven link above) of the sadhana does not require empowerment, however it does make the practice more effective.

Best wishes,
Gerry
