“Thanksgiving is a special day for loved ones to gather and for that reason it is positive. But it is also a time when many turkeys’ lives are taken. We are doing this puja to pray that these turkeys be reborn in Amitabha’s pureland. This practice will focus our compassion for them and all sentient beings, including our loved ones who may be ill or have passed away.”

  Lama Sonam Rinpoche ~ 2014
