During times of natural disaster and suffering, such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, fire, and so on, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche recommended doing prayers and practices such as Sa Chu Me Lung (from the Sampa Lhundrup), Green Tara, the Seven Line Prayer, the Vajra Guru Mantra, Sampa Nyur Drubma, and the Kunzang Monlam to help bring peace and compassion and restore balance to the inner and outer elements.

Rinpoche said, “Buddha's teachings of wisdom and compassion guide us to benefit other beings as the source of our own and others' true happiness that will last forever. We can offer our strong prayers of aspiration to relieve beings' suffering, and can also make offerings of our time and help or material offerings of any amount. When we contribute to other people helping those in need, whatever the size, we do it along with our prayers and dedication of merit and rejoicing for the merit of those who are helping. In this way it is like putting our own little drop of water in the vast ocean. Until the ocean itself is exhausted, that little drop will never dry up. In this way, we add to the positive actions of others, increasing our own merit forever, until all beings are liberated into the state of ultimate enlightenment."
