 “Guru Rinpoche said that from time to time, disasters occur in the world due to the collective force of negativities within people’s disturbed minds. According to Buddhism, the elements of earth, water, fire and air that constitute the phenomenal world are interdependently connected to the mind. Because of this, outer catastrophes are the results of disturbed states of mind.” — Tsoknyi Rinpoche
 
The practices that one can do for protection from disasters from the elements are:
 
1. Practice of Ksitigarbha (This practice has been recommended by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche for our degenerate times):
(a) Reciting his name in Chinese or in Tibetan
Tibetan Phonetics are as follows : “JANG CHUB SEM PA SEM PA CHEN PO SA YI NYING PO LA CHAG TSAL LO / CHO DO KYAB SU CHI O”
which means “I prostrate, praise, make offerings and take refuge in the Bodhisattva of great mind, Earth Essence Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha)”
 
(b) Reciting his mantra that eradicates fixed karma
OM PRA MA NI DA NI SO HA
One can listen to the recording here http://www.ompramanidanisoha.com/audio/dizang_mdy3.mp3
 
2. Practice of Medicine Buddha
Reciting the names of the seven Medicine Buddhas

4. Padmasambhava / Guru Rinpoche Prayer to remove obstacles
 
Tibetan:
Dusum Sangye Guru Rinpoche
Ngodrub Kundag Dewa Chenpo Shab
Barchey Kunsel Dudul Dragpo Tsal
Solwa Debso Jingyi Labtu Sol
Chinang Sangwey Barchey Shiwa Dang
Sampa Lhungyi Drubpar Jingyi Lob

English:
Guru Rinpoche, Buddha of the three times,
Lord of all siddhis who is the one of great bliss,
Dispeller of all obstacles, wrathful tamer of Mara,
We supplicate you; please grant your blessings.
Grant your blessings that outer, inner and secret obstacles be pacified
And that our intentions be spontaneously accomplished
 
It would be very beneficial to recite the “Dusum Sangye Guru Rinpoche” supplication, also known as Buddha of the Three Times. This prayer has the power to remove the outer obstacles created by the four elements, the inner obstacles of physical sickness due to energy imbalance in our body, and the secret obstacles of depression and neuroses stemming from our grasping mind. — Tsoknyi Rinpoche
 
5. Take 24 hours sojong precepts
 
6. Recite Om Mani Padme Hung and meditate on Avalokiteshvara and taking-and-giving (tonglen)
 
7. Do Lion-faced Dakini or Sengdongma or Singhamukha practice
 
When doing the prayers to the deities such as Lion-Face Dakini, etc., visualize the deity and then recite the mantra with full confidence. Rely upon the deity, thinking that the deity has all the power and has manifested for us, sentient beings, in different aspects for different purposes, for sentient beings who have that karma. – Lama Zopa Rinpoche
