It is so so sad for all those affected by the recent natural disasters of hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes around the world bringing untold sufferings. We are so helpless and unable to do anything apart from some gestures of donations to a disaster relief fund.
What we can do though is offer our sincere prayers for everyone affected around the world. Simply recite this short mantras or prayers to Phag Pa Sai Nging Po (Kshitigarbha) to pacify the harm caused by the natural disasters.

In Sanskrit he is known as Kshitigarbha. He is a Bodhisattva and is one of the eight heart sons of the Buddha Shakyamuni. In Tibetan, he is known as Phag Pa Sai Nging Po which is the essence of the Earth.
He is particularly associated with bringing help and comfort to those in the underworld realm of hell beings. He is as important as notable figures such as Manjushri (Jambay Yang) the lord of knowledge and wisdom, and Avalokiteshvara (Chenrig Zig) the lord of boundless compassion, which are prominent figures in the various Mahayana Sutras of Buddhism.
