From the colophon:
Once, an epidemic was spreading from one person to another at the great seat of the Glorious Sakya Monastery. Whatever the mantric masters tried—thread crosses, tormas, medicines, mantras, protection-amulets, and so forth—had no effect and the monastery was in danger of annihilation. At that time, the Great Lord Mahasiddha [Thangtong Gyalpo] performed the “space refuge,” recited a number of mani mantras, and proclaimed this prayer, after which the entire epidemic immediately ceased in dependence upon its performance. Thereby, it became renowned as the Vajra Speech Radiating Masses of Clouds of Blessing Entitled “The Prayer Liberating Sakya from Disease.”
Lama Zopa Rinpoche commented, “One time in Tibet, an epidemic disease happened in Sakya and so many people died. Then the Bonpos and tantric practitioners, ngagpas, did many pujas but nothing helped. So then, I guess, he made prayers to stop all this epidemic disease in Sakya. Then everything completely stopped after he did this prayer. So this prayer is also good for this epidemic disease [ COVID-19] now to stop it. It is good to recite it to stop it in the world."
Mahasiddha Thangtong Gyalpo was a great yogi of fifteenth-century Tibet. In addition, he was a skilled engineer and artist, famous for helping the people of Tibet in very practical ways. He is said to have built fifty-eight iron bridges, sixty wooden bridges, 118 ferry crossings, 120 assembly halls and temples, 111 stupas, and many hundreds of large and small statues, and created innumerable paintings.
