Update: Don was killed.
Prayer request for Liberation Prison Project student facing execution.
Dear Dharma Friends,
Don Wackerly has been a student of Liberation Prison Project since 2006. He has been regularly practicing and studying over the past 4 years.
Don is scheduled for execution in McAlester Oklahoma on 14 October. We are dedicating prayers for a stay of execution, although it seems likely that his execution will proceed as scheduled.
Can you please put Don on your prayer lists. If you are able, please dedicate Medicine Buddha puja or sadhana and Medicine Buddha and Chenrezig mantras for Don.
Don continues to do his practice and to express gratitude for all the Dharma support he has received.
Prayers were dedicated for Don during the Light of the Path retreat and Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recently given Don practice advice.
Here is an inspiring brief talk by his lawyer, Susan Otto, at Sravasti Abbey, testifying to the positive transformation Don has made since meeting the Dharma:
Liberation Prison Project

San Francisco CA 94131
+61 407 419 720
Physically in the house of no release, but when the mind is practicing Dharma it becomes the house for achieving ultimate liberation from the real samsaric prison.
