What Is The Name Of This Mantra?

Postby asunthatneversets » Sun Feb 26, 2012 8:10 pm

I've been wondering what the name of this mantra or song is for awhile now and was wondering if anyone could help? I have another recording of this song at the end of a teaching on mahamudra and it's beautifully sung, it's actually sung so powerfully that even my 3 year old is captivated by it and likes it played. But I only have it at the tail end of a 45 min teaching mp3 and have been trying to find the recording by itself. Needless to say I haven't had much luck and had given up... and then came across this video today which has the same song (with someone else singing it) at the end. So seems to be an iconic mantra or song, figured someone here might know... any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's the video from youtube I found today, it's a video by Tenzin Wangyal

The song starts at 3:33


Direct link to video on youtube:

The other recording (with the incredibly powerful vocals) is at the end of a teaching on Tilopa's instructions on mahamudra given at the ganges... the teaching is given by Dan Brown

Tilopa's Instructions mp3 can be downloaded for free in the link below for anyone interested in that as well... song starts at 46:30 on there, I emailed Dan to ask about it awhile ago and didn't hear back (figured he's a busy man with all the good work he does).

This is a praising prayer dedicated to the founder of Tashi Menri Ling monastery in the Tsang province of Tibet
His name is Nyame Shrab Gyaltsen and Bonpos keep him in very high regard thinking of him as the second Buddha.

Dechen Gyalpo Kunzang Gyalwa Dhud
Mijed Szung Dhen Sherab Ma wey Seng
Zam-ling Bon Gyi Tsuk Gyen Nyam-med Pa
Sherab Gyaltsen Zhab la Sol wa Dheb.
