The Long-Life Prayer for HH17 Karmapa, Thaye Dorje

written by HH Shamar Rinpoche

KAL-MANG GONG-NE THA-YE DRO-WEI-DON
Many aeons before have you cultivated enlightened thought and vowed to work for the well-being of all sentient beings.

BED-PAR DAM-CHE DEN-MON MA-DOR-WEI
Never to forsake but firmly abide by the resolve of your previous aspirations.

KYE-WEI TRENG-WAR SAG-PEI TSHOG-NYII-THU
Though the power of continuous gathering

MIN-PEI ZUG-KU KOD-PA TAG-TEN-SHOG
of the dual accumulations be eternally firm.

GANG-TSHE THUB-WANG DE-SUNG CHHO-KHOR-LUNG
The unceasing stream of dharma-teaching spoken by Buddha

DUI-JEI ZHING-LA DREN-PEI THAB-KYI-SANG
gently flows through the field of tameable beings fully endowed with knowledge, love and power

DZIN-LA KHYEN-NU TSE-WEI THU-NGA-WA
You uphold with majesty the secret method of Mantra. May you live long and abide firmly

MA-WEI WANG-PO NGO-WOR TSHO-GYUR-CHIG
in the nature of Manjushree, the king of eloguent speech. You are the glory of upholding perfect stream-like ambrosia

PEN-CHEN NA-RO DAM-PEI CHHAG-GYA-CHEI
the profound quintessential instruction of Mahamudra given by Pandit Naropa.

ZAB-NED DUD-TSII GYUN-CHHOG DZIN-PEI-PAL
May your lotus feet be firm and enduring. Whilst perpetually,

DU-SUM KHYEN-PA GANG-DEI TRIN-LE-THA.
succeeding to the enlightened-activity, knower of three times.

YONG-SU DZIN-ZHIN SHAB-PED TEN-GYUR-CHIG
Thus have I prayed for the truth of my resolve.

DE-TAR DAG-GI MON-LAM DEN-PEI-DON
through the power of profound aspiration presented to the

CHHOG-SUM GYA-TSO CHEN-NGAR OOL-WEI-THU
ocean of Triple Gems, and by the power and strength of meeting auspicious

LU-MED TEN-DREL TSHOG-PEI NU-TOB-LE
and infallible concurrence. May my prayer be spontaneously

PAG-SAM SHING-TAR BED-MED DRUB-GYUR-CHIG
fulfilled like the wish-fulfilling tree.



The long-life supplication prayer was composed by H.H. Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche and translated into English by Sonam Choephel on 12th July, 1994 at Karma Kagyud Ling, H.H. Karmapa's main seat in Taiwan.
