Prayer for the Long Life of Alak Zenkar Rinpoche

om svasti
rab jam tsé lha gya tsö’i chin tü lé
khyen tsé yeshé dorjé si pé gar
tub ten nyi mé tsen chen shyab zung ten
ten dror men pé shyé dön yong drup shok

Om Svasti!
Through the power and blessings of an infinite ocean of long-life deities,
May the life of this emanation of Khyentse Yeshe Dorje,
The one named ‘Sun of the Buddha’s Teachings’, Thubten Nyima,
Remain secure, and may all his aspirations for the benefit of the teachings and beings be fulfilled.

According to the requests of Sogyal Rinpoche and the Rigpa Sangha in Lerab Ling, made together with the support of an offering, and out of my own feelings of devotion and inspiration, I, the one named Ngawang Chökyi Lodrö, who bears only the outward signs of a buddhist monk, made this aspiration and wrote it down on the 6th day of the 10th month of the Wood Bird year (7th December 2005). Jayantu!
