Long Life Prayers

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!

Prayer for the Long Life of Alak Zenkar Rinpoche, the Incarnation of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje

OM SVASTI
TSA SUM CHINLAP TENJUNG LU MÉ TÜ
TUPTEN PEMÖI GATSAL GYÉPÉ NYEN
CHOK TRUL NYIMA SHYÖNNÜI SANGWA SUM
YONG DRUP TAKPÉ NGOWOR SHYUK SOL DEP

Om svasti!
Through the blessings of the three roots, and the power of the infallible law of interdependence,
May the secret body, speech and mind of this sun-like incarnation, Thubten Nyima,
The one who causes the lotus garden of buddha’s teachings to flourish and blossom,
Remain forever secure within the absolute and unchanging nature, we pray!

According to the requests of Sogyal Rinpoche, emanation of Nanam Dorje Dudjom, who was one of the five heart-sons of Guru Rinpoche with purest karmic fortune, and Pewar Rinpoche, who is like a beacon shining out the light of the teachings from a vast treasury of sutra, mantra and pith instructions, this was written together with prayers of aspiration, on the first day of the waxing phase of the moon in the month of Saga Dawa during the Fire Pig year, by Pema Wangchen Dorje, the one who holds the name of Kathok Rigdzin Chenpo. May virtue abound!
