The Aspiration to be Reborn in the Pure Realm of Sukhavati (Tib. རྣམ་དག་བདེ་ཆེན་ཞིང་གི་སྨོན་ལམ་, Wyl. rnam dag bde chen zhing gi smon lam) aka Dechen Mönlam or Dé Mön (བདེ་སྨོན་, bde smon), by Karma Chakmé Rinpoche (aka Raga Asé) is perhaps the most famous aspiration prayer to be reborn in Sukhavati, the heaven of Amitabha, in the Tibetan tradition.
