Om swasti Through the power and blessing of Padmasambhava, who has attained the deathless wisdom body, and
jetsün nyur ma palmöi tu jin gyi
The Glorious Tara, swift to act,

May the incarnation of ‘the King of Merit’, the great Tertön Sogyal
shyap zung tak ten trinlé tar chin shok
Enjoy a life that is secure and long; may all his enlightened activities be completely fulfilled!
On behalf of the matchless Sogyal Rinpoche, the glorious protector of the Vajrayana teachings and all beings—especially in the West—the Buddhist monk Shadeupa Trulshik Ngawang Chökyi Lodrö composed this long life prayer in a single verse, along with his heartfelt wish that it be accomplished! Composed by Kyabjé Trulshik Rinpoche at the Maratika cave in Nepal, where Guru Rinpoche and Mandarava were empowered by Amitayus, Buddha of Limitless Life, and achieved the state of ‘vidyadhara with control over life’ or ‘immortal vidyadhara’.
