Prayer for the Long Life of Sogyal Rinpoche by Tulku Thondup Rinpoche


The embodiment of all the buddhas, a treasury of wisdom, compassion and power,

Wisdom light of Amitabha, the Buddha of Infinite Radiance,

You who established the Dharma in the Land of Snows—

Guru Padmasambhava, we invoke you from the depths of our hearts.


In the past, when the golden meeting of Khenpo Shantarakshita, Guru Padmasambhava and the Dharma King Trisong Detsen took place,

It was you who made it possible. Then in hundreds of emanations,

As Rigdzin Gödem, Lerab Lingpa and others, you fulfilled beings’ needs with profound terma revelations—

Nanam Dorje Dudjom, to you we pray.


Now, in this golden age, when the sun of the Dharma of transmission and realization

Shines its brilliant light in every direction,

You are our protector, guiding us with a great variety of skillful means:

Sonam Gyaltsen, supreme among tulkus, may your life remain forever firm.


Through the compassion of the Three Jewels and all the root and lineage masters,

And the power of the absolute purity of the ultimate nature and the interdependent origination of phenomena,

May the lotus feet of this glorious master remain forever firm,

And may all his enlightened aspirations for the Dharma and beings be realized spontaneously.


This long life prayer for the supreme tulku Sogyal Rinpoche is offered by Tulku Thondup at the inspiration of some Dharma friends. May virtue abound!
