Prayer for the Long Life of Neten Chokling Rinpoche
oṃ svasti! Padmasambhava—forefather of hundreds of accomplished vidyadharas— Yidam deities—magical manifestations of unchanging great bliss— And the assembly of vajra dharma-protectors and dakinis, Through your wondrous truth, may all be powerfully auspicious!
Custodian of the liberating instructions and ripening empowerments Of the Supreme Vehicle, the Kama and Terma of the Ancient Translations, Lord of scholars and sages—like the full moon rising bright above, May your life, awakened vision and activity reign victorious over all!
May the tradition of the Great Tertön, the King of Dharma, Holder of the seven special transmissions, Remain replete until the end of time, like a celebration from the Golden Age— The three worlds forever adorned by this auspicious flower of wondrous goodness!
Since the sons of the siddha together with some sangha members from Tenchok Gyurmé Ling requested me to offer a long life prayer using the name Rigdzin Gyurmé Dorjé bestowed by the embodiment of the victors of the three times, the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapa, I, Maṅgala Śrī Bhuti, a tantric practitioner who was touched by the nectar of Jamgön Khyentsé’s blessing, composed this prayer in the presence of the Kutsap Yizhin Norbu Ngödrup Palbar. May these aspirations come true!
