Prayer for the Long Life of Tertön Sogyal Rinpoche composed by Kathok Rigdzin Chenpo
om svasti chö nyi den dang tsa sum tukjéi tü
tso kyé sang sum dö gar lerab ling
sonam gyaltsen ku tsé wang tang kun
The magical display of the lake-born buddha’s secret body, speech and mind,
dorjei lhunpo ji shyin tak ten sol
Remain forever stable and firm, like a vajra mountain!
To ensure that the physical life of this great master may remain stable in the indestructible vajra nature and his enlightened activity spread in every direction like the light of a hundred thousand suns, I, the one who holds the name of Kathok Rigdzin Chenpo, Pema Wangchen Dorje, made this heartfelt aspiration, according to the request of Kyabjé Alak Zenkar Rinpoche, on an auspicious day during the second month of the Wood Bird year. May it be accomplished!
