As an offering to the lama on Guru Rinpoche day, here is a brand new English translation of the ‘Long-Life Prayer for HE 10th Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche’, composed by HH 16th Karmapa, Rigpe Dorje. Initially written as a ‘Swift Aspiration Prayer’ it was subsequently converted into a ‘Long-Life Aspiration’ when the 10th Sangye Nyenpa was around four years old. It is recited daily in Benchen monasteries in Tibet and Nepal.
A Long-Life Prayer was also composed for Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche by HH 17th Karmapa, Orgyen Trinley Dorje. This will also be posted here in English soon.
