A Prayer for the Long Life of the Guru

 by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö


OM SVASTI

OM: May it be auspicious!

NGAK LA WANG GYUR SHEY-JA T’HAM-CHAY KHYEN

Master over speech, you understand all fields of knowledge,

LOB-ZANG GYEL-WAY RING-LUK NYIN-MOR JEY

Of excellent intellect, you illuminate the tradition of the Victorious One,

GANG-CHEN TEN-DZIN GYEL TS’HO’I TSUK-GYEN CHHOK

Among the ocean of victorious holders of the Teachings in the Land of Snows, you are the supreme crown ornament:

ZHAP PAY SI T’HAY BAR-DU ZHUK SOL-DEP

I pray that your lotus feet abide until the end of conditioned existence.

 

P’HAK NOR RIN-CHHEN DUN GYII NGON-PAR T’HO

With the seven precious riches of the noble ones are you eminently exalted,

CHHO KYI GYAL-PO SI SUM WANG GYUR WA

King of Dharma, you hold sway over the three planes of conditioned existence:

DZAM-LING TEN-PAY DAK-PO ZHAP-TEN SOL

Ruler of the Teachings in this world, I pray that your exalted feet remain firm.

 

DRO-WAY LA-MA TS’HUNG-PA-MEY-PAY GON

Guru of wandering beings, incomparable lord protector,

CHHOK GI SANG SUM ZI-JI RAP T’HRO-WAY

Through the intense radiance from the overwhelming brilliance of your three secrets supreme,

CHHO NOR DO T’HAR DE ZHI’I PEL YON GYAY

May the majestic qualities of the fourfold abundance of Dharma, wealth, aspirations, and freedom thrive,

TEN-PA RIN-CHHEN DAR ZHING GYAY-PAR SHOK

And may the precious Teachings flourish and bloom!

 

This was composed by Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö.
