The Music of Immortality: A Prayer for the Long Life of H.H. the 17th Incarnation of Gyalwa Karmapa, Urgyen Trinley Dorje




Om Svasti Siddham

Wondrous, excellent wisdom body,
Endowed with the glorious ocean of qualities
of freedom and ripening,
Karmapa, embodiment of all the Victors of the three times,
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.

The energy of your wisdom issues forth from the Dharmadhatu.
You display wondrous, intentional rebirth
Dharma Lord of the three realms,
you are unequalled in the three times.
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.

You place all who see, hear, touch, or think of you
on the path to liberation.
You blaze with majestic wisdom, kindness, and power.
You dispel the darkness in the three levels of existence
And radiate a thousand light rays of virtue and excellence.
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.

You are adorned by the three trainings and pure morality.
Your being is fully ripened through learning, nobility, benevolence,
And hearing, contemplation, and meditation.
You are able to liberate others.
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.

You fill the whole world with the nonsectarian doctrine,
And especially the stainless Dharma tradition
of the practice lineage.
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.

Although you display innumerable oceans of
inconceivably wondrous miraculous forms,
You are beyond the elaborations of "leaving" and "remaining."
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.

In brief, glorious guru, Gyalwang Karmapa,
Pervasive lord of the hundred families and all mandalas,
May your lotus feet remain firm; may your activity increase.
May your activity reach everywhere.

If you are supplicated with such respect and longing, then,
Through the intentions of the three roots
And the ocean of victors,
And through the power of the truth of the pure Dharmadata,
May these excellent aspirations be quickly fulfilled.



This pure aspiration was composed by H.E. Tai Situpa, transforming a rebirth supplication for the previous Lord into supplication for the longevity of H.H. the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa, in response to the request by offering of Tashi Lhadar, the custodian of Rumtek Shedra.
