A Profound Doha Composed by the 16th Karmapa and Sung by the 12th Tai Situpa - We Will Wake Up
July 27, 2017
On this very auspicious day of turning the first wheel of Dharma by Lord Buddha (Chokor Duchen), I decide to release this special and profound doha (song of realization) written by His Holiness the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa describing his yearning to meet his Guru Tai Situpa again and again by the blessing of Mother White Tara. It is sung by Guru Vajradhara when he returned back to the residence after the recent surgery.
May everyone be liberated from the suffering of samsara and attain the ultimate happiness and joy by hearing this profound and blessed melody. This is the sincere aspiration of Tenam.
The English translation of the lyrics is taken from the book “Dharma King – The Life of the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa in Images”
