Vajra Vidya Institute Anthem – Sarnath, March 2011



The Vajra Vidya Anthem was composed by H.H. the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa Orgyen Dorje at the request of Khenpo Lobzang Tenzdin on the anniversary of Milarepa’s passing, March 17th 2011.


Midst a retinue of eighty thousand gods and humans,
The protector Shakyamuni discoursed at this place,
Turning the Dharma Wheel of the four truths
At the Deer Park, this blessed and auspicious ground.

Here at this seat of our forefathers, the Kagyu lamas,
Shines the sun of Dharma, sutra and tantra in union.
A thousand lotus petals of learning blossom forth; prayers and activity
For the flourishing of all Buddha’s teachings converge here.

Each and every compassionate intention
Of the lord and lama Rigpe Dorje
Is accomplished at all times, day and night.
May this auspicious glory fill the entire world!
