A Prayer for the Long Life of the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa, written by His Holiness Minling Trichen
Ultimate guide, the Three Secrets of the Accomplished Ones incarnate,
Regent of the Glorious Ones of the three times, protector of sentient beings,
sole refuge, perpetual and unfailing, foremost of the Three Jewels,
unequalled self-manifestation of the compassion of all the Glorious Ones,
may you remain unchanging in perfect health for a hundred eons!
Supreme Mountain, abiding continually for the disciples of this world,
having completely crossed the ocean of Dharma of the Three Vehicles,
unfurl the Victory Banner of the doctrine of the superior vehicle,
on the summit of the King of Mountains,
never sinking, extending over all.
