Supplication for the Longevity of the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa, written by His Holiness Sakya Trinzin
Emanation of the sixth Guide of Beings in this Fortunate Eon and of the great Siddha Saraha, the seventeenth incarnation of Düsum Khyenpa, may your lotus feet stand firm and your activity increase.
You see just as it is the very nature of all phenomena to be known and through your love, you act as refuge of all beings. Through your power you are victorious over the maras. May your lotus feet stand firm and your activity increase.
The illumination of your activity, derived from your accumulated merit and wisdom, developed in full array, causes the forest of lotuses of the Doctrine of the Glorious One to flourish. Moon of the speech of the Pure Dharma, may your lotus feet stand firm and your activity increase.
You are the main teacher of hundreds of thousands of renunciates, the father of a million bodhisattvas, and the great master of countless vidyadharas. May your lotus feet stand firm and your activity increase.
You plant the banner of victory of the teaching in this world. The flag of your renown is unfurled in all quarters. Lord of the activity of the Glorious Ones, Karmapa, may your lotus feet stand firm and your activity increase.
You who spreads the teaching of the King of Sages and are the protector of beings in this time of degeneracy, emanation of the Lord of the World, Chenrezig, Karmapa, may your lotus feet stand firm and your activity increase.
May these prayers be accomplished through the interdependent vows of the supreme guide, the Holy Lama, the truth of the authentic Three Jewels, and our own pure, excellent wish.
In accordance with the wishes of the lord protectors, the supreme Tai Situ Rinpoche and the supreme Tsurphu Gyaltsab Rinpoche, this aspiration was made by Ngawang Kunga of Drolma Podrang, the throne holder of the glorious Sakyas as an alteration of a previous composition. May this aspiration be accomplished. Written in 1992.
