Long Life Prayer for the 10th Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche written by HH the 16th Karmapa

This long life prayer for the 10th Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche was written by 
His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje in Rumtek.
May this bring great benefit!

Homage to the Guru!
From the expanse of primordial, pure Dharmakaya
effortless continuation of the body arises
to accomplish the buddha’s activity,
to benefit the ocean-like number of beings filling the space
and to clear away the two obscurations and their habitual tendencies.

From the space of unconditional truth,
you expose the essence of Buddha Dharma
in order to tame beings. Hence you are the sun that shines
and brightens the practice lineage.
Supreme Nirmanakaya, may you live long!

Your wisdom is even greater than that of Mikyo Dorje ;
the purity of holding the monastic vow is the same as that of the
Victorius Dharma Kirti ; 
when you bring up your devotees with great kindness,
you are like Dudul Dorje ;
being all three of them in one, your voice reaches above, below
and on earth like a thunder.
Whoever hears it, obtains auspicious, excellant wisdom.
Supreme Nirmanakaya, may you live long!

From the Sutras, Tantras and the all-inclusive ocean of phenomena,
Mandalas, the union of E-vam (wisdom and skillful means) and
the basis of the generation and the completion stages arise.
The inseparability of apperance and mind is Vajrasattva ;
being the embodiment of all these, and possessing all
the above qualities, you are the absolute Protector.
Supreme, sun-like Nirmanakaya, may you live long!

By the power of the truth of all Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas,
through the energy and ocean-like blessings of the Kagyu,
and due to the auspicious words of aspirations made by Gurus,
Yidams and Protectors,
may you, the incomparable sun-like Nirmanakaya, live long!
