The XVI. Karmapa and the XIV. Shamarpa

Like a swiftly approaching sunrise, the reincarnation of the all-knowing holder of the Red Crown, Mipham Chökyi Lodrö, is soon to appear. With the fervent aspiration that he may live long, that his activity may flourish, and that by the power of this, the teachings of the Practice Lineage of the Karma Kamtsang may be united, the two of us, known as Ogyen Trinley and Thaye Dorje, have written this prayer together. We have concluded it with the true words of Gyalwang Mikyö Dorje adorning it as the final stanza. May this work aid in spreading the teachings and bringing happiness to beings, and may the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas make it so.

Written in Europe on the twenty-second day of the eighth Tibetan month of the female Year of the Pig, 20 October 2019.

A Long Life Prayer for Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche’s reincarnation.

In the dharma expanse, the broad sky

 of unchanging bliss and emptiness,

She grants the glory of life,

 the pure essence of peace and existence,

Through the display of the unceasing

 magical net.

May the Bhagavati Tara Wish-Fulfilling Wheel

 grant auspiciousness!

You possess the trove of secrets

 of body, speech, and mind

Of the Karmapa, who embodies

 the activity of all victors.

You are the nirmanakaya

 Mipham Gargyi Wangchuk,

The teacher and student inseparable –

 may you live long!

May the pith instructions of the true lineage

 of realization flow into your mind.

May you be rich in the ocean of qualities

 of both study and practice.

May you ripen and liberate beings

 who see, hear, or remember you.

May you live long as the guru,

 meaningful to all who make a connection.

May I, in this birth and in all my lives,

Follow the Karmapa and his heart sons inseparably,

Accomplish all my intentions according to the dharma,

And ultimately merge my mind with theirs as one.
