HH Sakya Trizin’s Long Life Prayer

HH Sakya Trizin with personal signature

I think there are some readers here who have a dharma connection with HH Sakya Trizin, so anyway, I’d post this long life prayer here for this unparallelled Lord Protector of all beings in this degenerated age.  There is a longer prayer used by the Sakya centers, but here i post a condensed four-line prayer that is easy to memorise and recite.

NGA WANG GYU TRUL LHA RIG KHON GYI DUNG
Ngawang Kunga, Lineage of Khon, divine

DRO KUN GA ZED THEG CHEN DHO NGAG LAM
Giving benefit and joy to all, owner of Mahayana, sutra and mantra path

PHEN-DEY PAL TU BAR WAY TRIN LEY CHEN
Savior and liberator of all

SAM PHEL WANG GI GYAL PO SHAB TEN SOL
Wish-fulfilling, great king, please live long!

Please recite as much as you can. You can recite it after your daily prayers, after long life mantras/sutra recitations, after life liberations, or in order to dedicate your merits from giving food, medicine, and being vegetarian, etc.  Please pray hard that all enlightened masters who guide sentient beings and uphold the dharma like HH Sakya Trizin live long and are healthy, that their activities flourish and their aspirations and wishes are fulfilled perfectly.

In general, the source of all happiness comes from performing virtue and stopping non-virtue.  The main methods to accomplish this comes from listening, contemplating and meditating on the holy precious dharma.  The exposition and practice of dharma in turn largely depends on the upholding of the dharma by the Lords of Dharma such as HH Sakya Trizin and other great masters.  In other words, all the happiness in samsara and bliss in nirvana arises in dependence on the conditions of dharma continuing to exist in this world and since the main responsibilities for propagation of dharma lies on the shoulders of these great Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, we should always pray for their good health and fulfilment of their wishes.  It is a most direct way of ensuring that happiness remains on earth and that the darkness of wrongdoings, negative karma and afflictive emotions arising from selfishness such as anger is eliminated by the light rays of wisdom and compassion.  It is also of great benefit to each individual practitioner to pray in this way.
