Long Life Prayer for HH the Dalai Lama



All Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions and the three times,

here You are assembled in the world mandala.

I step before You full of joy and trust and ask You to hear me:

The Bodhisattva CHENREZIG has manifested Himself

as master and protector of the Snowland Tibet,

in order to pass on the teachings of Lord Buddha

and to stand by all sentient beings

on their way to enlightenment and attainment of all realizations.

Great Ocean of Wisdom,

Manifestation of the compassionate CHENREZIG, Avalokiteshvara,

XIV. Dalai Lama Jampel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso,

Crown Jewel Yid Shin Norbu, Kundun-Khong:

Your nature is the compassion of all Buddhas of the three times.

I bow before You!

You have accumulated in You all positive qualities

and You are the source of our joy and our good fortune.

As long as the universe exists, as long as the living lives,

You hasten here whenever a sentient being calls Your name.

With Your great compassion

You appear in various manifestations

and awaken sentient beings from the dream of illusion.

You transform all sadness, joylessness, sorrows and pain

into helpful kindness, power and enlightenment.

You are our hope, our refuge, our arrival, our home.

You are our teacher, our consort, father and mother,

brother and sister, son and daughter,

according to the need of sentient beings.

You are the hand which holds and leads us,

until our mind is freed from ignorance,

and You remove the other two obstacles.

You develop divine compassion in our three bodies

and guide us to the wisdom of perfect enlightenment.

You have the means, in one moment

to transmit to us the state of great bliss,

the highest state of the three bodies.

You  generate radiant splendour

and develop spontaneously Your unsurpassed Buddha-activities.

You combine the essences and offer the secret jewels.

You unite sun and moon,

and even light the stars from the innermost depths of Your eyes.

You present Yourself as a rainbow and mirror all colours of the union.

Your smile shines from Your three bodies

and You transform the powers of the universe

into the clear light of the world mandala.

Oh, You Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the ten directions and the three times,

You have heard the excellent qualities of the noble Dalai Lama: 

I ask You:

Protect and guard the great embodiment of compassion, the Dalai Lama,

CHENREZIG, Kundun-Khong, and grant Him Your blessings!                   

May He enjoy a long life

and may He dwell in this body yet 100 times 100 aeons!

May He in this or in another manifestation

today and in all three times and in all realities

turn the need of all sentient beings,

and lead them to enlightenment and to all realizations!


This Prayer was composed by Barbara Hausjell (Dolma Lhamo)

CHENREZIG-HAUS, Vienna, Austria, on July 6th, 1999, the birthday of His Holiness the XIV. Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso from Tibet, who is at time living in exile in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh, India.

May All Beings Be Happy!
