Longevity Songs for Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
Concise longevity song for Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
composed by Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche
Ocean conquerers, Triple Jewels and the Triple Roots,
Bless the great Dharma Sun for the Kagyu and the Nyingma lines,
May your threefold secrets be forever firm,
To fulfill every wish for the teachings and the beings' well.
Extensive longevity song for Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
composed by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche
Timeless wakefulness of changeless greatest ease,
Fully manifest graceful form of deathless vajra youth,
Noble Tara, let your wishfulfilling wheel,
Shower here constantly vast and splendid immortality.
Through lord Lokeshvara, the glorious Karmapa's
Wondrous wishing-force, like a forest stream of stable mind,
Mighty wishgranting tree, beautifying others' aims,
Matchless buddha son, may your life-force be forever firm.
Lotus ponds of insights and words in sutras and tantras
Blossom through the light of your teachings and accomplishments.
Secret and sublime, Dharma Sun of true intent,
Slaying darkness of wrong views, may your life-force be forever firm.
Your stream of deeds leads to freedom everyone you meet.
Never it ends, touching each and every land on Earth.
For all beings and all teachings, without partiality,
Our sublime guardian, may your life-force be forever firm.
Noble guide, may you live for hundred sets of cosmic time,
Sounding Dharma tones of true intent to fill the world,
Like the fruits in autumn, let the Practice Lineage bloom,
So the good Golden Age blossoms with auspiciousness.
Translated to be sung with an original tune for longevity, by Erik Pema Kunsang, Amber Palace, 2014. Performed by Sascha Alexandra Aurora.
