Long Life Prayer (Hosted by Guhyasamaja Center)

From October 03, 11:00 am until 12:30 pm


Guhyasamaja Center is overjoyed to help host a Long Life Puja on Saturday, October 3rd.  Please join us for this special event!

We will be joining with other centers with students of Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa to do a long life puja dedicated to the long life and success of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche, and our other lamas!  It is said that doing practices dedicated to the long lives of our teachers not only serves as a cause for continuing to be cared for by them but is also a supreme method for accumulating vast positive karma.  His Holiness and Khensur Rinpoche are now in their 80’s and continue teaching regularly; this is a chance to support their compassionate efforts through joining together to accumulate the causes for them to continue their compassionate activities!

A number of centers have been gathering on the first Saturday of each month to do such pujas based upon the Puja to the 16 Arhats, a practice traditionally done for this purpose.  On October 3rd, anyone interested in welcome to join!  Geshe Lobsang Dhargey will lead us in chanting the relevant prayers in Tibetan.  


May the glorious lamas live long.
May happiness and well-being arise for all sentient beings, present throughout space.
May I and all beings without exception, having gathered the two accumulations and purified the two obscurations,
be swiftly established in the state of buddhahood.

As we wish for the above, we are organizing Long Life prayers for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Rinpoche every month. We encourage all of Rinpoche’s students and all who are connected through DNKL to join in this Long Life Prayer. We know that you can do prayers in your dharma center and also in your home but all sangha members gathering together will be more effective to the prayer’s intent. Also, we know that doing Long Life Prayer is Guru Devotion Practice.

Many of the great masters have said that doing Long Life Prayer for your Guru is the best way to accumulate merit and purification practice. We think this is not late, but a very good time to do this Long Life Prayer as both His Holiness and Rinpoche are having a lot of dharma activities and they are in their older years. We hope all of you can join in these prayers every first Saturday of each month from 11:00AM-12:30PM EST.
