May be I am the first layman to receive long life prayer.

Last year I was totally speechless to receive a long life prayer from H.E. Khenchen Lama Rinpoche who wrote the prayer at the secret Cave of Guru Rinpoche at Paro Taktsang. Mr. Erick Tsiknopoulos, a famous Tibetan to English translator, translated the same in English.

Well, I may not merit such prayer; nevertheless it is mind thought and appreciation of a Rinpoche who is true reincarnation of Padma Dagnag Lingpa after the request made by Khandro Rigdzin Yangchen Lhamo (that too also a bit mysterious). Padma Dagnag Lingpa was a reincarnation of Nupchen Sangye Yeshe, one of the five closest disciples of Guru Padmasambhava and the founder of the Yogi lineage of Tibetan BuddhismI am a true devotee of Guru Rinpoche.

Garland of Jewels: A Long Life Prayer for P’ub Dorjé Wangdü

And thus so it was that, on a positive date, the 8th day of the 6th month of the Earth Dog Year of the Sixty-Year Tibetan astrological cycle (rab gnas), in response to the request of Rigdzin Yangchen Lhamo (rig ‘dzin dbyangs can lha mo), this prayer of aspiration was made by Śrī Émaho, in the Secret Cave of the Guru [Padmasambhava], Taktsang (stag tshang, in Paro, Bhutan). May it be virtuous!

It was good fortune that I could able to locate Rinpoche and managed to get an audience.  Together with Terton Drukdra Dorje’s Yap (father) I have received the empowerment on རང་རིག་བླ་མའི་གསང་སྒྲུབ༔ RANGRIG LAMI SANGDRUD SECRET RIGPA GURU YOGA PRACTICE” and VIGRA KILIYA Practice from Rinpoche. Ever since I am practicing the teachings daily.
