Prayers for Lama Zopa Rinpoche

About the Puja

Khadro-la has advised students to offer practices dedicated for Rinpoche’s good health, specifically to recite refuge and bodhicitta prayers.

Every year FPMT CEO Ven. Roger Kunsang, on behalf of the FPMT organisation, checks with Khandro-la (Khandro Kunga Bhuma) to determine what practices should be done to help create the conditions Lama Zopa Rinpoche, to have a long life and good health for the coming year. In addition to the pujas and practices already advised, Khandro-la’s recent observation is that there are still obstacles to Rinpoche’s health.

Ven. Roger shares: “Khandro-la is therefore strongly advising students to continue to offer practices dedicated for Rinpoche’s good health, and now specifically to recite refuge and bodhichitta prayers. We sincerely request students to start this now or as soon as possible, and to continue over the coming two months. Individual students can offer this practice themselves, and we encourage centres to organise group practice sessions for this.”

While Vajrayana Institute encourages everyone to commence this practice at home we will also be hosting weekly group recitations of prayers and mantras with strong dedications for Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s health and very long life.

Join us to recite prayers and mantras for Rinpoche’s health and long life each Tuesday evening at 6pm.

Taking Refuge and Generating Bodhichitta
Sang gyä chhö dang tshog kyi chhog nam la
Jang chhub bar du dag ni kyab su chhi
Dag gi jin sog gyi päi tshog nam kyi
Dro la phän chhir sang gyä drub par shog (3x)

I take refuge until I am enlightened
In the Buddha, the Dharma and the Supreme Assembly.
By my merits of generosity and so forth,
May I become a buddha to benefit transmigratory beings.
