Guru Rinpoche Prayers
The Lakar matriarch Pema Tsering Wangmo tells the fascinating story of her family, renowned for its patronage of monasteries and teachers throughout Tibet. She recalls the legend of how the family received its name from the great Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa, and speaks about the most significant figures from the last few generations, including her own sister, Khandro Tsering Chödrön.
Long Life Prayers
This prayer for the long life of Sogyal Rinpoche was composed in 1995 in Māratika Cave, Nepal. At that time, Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche had completed a retreat focused on longevity and gave a long-life empowerment to Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche, Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche and Sogyal Rinpoche.
