We now have Long Life Prayers for our Geshes!

Find the long life prayers HERE.

One of the ways we can honor our teachers and deepen our connection to them is by saying prayers for their long lives.

Many teachers have a long life prayer composed for them, so Kadampa Center made a request to Geshe Gelek's teacher, Khensur Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Delek to have a prayer for Geshe-la.

Khensur Rinpoche recommended that we recite at least 200,000 Tara mantras annually and dedicate them to Geshe Gelek's long life.

In 2016, we also requested advice about a long life prayer for Geshe Sangpo, who is also a student of Khensur Rinpoche, and his advice was to expand our dedication to include Geshe Sangpo.

 We will be reciting these regularly at the Center, and invite those who feel a close connection to Geshe Gelek and Geshe Sangpo to recite mantras on their own.
