His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa: Call to Pray for all Masters

We all know that for the dharma to flourish in this world, we rely on our spiritual guides to show us the way. In gratitude, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa has asked us to pray for all masters. He requested that we recite the “Heart of Interdependence” mantra and dedicate it to their long lives.

This post includes three items:

  1. Official Letter from KTD President Khenpo Karma Tenkyong explaining the initiative, and letting us know where to send the mantras by the deadline: noon, February 8, 2016.
  2. A sound file of the Dharani.
  3. The printed mantra in Tibetan, transliterated English, Chinese, and an English-language translation.
