The following prayer for Ringu Tulku was composed by His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa 17th. it is recommended that this be recited daily, to protect Rinpoche, promote good health and ensure his long life.
" The most peaceful essence of clear light,
Arisen as the changeless form of illusion,
Free from any sign of age and decay,
May he live forever as the Buddha of long life"
Bob Whiteside of Ireland requested the Karmapa write this prayer at Bodhgaya during the 26th Kagyu Monlam, in the presence of a group of Irish Bodhicharya students. It was written on January 17th 2009 and presented to Rinpoche in Siliguri, India at that time.
