from Lama Zopa Rinpoche:
"Dear Dharma Friends,
of you know, I had the good fortune to participate in a small KTD
audience with our Wish-Fulfilling Jewel, the Gyalwang Karmapa during the
Kagyu Monlam in Bodhgaya this past December. Over the years, there has
been great concern regarding the Karmapa's ability to travel in order to
perform his Dharma activites as the supreme holder of the lineage.
More recently, he mentioned on several occasions that he had not been
feeling well. After various medical examinations and tests, there is no
certainty about the cause of his sickness.
During our audience
with the Gyalwang Karmapa, I asked him what we could do to help remove
the obstacles to his buddha activity. He immediately replied, saying
that the Seven-Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche should be recited.
I began reciting the Seven-Line Prayer myself and asked some students at the Albany KTC recite the prayer as well.
After consulting with Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche about how best to
procede, I am sending this request on to other Dharma students with
shared karma and aspirations. As we are all followers of the peerless
holder of the Black Crown, the Buddha Karmapa, I ask you to join me in
accumulating many repetitions of the the Seven-Line Prayer.
It would be excellent if we could recite a hundred thousand prayers.
As this is the most renowned prayer to Guru Rinpoche as well as one of
the shortest, most of you will know it by heart or will at least have it
in among your prayers for personal practice.
For that reason, I thought it unecessary to include a copy of it here.
Please send weekly or monthly totals of the prayer to Mary Ann Duncun, firstname.lastname@example.org assistant director of Albany KTC.
It is fine to pass this prayer request along to other receptive Kagyu practitioners as appropriate.
Every single repetition of the Seven-Line Prayer is dedicated to the
long life and unhindered buddha activity of our Yizhin Norbu, the 17th
Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.
Specifically, we pray
that he may travel throughout the world without impediment, especially
to his monastic seats of Rumtek in Sikkim and Karma Triyana Dharmachakra
(KTD) in Woodstock, New York.
May he reside at ease at these seats for as for as long as he may wish, without the slightest difficulty.
As Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche himself prayed:
The embodiment of the compassion of all buddhas is Karmapa
The unified activity of all buddhas is Karmapa
The one empowered as the regent of all buddhas is Karmapa
Ogyen Drodul Trinley, may your life be long!
Yours in Dharma,
Karmapa Khenno ! Karmapa Khenno ! Karmapa Khenno ! "
