Long life prayer for Jigme Rinpoche

August 15, 2016

Lama Jigme Rinpoche is the General Secretary for Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa.

Jigme Rinpoche was raised and educated by Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, among many eminent teachers of the Kagyu lineage. The 16th Karmapa designated Jigme Rinpoche as head of Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in France, his European seat, where he continues to this day. In making this appointment, the 16th Karmapa said ‘In the person of Jigme Rinpoche, I give you my heart.’

On the occasion of Jigme Rinpoche’s birthday, 15 August, and to support Rinpoche’s vast and beneficial activity in Europe and around the world, Karmapa has composed a long-life prayer for him.

Karmapa requests that all his students recite the long-life prayer.
