During a long life puja at Amitabha Buddhist Centre, Singapore, for Lama Zopa Rinpoche on March 13, 2016, Ven. Holly Ansett offered a beautiful long life prayer composed by Rangjung Neljorma Khadro Namsel Drönme (Khadro-la). We are pleased to make this prayer available in a variety of languages, including the newly revised English with Tibetan phonetics and Tibetan script

As a reminder, Khadro-la recently advised that students of Lama Zopa Rinpoche are requested to offer recitations of the Vajra Cutter Sutra and the Dependent Arising: A Praise of the Buddha (Tendrel Topa) for Rinpoche’s long life. FPMT International Office has requested everyone to join in and keep track of their recitations of these prayers during the rest of this Tibetan year so that the total number of recitations can be offered to Rinpoche. 

Through comprehensive study programspractice materialstraining seminars, and scholarships, FPMT Education nourishes the development of compassion, wisdom, kindness, and true happiness in individuals of all ages.
