His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Long Life Prayer


O our gurus, and your line of lamas, for whom we have the deepest gratitude, You who are the repository of the three: secret powers of body, speech, and mind of innumerable buddhas, Who manifest in a miraculous way to each devotee according to his capacity, To you, who are the wish-fulfilling gems, the source of all virtues and good qualities, We offer our prayers with intense devotion That our protector of the great Land of Snows, Tenzin Gyatso, upholder of the Dharma, the great ocean, May live for a hundred eons.
