Yongdzin Rinpoche’s explanation of Tsewang Rigdzin’s Long-life mantra
Dear friends and sangha, You have probably already heard that Yongdzin Rinpoche, who is now 96, has been unwell for a few days. As his students, we have been asked to recite the long-life mantra of Tsewang Rigdzin:
SO DRUM A KAR MU LA TING NAM WÖ DU MU YE TSE NRI DZA
To help us all with this practice, we are sharing Yongdzin Rinpoche’s own explanation of the mantra, which he gave in December, 2009 as part of the consecration of the first stupa built in Shenten Dargye Ling, France.
