Request to Recite Karmapa Khyenno for the removal of Obstacles for HH Karmapa and the Kagyu Lineage

His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche requested the following:

“Due to various hindrances H.H. Karmapa has been encountering recently, Kagyu Lineage has faced one of the worst obstacles unheard of in its history; H.E. Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche therefore instructed for all to chant “Karmapa Khyenno” contributing to the removal of hindrances against HHK’s retreat and obstacles against the lineage, as well as to pray for HHK’s return to Rumtek Monastery, longevity of all genuine Gurus from all lineages and their continuous turning the wheel of Dharma. With this merit, we dedicate to world peace, as well as the ultimate happiness and liberation of all mother-like sentient beings.”

The 100 Million Karmapa Khyenno recitation and accumulation period started on the 3rd of May and will continue to the 7th of October.

Samye Ling will be keeping a count of mantras and we therefore ask practitioners at the Samye Dzongs to send your mantras to mantras@samyeling.org which we will forward to the organisers on your behalf.


Please see the original letter from His Eminence Gyaltsab Rinpoche below:

Dedication prayer for 100 Million Mantra Recitation Puja

By the compassion of ocean-vast buddhas, the rare and supreme ones, 
By the authentic power of the dharmapalas who protect all virtuous activities,
May (this) activity in accordance with dharma accomplish properly, and 
By the merits thus accumulated, may happiness pervades all sentient beings.
