Long Life Prayer
During the Chenrezi retreat course Lama Jigme Rinpoche gave in Dhagpo Kagyu Ling, he recommended to do the Long Life Prayer for Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, because it would not only be good for the long life of Karmapa but also for ourselves. Rinpoche then also recommended reciting a special sutra about longevity to remove hindrances for ourselves and for others.
