Prayers and mantras for our Teachers' long lives

We honor our teachers and deepen our connection to them by praying for their long lives or their swift return. 

You can find long-life and swift return prayers for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Delek and our Geshes HERE.

At Kadampa Center's request, our Geshes' teacher, Khensur Rinpoche, recommended we say 200,000 Green Tara mantras each year for our teachers' long lives. We recite the mantra regularly at the Center, and invite those who feel a close connection to Geshe Gelek and Geshe Sangpo to join in!

Our total Tara mantras counted as of December 31, 2023:  2,151,676
