om ah ma rani zi wen taye soha

The Buddha Amitayus, an aspect of the Buddha Amitabha, is associated with meditations and practices of long life. For centuries, Amitayus sādhanas have been offered in Tibet to support the longevity of beloved teachers and family members. When it is not possible to gather the means to make such an offering, accumulations of a million Amitayus Mantras are traditional. This is the short version of the Amitayus Mantra.

May our beloved guru Tarthang Rinpoche enjoy an exceptionally long life; may his Dharma activities continue to radiate blessings in all directions and all times; and may all beings benefit from the merit accumulated by this practice.
