His Holiness the Dalai Lama recently composed a prayer for Choden Rinpoche’s reincarnation to swiftly return for the benefit of beings. Here is information shared by Rinpoche’s Labrang, as well as a link for reading the prayer:

Dearest Friends,

We have some wonderful, some most incredible news to share. Geshe Gyalten in his last Audience with His Holiness Dalai Lama and on behalf of Choden Labrang, Sera Jey Lhopa Khangtsen, all the people (Monks and Lay) of Kham Rangpo region, Awakening Vajra and all the students of Rinpoche around the world, made a request for a prayer for Rinpoche’s swift return.

Out of his great kindness, love and care HH Dalai Lama composed this prayer for Rinpoches swift return. This prayer was given to Geshe Gyalten during the long life offering to HH Dalai Lama at Dharamsala on the very auspicious day of Buddha’s descending down to this earth from heaven.

On the day of Lhabab Duechen occasion (buddha’s descent from the heavenly realm of thirty three), HH the Dalai Lama kindly offered Geshe Gyalten the words of prayers for HE Choden rinpoche’s swift return on this earth. He felt an extraordinary sense of joy as the day for receiving the prayer text had fallen on such an auspicious day as Lhabab Duechen. It is a most wondrous of signs. May HE Choden Rinpoche’s reincarnation make a swift return to spread the teachings of dharma and to continue to benefit sentient beings.

Geshe Gyalten kindly requests that all the concerned monasteries, organizations, dharma centers and devoted students of Rinpoche, recite this most holy of prayers for the swift reincarnation for our Dear and Precious Guru HE Choden Rinpoche, daily.

Much love from Geshe Gyalten and Choden Labrang,
