Shamar Rinpoche teaching in London, 3 June 2014

On Tuesday 3 June 2014, the London Diamond Way Buddhist Centre welcomed the 14th Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche. Shamar Rinpoche is second to Gyalwa Karmapa in the spiritual hierarchy of the Karma Kagyu School, and is an emanation of Buddha Amitabha. The Shamarpas are referred to as the “Red Hat Karmapas” since the 4th Karmapa Rolpe Dorje presented a ruby red crown to the second Shamarpa, saying, “You are the one manifestation, while I am the other. Therefore, the responsibility to maintain the continuity of the teachings of the Kagyu lineage rests equally on you as it does on me.” The present Shamar Rinpoche received the complete teachings and transmissions of the Karma Kagyu School from the 16th Karmapa at Rumtek monastery in Sikkim. In 1994 in accordance with Karma Kagyu tradition, he officially recognised and enthroned Trinley Thaye Dorje as the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa.

Long-Life wishes for H.H. 17th Karmapa Thaye Dorje
Composed by Shamar Rinpoche

Several eons ago you made a vow to strive for the benefit of countless beings, taught the words of truth and made deep wishes.

You have never abandoned them, and the power of the two accumulations gained throughout your rebirths have ripened as your present emanation. May you live long.

You hold the essential and skilful methods of guidance in your hands, and through your wisdom, ability and love you flood the realm of sentient beings with the teachings of the Buddha Dharma.

Master of Dharma may you have a long life.

You are the bearer of the continuous activity of the excellent Dusum Khyenpa, you possess the profound, all surpassing stream of nectar of the great teacher Naropa’s Mahamudra teachings. May you live long.

May the power of the truth of dedication prayers in front of the ocean of the Three Mighty Jewels and the power of the inevitable interdependence, just like the wish fulfilling tree, may these wishes be realised effortlessly.
