Vasubandhu’s Verses on the Treasury of Abhidharma with Commentary by the 9th Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje
རྐྱེན་ཟློག་སྨོན་ལམ་ཆེན་མོ།
Compiled by the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje
Translation: Khenpo David Karma Choephel

This book is a compilation of prayers selected by the Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje specifically for the Aspirations to End Adversity program of online prayers held in January, 2021. These prayers are to remove adversity and obstacles for all beings and particularly for dharma practitioners.

It includes:

  • The Gyalwang Karmapa’s new translation from Chinese of the Sutra of the Dharani of Marichi
  • The terma supplication to Guru Rinpoche revealed by Tulku Bakal Mukpo Clearing the Path of Obstacles
  • Tulku Sangpo Drakpa’s terma Spontaneous Fulfillment of Wishes
  • A slightly different recension of Karma Chakme’s Practice of White Parasol
  • Dharanis and sutras of Amitayus, the Medicine Buddha, and other buddhas and deities, with the mantras corrected against Sanskrit manuscripts
  • Other commonly recited prayers

This prayer book is the product of extensive research and consideration by the Gyalwang Karmapa, and we hope that it will inspire faith and enthusiasm among its readers.
