which is known as 'Melodious Diamond: The Truthful Prayer of the Sages'
Jam pal pa wo'i pop pay ter chen tshok / yang chen gah may chik tu pung pay chee / ten pa'i chi nor see mun drung jin pay / thek chen cho kyi nyi ma tsho shay sol
Hero Manjushri great wisdom mine / shines the heap of brightest joyous light / collective wealth dispels world's darkness. / Sun of Mahayana, please live long!
Jam pay pal go'i tse way ge sar chen / mik me nying jey yal dab bol way troe / zab gu'i khyen tok dab tong god pa'i phul / nam dren je way tsuk gyen tsho shay sol
Endow loving-kindness glorious seed / sprouts the tree of boundless compassion / blossom thousand petals of knowledge. / Crown of many guides you, please live long!
Choe nyi kun tok nang cha ji nye tsok / shen wang dhen soom kyil khor rol mor char / choe nyi yong drub de chen ye she kyi / don ton soong sang dzin pa tsho shay sol
All the thoughts of conceivable things / raise dependent mandala's deities / accomplishment of blissful wisdom. / Showing sacred meaning, please live long!
Tshok nyi nor dzin mar may kye sing pay / nam soom tim kyi nor bu'i kang thung chok / don nyi dre wu'i yur za khur dhen ku / mi shik dor je'i choe doon drub par mon
Nourished by the wealth of two great heaps / tree with gems of moral conduct three / laden with the fruit of dual meanings / become diamond's qualities we pray!
Tse chik sol way ma la ya loong gi / je tse'i tin ngon phung po yo wa lay / drub nyee du tsi'i thoe treng pheb pa dang / ku zhi'i dre sang chog gi min pa tsol
By the wind of the sincere prayers / cause your clouds of compassion to rise / rain the nectar drops of two siddhis / bestow the good fruit of four kayas!
This long life prayer was composed by Sharpa Khenpo, named "Manju", in order to fulfil the wishes of the faithful devotees of the object of these supplications. May this bear fruit! This metered translation was prepared by Tsharpa Lochen Lama Choedak Rinpoche with the assistance of Rinchen Choezom on the auspicious occasion of His Eminence Luding Khenchen Rinpoche's visit to Australia in April 2004.
