Refuge Prayer in Tibetan 

# 1.jpg

This is an excerpt from “Chariots of Deliverance – The Supreme Path” written by the 7th Karmapa Chodrak Gyatso (1454-1506).

This version was translated thanks to the efforts of Ven. Lama Samten and his early students, early 1980’s, in New Zealand. For that, I am eternally thankful.

Thanks for listening.

Base audio recorded in late August 2001 at Karma Choeling Tibetan Buddhist Monastery near Auckland, NZ led by Ven. Lama Karma Samten.

I would like to offer a special “Thank You” to Ven. Lama Samten and his early students in New Zealand for translating this powerful text.

Also thanks to Tsem Tulku Rinpoche's website for the fine Buddhist artwork

And especially to HH Karmapa!

Blessings to All!
