Prayers of the Three Long Life Deities is a text that we recite each Sunday at the end of Chenrezi. This book includes short prayers for the three long life deities: Amitayus, Usnisavijaya, and White Tara. Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho Sakya will tell us more about the prayers in this book, and their significance for our own lives.
Her Eminence Dagyum Kusho Sakya, also known as H.E. Dagmo Kusho, was born in Kham, Eastern Tibet. As the niece of one of the most highly realized Sakya Masters of the twentieth century, H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche III, her training in Buddhist practice began at an early age. She has received extensive teachings and empowerments from many great lamas of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism throughout her lifetime. Dagyum Kusho is the wife of H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Dorje Chang of the Khön lineage, a Head Lama of the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism. She is currently the Acting Head Lama of the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Seattle, Washingon. Dagyum Kusho specializes in Tara empowerments, practices, and teachings, and has many students throughout the world.
