Diamond of Vajra: A Long Life Prayer for the Venerable Elder Chao Khun Phratep Siddhivides of Wat Ananda Metyarama Thai Buddhist Temple, by Khenchen Lama Pelgyeypa Dorjé Rinpoché

…in the Thai Theravāda Buddhist monastery of Singapore which is widely known as Wat Ananda Metyarama Thai Buddhist Temple, Khenchen Lama Rinpoché, or Śrī Nanda Vajra, on that very spot, composed an aspiration of good wishes for the stability of the Three Secrets (of body, speech and mind) of their sublime Dharma teacher (the Venerable Elder Chao Kun Phratep Siddhivides). Thus I pray that the Victorious Ones together with their Bodhisattva Heirs, throughout all directions and times, may accomplish this accordingly!
