The Gate of Entry Into the Limitless Activities of the Supreme Noble Ones
A Short Commentary on the King of Aspiration Prayers for the Excellent Conduct of the Noble Ones
Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche, Gerry Wiener
Inside the Avatamsaka sutra, is the Gandavyuha sutra which teaches the all-encompassing activities of the bodhisattvas. The King of Aspiration Prayers is taken from the last chapter of the Gandavyuha sutra. It is an aspiration prayer made by Samantabhadra who is one of the eight bodhisattvas of the Buddha.
Generally recited at the conclusion of daily practice, The King of Aspiration Prayers for the Excellent Conduct of the Noble Ones is also one of the main prayers chanted during great gatherings of Tibetan Buddhist practitioners such as the Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya, and Gelug Monlams.
This commentary was written by Lochen Dharmashri who lived from 1654 to 1717.
He received the refuge and bodhichitta vows as well as vajrayana empowerments from his elder brother, the first Mindrolling Trichen, Terdak Lingpa, who was his principal teacher. He received his monastic vows from the Fifth Dalai Lama.
Lochen Dharmashri was renowned as a great scholar and was the author of twenty four volumes of collected works containing commentaries on the sutras and tantras.
In particular he wrote well-known commentaries on the Guhyagarbha Tantra.
