The “Verses for the Eight Auspicious Noble Ones,” or “Tashi Gyepa” in Tibetan, is one of Mipham Rinpoche’s most well-known compositions and is recited daily by practitioners from a variety of traditions.
In these verses one pays homage to the Three Rare Sublime Ones (the Three Jewels), eight sugatas, the eight great bodhisattvas, the eight offering goddesses, and the eight worldly guardians. The text also describes the hand implements or offerings held by each of the eight bodhisattvas, goddesses, and guardians.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche has recommended reciting this prayer every morning for “the success of the center and your own success, the success of FPMT, and the holy wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.”
