Verses for the Eight Auspicious Noble Ones by Je Mipham
The Tashi Gyepa, or Verses for the Eight Auspicious Noble Ones, is a popular composition by Je Mipham that is recited daily by practitioners of many different faiths.
It is based on the Mangalashtaka Sutra, also known as the Eight Auspicious Noble Ones Sutra. The verses honor the Three Jewels, eight sugatas, eight great bodhisattvas, eight offering goddesses, and eight worldly guardians.
The text celebrates the power of these figures, and Je Mipham’s words suggest that if it is recited regularly or before beginning a new task, it will bring unimaginable advantages. It can remove obstructions, generate positive conditions, and make it possible to achieve all goals.
