This album by Lama Zopa Rinpoche features the oral transmission (*lung) of several of Mahasiddha Thangtong Gyalpo's prayers.
Thangtong Gyalpo (1385–1464) was not just a great yogi, but a skilled engineer and artist, famous for helping the people of Tibet in very practical ways. He is said to have built 58 iron bridges, 60 wooden bridges, 118 ferry crossings, 120 assembly halls and temples, 111 stupas, and many hundreds of large and small statues, as well as creating innumerable paintings.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche recommends that students recite The Blessed Prayer Known as "Liberating Sakya from Disease" to help prevent the spread of the Corona virus. While doing this prayer, students should look at an image of Thangtong Gyalpo.
