The Gaden Tripa

The Gaden Tripa is the Holder of the Gaden Throne. The occupant of this position is considered to be the representative of Lama Tsongkhapa on Earth. This is a title that is given to the spiritual leader of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism, the school that is the dominant tradition in Central Tibet since the mid-17th century.

The Gaden Tripa is appointed on the basis of a hierarchical progression that is based on the merit of a monk’s learning, practice and adherence to the monastic vows and commitments. The Gaden Tripa or Throne Holder of Gaden is a post that is obtained by merit and not by recognition as a reincarnation. Therefore, an ordinary monk with no status or rank can ascend the ranks within the monastery to this highest position.

The Gaden Tripa is by appointment once every seven years between Jangtse Choje and Sharpa Choje on an alternating basis. The appointment is automatic but it is confirmed by the Dalai Lama who will publicly announce the appointment at the time of changeover.

Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal

The 101st Gaden Trisur Rinpoche, Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal was born in 1927 in Kham (eastern Tibet). He was ordained in 1935 at the tender age of eight where he joined the local monastery in Yangding. He later entered Gaden Shartse Norling College as a student and studied Pramanavarttika (Logic), Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom) and Madhyamika (Middle Way Philosophy) under the guidance of various highly attained masters. He had also received many precious teachings and empowerments from the pure Gaden lineage.

In 1959, Trisur Rinpoche escaped from Tibet to travel to India, arriving at the India-Bhutan border town of Buxa to continue his studies and meditation retreats. It was there where Trisur Rinpoche completed his education in the Madhyamika, Abhidharma (Treasury of Knowledge), and Vinaya (the study of monastic discipline).

In 1969, Trisur Rinpoche accomplished the study of the Five Major Treatises of Buddhist Philosophy and participated in the final exam at a renowned local Tibetan monastic university, graduating in the 1st position with the highest honour. Consequently, he joined the Gyuto Tantric University and focused intensively on the study of Tantra.

In 1970, he was officially conferred the title of Geshe Lharampa (equivalent to a Ph.D. of Buddhist studies) where he emerged at the top of a major debate held for 20 days. This debate had over 30 candidates from the three great monasteries of Gaden, Sera and Drepung along with other universities.

In 1973, he was conferred the title of Geshe Ngarampa (Specialist in Tantra) after 40 years of intensive practice and studies in all fields of Buddhist Sutra and Tantra. This included the Five Major Treatises of Buddhist Philosophy as well as an extraordinary monastic education, which included numerous sacred rituals.

In 1983, after 50 years of meditative practices and studies, he was elevated to the post of Abbot of the Tantric University of Gyuto by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

On October 27, 1986, Trisur Rinpoche was part of the special envoy of the Dalai Lama to the Ecumenical Encounters of Assisi in Italy convened by Pope John Paul II with 32 Christian religious organizations and 11 other non-Christian world religions, including representatives from Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Shintoism, Baha’i, Zoroastrianism and African and North American animism. In all, there were 160 religious leaders spending the day together, fasting and praying. This is known as the World Day of Prayer for Peace.

In 1992, he was elevated to the post of the Abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastic University. During the years of Trisur Rinpoche’s abbotship, apart from supervising the administration and discipline of the ordained monks, he also conducted various pujas and teachings personally. His contribution towards the monastery is widely recognised and deeply respected by all.

In 1995, he was bestowed the honorary rank of Sharpa Choje, thus making him the second highest dignitary in the ranks of the Gelug school. This stemmed from the fact he was an abbot emeritus of Gyuto Tantric College.

On January 20, 2003, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama announced the appointment of Kensur Lungrik Namgyal Rinpoche as the 101st Gaden Tripa in Bodhgaya at the conclusion of the Kalachakra empowerment. He held the post for the customary seven-year period. According to custom, he became known as Trisur Rinpoche upon his completion of his term of office.

After his retirement, Trisur Rinpoche has been living in Paris, France as a French national. He transmits the Buddhist teachings of his lineage at his Dharma center, Thar Deu Ling which he founded in 1980. Furthermore, he has been travelling the world propagating the Buddhadharma in many countries including France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, America, China, and Singapore.

    In Tibet, a boy from the faraway provinces would normally enter into one of the hundreds of wayside monasteries in order to receive their novice ordination vows. In these smaller provincial monasteries, the young monks received their initial education on reading the Tibetan script, memorisation of the scriptures and so forth. Once these young monks came of age and received their full ordination vows, they would travel great distances to the larger monastic universities such as Gaden (3,300 monks), Sera (6,000 monks), Drepung (10,000 monks), Tashi Lhunpo (4,000 monks) and Amdo Tashikyil (4,000 monks)in order to further their monastic education on the great treatises and so on. Some of these boys from humble beginnings in the provinces would end up becoming great scholars and masters.

    在西藏,来自偏远地区的男孩一般会分别加入许许多多的小寺院接受沙弥戒。这些分布在不同地区的小寺院会为小沙弥提供初级教育,比如藏文阅读、经典背诵等教育。一旦小沙弥成年且到了接受比丘戒之时,他们将远行万里,到更大规模的寺院,比如甘丹寺(3300僧众)、色拉寺(6000僧众)、哲蚌寺(10000僧众)、扎什伦布寺(4000僧众),以及拉卜楞寺(4000僧众)升学,研习各种佛教大论。有的男孩虽然来自偏远地区、出身低微,但最终也是大有作为,成为伟大的学者和大师。

    This was what happened to Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche and the 103rd Gaden Tripa Lobsang Tenzin. Both of these lamas were originally from Tsem Monastery in the Yara valley of Kham, Tibet. When Kensur Rinpoche was just a young monk entering into Gaden Monastery, Tsem Rinpoche’s previous life was the abbot at that time. On the other hand, the Gaden Tripa was the nephew of Rinpoche’s previous life, Kentrul Thubten Lamsang. Such was the close connection that Tsem Rinpoche had with these two lamas, going back into previous lives. In this life in fact, Tsem Rinpoche offered his own ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery to Kensur Jampa Yeshe Rinpoche. Furthermore, the Gaden Tripa Lobsang Tenzin’s ladrang (house) in Drepung Loseling Monastery was fully sponsored by Tsem Rinpoche and his students, and Tsem Rinpoche also fully sponsored on a monthly basis some of the students in the Gaden Tripa’s house. Tsem Rinpoche also found personal sponsorship for the Gaden Tripa himself.

    Recently Beng Kooi and Martin on behalf of myself and Kechara was lucky to have audience with His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He lives in around Paris, France. His Holiness is 91 years old and very healthy and alert. He was the 101st throne holder for Tsongkapa and was the head of the Gelugpa school of Buddhism and was very successful during his tenure. He is a strong practitioner of both Sutra and Tantra of Je Tsongkapa’s tradition and a master of all Buddhist knowledge. He holds steadfast to his protector Dorje Shugden very strongly. So we can see even the highest throneholders who are masters of Sutra and Tantra also practices Dorje Shugden knowing the benefits.

    Beng Kooi and Martin brought photo albums of Kechara Forest Retreat/Kechara and updates on Kechara and our works. His Holiness was very pleased to listen and offered some gifts back.

    This is a beautiful picture and the great blessings bestowed on us from His Holiness Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal.

    Humbly,

    Tsem Rinpoche

    九十岁的寿日。随喜祝贺赤苏仁波切法体安康与长寿,常转法轮,利益更多众生。

    除此以外,此博文里的短片分享让我们清楚了解,现任的甘丹赤巴法王地位崇高彷如在世的宗喀巴大师一样(以现世的情况,法王的地位次于至尊第14世嘉瓦仁波切)。法王非常赞叹上师尊贵的詹杜固仁波切所做的一切贡献与功劳。这些年来,法王听闻有关詹杜固仁波切为甘丹寺所作出的贡献感到十分开心。法王认可詹杜固仁波切在马来西亚所做的一切,并且撰写序文和给予加持祈求仁波切在马来西亚的法务成功。因为,法王相信詹杜固仁波切会把法法脉延传下去。

    May the 101st Gaden Tripa, H.H. Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Lungrik Namgyal lives long and healthy to continue turning the wheel of Dharma. It is very heartwarming to read that the accomplished Gaden Tripa worked his way up on the basis of a hierarchical progression based on the merit of a monk’s learning, practice and adherence to the monastic vows and commitments. It is an inspiration to ordinary people like to us to study hard and hold our vows well.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post with all the charming photos of the birthday celebration.

    Humbly, bowing down,

    The reason why we are still able to learn Buddhism after 2500 years of Buddha’s lifetime, is because of the Sangha members. If not because of them, Buddha’s teaching would have lost years ago.

    The sangha members gave up the worldly “enjoyments”, and they study the Dharma text, and engage in intense practice, just to preserve Buddha’s teaching and spread Dharma to everyone. We owe these to all the sangha members.

    I wish H.H. Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal long and healthy life and may all of us benefit from such pure and high monk.

    • CindyH on Jun 11, 2016 at 12:35 am

      Agree with your sentiments that ordained Sangha plays a significant role in the preservation and spread of the pure Dharma. In fact, it has been said that Dharma practice is less intimidating due to facilitation from the Sangha. Just like the nurses in a hospital, the Sangha serves as a support system to help with the practitioner’s study and practise of the teachings of the Buddha. It has also been said that when the ordained Sangha uphold their practices and lineages, they themselves hold the power to assist in the removal of the sufferings of beings.

      The 101st Gaden Tripa, H.H. Gaden Trisur Rinpoche Lungrik Namgyal clearly has devoted his whole life to the Dharma and to date still tirelessly work on spreading the Dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings. His work is truly inspirational. May His Holiness live long and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma.

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing

    I have learnt from the article as below:

    The Gaden Tripa is the Holder of the Gaden Throne. The occupant of this position is considered to be the representative of Lama Tsongkhapa on Earth. This is a title that is given to the spiritual leader of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism,

    The Gaden Tripa is appointed on the basis of a hierarchical progression that is based on the merit of a monk’s learning, practice and adherence to the monastic vows and commitments. The Gaden Tripa or Throne Holder of Gaden is a post that is obtained by merit and not by recognition as a reincarnation. The Gaden Tripa is by appointment once every seven years

    His Holiness Trisur Rinpoche is one of the most qualified Buddhist teachers alive today – being highly trained in both fields of Sutra and Tantra. His Holiness Trisur Rinpoche has dedicated his whole lifetime to the propagation of the Buddhadharma, and has been tirelessly visiting many parts of the world to spread the Teachings. Countries which His Holiness Trisur Rinpoche has visited include – France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, America, China, Taiwan and Singapore. 

    In recent years, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama instituted a ban against the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden, but Gaden Trisur Rinpoche chose to continue with this practice, which he has been committed to his whole life. He has since left his monastery, Gaden Shartse, to join Shar Gaden Monastery which strongly maintains their worship of Dorje Shugden.

    May H.H Gaden Trisur Lungrik Namgyal have great health and live long to continue to turn the wheel of Dharma to benefit many sentient beings !!

    It looked like a very heartwarming celebration of a special being who has spent all his life since a child, to learn the Dharma, to achieve the highest level of Dharma learning; who observed all his monastic vows to perfection and earned him the highest honor and accolade to be appointed the 101st Gaden Tripa!! What’s even more heartwarming was to see all the other highly attained Lamas coming together to celebrate.I especially noticed the High Lamas H.E. Kensur Lobsang Phende Rinpoche, H.E. Gonsar Tulku Rinpoche, Ven. Rabten Tulku Rinpoche – all are Dorje Shugden practitioners who never gave up their practice despite all the difficulties they had to face from the ban!

  13. Fong on Jun 1, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    It is interesting to note that the post of the Ganden Tripa, the spiritual head of the Gelugs, is appointed by merits and not because he is a tulku. To me this a a kind of equanimity, a level playing field as the Westerners will call it.

    Another thing that I found interesting is that “great masters like the first abbot of Shar Gaden Monastery H.E. Kensur Lobsang Phende Rinpoche, H.E. Gonsar Tulku Rinpoche, Ven. Rabten Tulku Rinpoche and so forth.” This is the recognition and respect from one great master to another regardless. When can there be peace and the lifting of the ban for all attained masters to mingle and be as a whole sangha without the divide?

    Interesting read about Goddess Gemu, being worshipped by the ancient tribal community Mosuo people in both Shamanistic Animism Tibetan Buddhism. The Mosuo are considered the last-remaining matriarchal society in China, where they are a culturally-rich people. The traditional Mosuo religion worships nature, with Lugu Lake regarded as the Mother Goddess. Their practice is incorporated to the Tibetan Buddhism practice in the region for decades. The Mosuo has their own syncretic faith called Daba and the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. The Goddess Gemu is the most widely worshipped by the Mosuo people. Glad to note that the traditional shamanism based Daba faith is concertedly with the Tibetan Buddhism faith. The Zha Mei monastery which is a gelupa monastery had a strong affiliation with Dorje Shugden and at the same accepted the worshiping of this Goddess. The 5 th Panglung Kuten did took Dorje Shugden trance at this monastery . Strangely the CTA cannot accept the practice of Dorje Shugden on the hand could accept an unenlightened protector deity Godess Gemu. The practice of Dorje Shugden is indeed very beneficial so as the practice of Daba faith to the Mosus people.
    Well, may the Dorje Shugden ban soon going down into history for the benefits of all sentient beings.
    Thank you Valentina for a detail write up on the Gemu Goddess and those rare pictures of oracles by Dr.Joseph Rock who had explored the Tibetan borderlands .

    Walpola Rahula Thero was a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk, world renowned scholar and writer. Dr. Rahula is the first Buddhist monk to become a professor in a Western world. He has written extensively about Buddhism in English, French and Sinhalese. He was noted not only for his erudition but also for his strong socialist views. During his lifetime he was awarded several awards for his incredible work towards harmony.
    (Whatever we are Theravada or Mahayana, as Buddhists we all accept the Buddha as our Master who gave us the Teaching.)…..well said.
    Ven. Rahula was later instrumental in encouraging the formation of the first Theravada temple in the United States. He spent most of his life in teaching and lecturing before going back to Sri Lanka where he passed away. Interesting read.
    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this sharing.

    Tibet, on the northern side of the Himalayas, is an autonomous region of China. Also known as “Roof of the World” a country of immense natural beauty for its towering peaks and many beautiful scared lakes. Yamdrok Yumtso Lake is one of a power with natural beauty and very holy. Looking at those pictures in the blog tells us all. It is a beautiful turquoise-blue water lake mountain pass surrounded by snow capped mountains, island, pasture, temple, hot springs, wildlife and other natural landscapes. Yamdrok Lake is picturesque scenery, and it is in an organic whole of unique natural scenic. According to local folklore, Yamdrok Lake are considered sacrosanct by the Tibetan people is the transformation of a goddess and invested with special spiritual powers which is closely associated with Guru Rinpoche. Interesting read of the legend of that Dorje Geg Kyi Tso.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing with historic stories behind it.

    So powerful, octopus could actually attacked and eat an aggressive shark. One that might surprise us is such an soft spineless octopus could be killed shark. The incredible footage as shown in the video that a octopus successfully attacking and killing an unsuspecting spiny dogfish shark. The octopus use their strength to overpower the shark…amazingly where we do not expected it. Never judge anything by the look or size till the end result. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect.

    Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious belief that the non-physical essence of a living being starts a new life in a different physical form or body after biological death. The major religions in Asia hold a belief in reincarnation, especially Hinduism, Buddhism ,Jainism, and Sikhism accept that the reincarnation of a being depends on the past karma and merit accumulated. Reading this interesting blog, we get to understand better, we could look around in our friends or family members for signs that show us evidence of reincarnation. Interesting to know about these unusual signs of reincarnation as mentioned in this blog.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    That’s great with the discovery of a massive 2,600 year old Buddhist Monastery in Mes Aynak, Afghanistan. Mes Aynak contains Afghanistan’s largest copper deposit, as well as the remains of an ancient settlement with over 400 Buddha statues. This archaeological site is located at the world’s second-largest unexploited copper mine. Sadly because of the Afghanistan an Islamic government in no way interested in Buddhism, had given Afghani archeologists three years to excavate and soon it will be destroyed. Some believe future discoveries at the site could have the potential to redefine the history of Afghanistan and even the history of Buddhism itself. This site is an outstanding and complex archaeological landscape, with astounding quality of preservation. Well even the archaeological evidence points to civilizations in the area flourishing as early as the 3rd century BCE. This is an old post, all these ancient Buddhist site were destroyed by now….Sad. Interesting read. Looking at those beautiful rare pictures of the discoveries tell all.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this wonderful story…..The “Story of Buddha with Sick Man”. A good example for us to follow nor matter what happened or whom , we are to help each other and have compassion for all even its our enemies. Helping, supporting and taking care of each other is important in our Dharma practice. Having a perfect human body in this life, we have to live wisely and be grateful , learn and practice Dharma as life is short. We only live once, living harmoniously and peaceful will change the environment for us all to work and benefit more people in our spiritual practice. Harmony is the practice of the Sangha. If we have harmony, we have happiness. We don’t need to be perfect…..quoted.

    Buddhism has a long history in Indonesia, is the second oldest religion in Indonesia after Hinduism, which arrived from India around the second century. Reading this post reveal Indonesia has a rich and intricate history intertwined with colonialism and nationalism. The history of Buddhism in Indonesia is closely related to the history of Hinduism. Buddhists make up a small fraction of the population in the world’s largest Muslim-majority nation. As a number of empires influenced by Indian culture were established around the early 1st century. Many Buddhist temples were built and Buddhist texts were inscribed on the stones tablets. A number of Buddhist historical heritages such as the 8th century Borobudur mandala monument, ancient temples and numerous of statues or inscriptions were found in Indonesia tells us more about the earlier history of Indonesian Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms. Interesting read.

    As cars have become one of the most significant aspects in the modern life, that’s a great idea, for all of us to invite Buddha statue in our car for protection and blessing.

    As we believe that laying eyes on a Buddha statues suppose to bring peace, harmony, happiness, blessing and protection. Besides, having Buddha statue in car does not just bring positivity to the owner but it may also benefit others who travel together.

    Thank you for your skillful sharing of dharma.

    Merely seeing Buddha images will definitely leave us an imprint in our mind stream. As advice by our Lama Tsem Rinpoche it is extremely important to go on pilgrimage to visit holy places and see sacred images of the Buddhas. I am fortunate to visit pilgrimage sites with friends , seeing is believing looking at some of the beautiful scared images of Buddha. To meet Rinpoche and practice Dharma on line in this life time, is a fortune for me. Well we have to learn and practice Buddha Dharma now, before its too late, create the causes for this life and future life to come and able to meet Maitreya the next Buddha to come. Interesting read about the next Buddha Maitreya.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this important sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
