The Sixty-ninth Ganden Tripa, Jangchub Chopel (dga’ lhan khri pa 69 byang chub chos ‘phel) was born in Litang (li thang) in Kham in the fire-hare year of the thirteenth sexagenary cycle, in 1756. His father was called Tashi (bkra shis) and the mother was named Mamo Tso (ma mo mtsho).

At the age of twelve, his crown-hair was cut by Lama Dongnak (bla ma gdong nag) of Sampel Ling Monastery (bsam ‘phel gling dgon pa) who gave him the name Jangchub Chopel. For the next eight years, according to his parents’ instruction, he spent winters in the monastery studying but worked as a shepherd during the summers in Rutok (ru thog). While rearing the animals he read the Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra daily and gradually learned it by heart.

At the age of fourteen, in 1769, he was granted the vows of upasaka, (dge bsnyen) primary-ordination (rab byung), and novice monk (dge tshul; sramanera) by Lama Konchok Chopel (bla ma dkon mchog chos ‘phel, d.u.), who performed as the abbot and was assisted by Geshe Rinchen Zangpo (dge bshes rin chen bzang po, d.u.) at Sampel Ling Monastery.

In 1776, at the age of twenty-one, Jangchub Chopel travelled to U and matriculated in the Dokang House of Shartse College of the Ganden Monastic University (dga’ shar rdo khang khang tshan) where he studied the philosophical texts of Geluk curriculum and later obtained the title of Kachupa (dka’ bcu pa) at Sangpu (gsang phu). Subsequently he returned to Ganden Monastery and further studied under a number of scholars including Shartse Khenpo Chowang Gyatso (shar rtse mkhan po chos dbang rgya mtsho, d.u.) and Geshe Sanggye Gyatso (dge bshes sangs rgyas rgya mtsho, d.u.). Despite living in considerable poverty, at the age of twenty-three he took a traditional test on Pramanavarttika in the monastery that drew attention of many scholars for his acumen in debate.

At the age of twenty-four, in 1779 Jangchub Chopel received the vows of full ordination (dge slong; bhiksu) from the Sixth Panchen Lama, Lobzang Pelden Yeshe (paN chen bla ma 03 blo bzang dpal ldan ye shes, 1738-1780). Subsequently he received many teachings from numerous scholars and prominent lamas including Ngawang Tsultrim (dga’ ldan khri pa 61 tshe smon gling ngag dbang tshul khrims), who later became the Sixty-first Ganden Tripa; Longdol Lama Ngawang Lobzang (klong rdol bla ma rin po che ngag dbang blo bzang, 1719-1794), and Yongdzin Yeshe Gyeltsen (yongs dzin ye shes rgyal mtshan, 1713-1793), one of the most important Geluk teachers of the eighteenth century who founded Tsechokling monastery near Lhasa. At the age of thirty-seven, in 1792, he stood for the traditional examination of Geshe Lharampa during the annual Great Prayer Festival of the year in Lhasa and obtained the Lharampa title, the highest degree in the Geluk tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

Jangchub Chopel joined Gyuto College (rgyud stod grwa tshang) the same year for studies in Tantra. There he studied all the four classes of tantra as classified by the Geluk tradition, studying particularly the Guhyasamaja, which became the basis for his personal practice. He also received a wide range of commentarial teachings, empowerments, esoteric instructions, and transmissions on such as Atisa‘s Bodhipathapradipa (byang chub lam sgron), the Sixth Panchen Lama’s Myur Lam (myur lam), or Swift Path, and Guhyasamaja, Cakrasamvara, and Yamantaka, and so forth from a number of outstanding teachers that included Sharchen Ngawang Tashi (shar chen ngag dbang bkra shis, d.u.); Gendun Tsultrim (dga’ ldan khri pa 65 khri chen dge ‘dun tshul khrims, 1744-1807), who later became the Sixty-fifth Ganden Tripa; Sharpa Lobzang Tenpa (shar pa blo bzang bstan pa, d.u.), Gungru Lobzang Dondrub (gung ru blo bzang don grub, d.u.), and Khenpo Lobzang Tukje (mkhan po blo bzang thugs rje, d.u.).

Jangchub Chopel served as the disciplinarian for the Winter Session that was participated by monks from the three main Geluk monasteries around Lhasa. At the age of forty-four in 1799 he was appointed as the chant leader (bla ma dbu mdzad) of Gyuto College, taking control of education there, and soon made abbot of the same college. After ten years, eight of which he lived at the Panglung Hermitage (spang lung ri khrod) engaging in his personal practices, in 1809, at the age of fifty-four, he was enthroned to the seat of Sharpa Choje (shar pa chos rje), placing him in line to ascend to the Golden Throne of Ganden from Shartse side. In 1811 Jangchub Chopel was appointed as the tutor to the Ninth Dalai Lama Lungtok Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 09, lung rtogs rgya mtsho, 1805-1815).

In January/February 1816, the twelfth month of fire-mouse year of the fourteenth sexagenary cycle, at the age of sixty, Jangchub Chopel was enthroned as the Sixty-ninth Ganden Tripa, only a few weeks before the annual Lhasa Monlam Chenmo. Some sources have it that his enthronement was in 1815, the wood-pig year of the fourteenth sexagenary cycle, but given that Trichen Lobzang Gelek, the previous Ganden Tripa (dga’ ldan khri pa 68 khri chen blo bzang dge legs, 1757-1816), was enthroned in 1815 and served for about a year, the enthronement of Trichen Jangchub Chopel in the year 1816 seems to be correct.

Jangchub Chopel served as Ganden Tripa for seven years, from 1816 to 1822, during which he gave traditional teachings and led the important religious programs of the Geluk tradition, including those that occur during the annual Lhasa Monlam Chenmo that was held for twenty-one days in the first month of Tibetan calendar. During his tenure he served as tutor to the Tenth Dalai Lama Tsultrim Gyatso (ta la’i bla ma 10 tshul khrims rgya mtsho, 1816-1837). He also sponsored and commissioned a large quantity of objects of faith. He retired from the Golden Throne in 1822, after the customary seven years of his tenure was completed.

Ngawang Chopel (dga’ lhan khri pa 70 ngag dbang chos ‘phel, 1760-1839) who was born in Damzhung (’dam gzhung) in 1760 in U region succeeded him.

Following his retirement Jangchub Chopel settled at Chubzang Hermitage (chu bzang ri khrod) for personal practices, and he gave teachings to his many disciples. He also built statues of Tsongkhapa and his main immediate disciples.

Among his disciples were Oro Zhabdrung Lobzang Tenpai Gyeltsen (o rod zhabs drung blo bzang bstan pa’i rgyal mtshan, b. 1819); Yeshe Dondrub Tenpai Gyeltsen (ye shes don grub bstan pa’i rgyal mtshan, 1796-1855); Takpu Yongdzin Yeshe Gyatso (stag phu yongs ‘dzin ye shes rgya mtsho, 1789-1856); the Third Rongta Chetsang, Lobzang Tenpai Gyeltsen (rong tha che tshang 03 blo bzang bstan pa’i rgyal mtshan, 1782-1857); Urge Khenpo Tobden Rabjam (u rge mkhan po stobs ldan rab ‘byams, b.1813); and the Seventh Kirti Kunga Chopak Tubten Nyima (kirti 07 kun dga’ chos ‘phags thub bstan nyi ma, 1797-1848).

Jangchub Chopel passed into nirvana after about seventeen years following his retirement, at the age of eighty-three in 1838, the earth-dog year of the fourteenth sexagenary cycle. A traditional cremation was done with traditional rites and rituals, and nirvana-prayers were done extensively.

Lobzang Tsultrim Pelden, (blo bzang tshul khrims dpal ldan, 1839-1900), who served as the Eighty-fifth Ganden Tripa, was recognized as the reincarnation of Jangchub Chopel, and took the title of Trijang Rinpoche (khri byang rin po che). The Third Trijang, Lobzang Yeshe Tendzin Gyatso (khri byang 03 blo bzang ye shes bstan ‘dzin rgya mtsho, 1901-1981) was the junior tutor to the Fourteenth Dalai Lama.

    The Sixty-ninth Ganden Tripa, Jangchub Chopel was born in Litang. He spend his younger days studying and working as a shepherd. He received many teachings from numerous scholars and famous lamas including Ngawang Tsultrim. He also studied all the four classes of tantra as classified by the Geluk tradition and received many commentarial teachings, empowerments and so forth from many outstanding teachers. Interesting biography of a great lama. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Listening to the chanting of sacred words, melodies, mantras, sutras and prayers has a very powerful healing effect on our outer and inner environments. It clears the chakras, spiritual toxins, the paths where our ‘chi’ travels within our bodies for health as well as for clearing the mind. It is soothing and relaxing but at the same time invigorates us with positive energy. The sacred sounds invite positive beings to inhabit our environment, expels negative beings and brings the sound of growth to the land, animals, water and plants. Sacred chants bless all living beings on our land as well as inanimate objects. Do download and play while in traffic to relax, when you are about to sleep, during meditation, during stress or just anytime. Great to play for animals and children. Share with friends the blessing of a full Dorje Shugden puja performed at Kechara Forest Retreat by our puja department for the benefit of others. Tsem Rinpoche

    If you have listened to Tsem Rinpoche’s teachings or had the good fortune to meet him personally, you know that he has an irrepressible sense of humour. Rinpoche has a way of making people relax and have a really good laugh.

    To do that, he uses his keen sense of observation and incredibly quick mind – nothing escapes his eyes. Some of the funniest moments are when Rinpoche mimics a student’s mannerisms or improvises scenarios that relate to the student’s expressions or reactions towards unpleasant situations or people. They are always spot on and pose a real danger of giving the audience belly-aching laughter.

    Can you plant an entire forest by yourself? The answer is, yes! The fourth highest civilian award in the Republic of India, Padma Shri awardee Jadav “Molai” Payeng single-handedly transformed the barren land of Majuli in Assam into a dense forest by planting a sapling a day since 40 years ago. He started his mission to revive the once barren, sandy river banks of Majuli when he was 16 years old after a startling discovery. Numerous snakes were found dead on the sandy banks of Brahmaputra River after a life-threatening flood. The snakes died from heat due to the lack of shades.

    During the 7th century Tang Dynasty of China (618 – 907 CE), there arose a great Buddhist master named Xuanzang (602 – 664 CE), who became a famed monk, explorer, scholar, writer, and translator. He is particularly famous for his journey to India, which took nearly two decades to complete, from 627 – 645 CE, and his careful translation of various Buddhist scriptures.

    Over the years, as the influence of his work spread, many variations of his name arose such as Tang Sanzang, Xuanzang Sanzang, Xuanzang Dashi, and Tang Seng. In fact, his story and works became influential in other Asian countries, where his name took on localised styles of pronunciation, such as Vietnam, where he is known as Huyen Trang; Japan, where he is celebrated as Genjo; and Korea, where he is called Hyeonjang. One of his greatest written works, the Great Tang Records on the Western Regions, provides stunning accounts of his travels, including the geography, customs and political descriptions of the kingdoms he visited in Central and Southern Asia. Due to his courage, perseverance, passion, and great learning, Xuanzang is considered to be one of the most illustrious figures in Chinese history.

    The most glorious period of the Monastery was during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) when it was converted into a Lamasery by Emperor Shunzhi (顺治帝) in the year 1656. In order to further increase the faith from Tibetans and Mongolians, Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722) bestowed the title of Provincial Commander-in-Chief to the monastery’s Senior Lama and ordered the whole state of Shanxi to allocate contributions to the temple. The roofing tiles of the Monastery were also changed to royal yellow glazed tiles in the years 1683-1691, like those used for imperial buildings. All Lama temples were then under the control of Pusa-Ding as the Imperial authority had made it the highest leading position of the region. The site has been the accommodation lodge for Qing Emperors, Mongolian warlords and Tibetan Lamas whenever they traveled to Wutaishan for pilgrimage.

    For Ku Shulan, papercutting was her heartfelt passion, which manifested in endless inspiration. Her works are colourful, full of images, and vibrant in colours, which can’t be created by a mind of mental distress or pessimism. Her legacy was not only the papercutting arts of great artistic value, but also her spirit of tenacity, perseverance, and not giving up in the face of difficulties.

    The Thangka of Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini

    This form of the deity is known as Sahaja Heruka Chakrasamvara. He appears in a simplified form with only one face and two arms embracing the consort Vajrayogini. In some ritual texts she is referred to as Vajra Varahi; however, her most common name is Vajrayogini, or Vajra Dakini. The colour of Chakrasamvara is blue and Vajrayogini is red. Their general mood and appearance is semi-peaceful and semi-wrathful.

    It is really heartbreaking reading this article. A young boy has to endure so much difficulties and rejection even from his own family members but amazingly he did not give up and continue to live independently. We can see how cruel human is, even family members do not want to accept him. They should have just find out more about HIV and learn to take care of A-Long and not letting him live alone by himself. Really hope he is with a good foster family or charity home now.

    Ten Reasons Your Dog May Develop Behaviour Problems

    While dogs don’t experience higher emotions such as shame, spite or contempt, they have the same range of basic emotions as we do, such as happiness, sadness, relief, frustration and fear. These feelings are essential in helping dogs learn about the world, and encourage them to behave in certain ways to protect or help them. Barking, biting, chewing and many other common dog behaviour problems are often misunderstood or mishandled by dog owners. If a dog feels fear, for example, they’re likely to seek out safety from the threat and gain a sense of relief, while the positive feelings they get from cuddles and grooming encourage good relationships with those around them.

    The Reasons Birds Hit Windows and How to Prevent It

    When a building has mainly glass windows instead of walls, birds are not able to capture visually the fact that it is solid. It will just be a space to explore and as such, the birds do tend to fly into the glass windows and often seriously injuring themselves. This is an article to teaching us a few methods to overcome this problem and to keep birds away in safety.

    I am surprised China is actually quite advanced in environmental protection. Back in the 1960s, they had already started their environmental protection project. Back then they didn’t know if they would be able to grow trees on barren deserts but they did not give up and they keep trying. 57 years later, they created the biggest man-made forest. This is simply amazing. China does not look at short term benefit or return. They look at the long term effects.

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.

    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
