Кьябдже Линг Ринпоче, 97 Держатель Трона Ганден и yongs ‘dzin 14-го Далай-ламы родился 1903 году в Yabphu вблизи Лхасы. Yabphu является священным местом Чакрасамвары и Ваджрайогини, сформированное подобно двойному треугольнику. В нем также содержатся драгоценные образы Ваджрайогини Наропы, которые широко известны. Так как в предыдущей жизни Линг Ринпоче был Dzin yongs 13-го Далай-ламы, его новая реинкарнация была подтверждена 13 Далай-ламой, и он был возведен на трон в Лхасе в раннем возрасте.

Когда ему было 10 он поступил в Дрепунг Лоселинг и начал изучать пять основных текстов. В 13 лет он получил рукоположение новичка от 13-го Далай-ламы. Что касается изучения пяти основных текстов Линг Ринпоче пишет:

“ заучивались оcновные тезисы каждого из пяти основных текстов, а так же комментарии Дже Ринпоче, его, подобным сыновьям, учеников и Панчен Сонам Дагпы. Мы должны были понять смысл коренных текстов и их комментариев, чтобы обсуждать все свои трудные моменты, правильно анализировать и понимать различные точки зрения основных индийских и тибетских учителей. Таким образом, я тщательно изучал и обсуждал их с умными друзьями по Дхарме и приобрел значительные знания”.

В своей автобиографии Линг Ринпоче дает длинный перечень конкретных текстов, которые были изучены и обсуждались в течение этого времени. Первым Линг Ринпоче упоминает изучение Праджняпарамиты связанной с Майтрейей “Пять трактатов” данных Асангой, дополненные Абхисамайаламкара. Также были изучены соответствующие тексты Харибхадры, Джамгона Цонкапы, Дже Гьялцапа и Панчен Сонам Драгпы. Также изучение включало в себя “восемь скрытых смыслов Праджняпарамиты что включает восемь категорий и семьдесят тематик”. Он также вспоминает, что колледжи Гоман и Лоселинг (обе части Дрепунга) проводили регулярные дебаты вместе, на которых он присутствовал. В одном случае он дебатировал с Геше Гоман Гангшингом по поводу Шесть Логических Текстов философии Мадхьямики Нагарджуны. По словам Линга Ринпоче эти тексты “обосновывали непосредственный смысл пустоты как это представлено в Праджняпарамита Сутре”. Для изучения текстов помимо тех, которые были даны Нагарджуной, Для того, чтобы изучать тексты Мадхьямики, в дополнение к Нагарджуне, изучались Чже Цонкапа и Панчен Сонам Драгпа.

Тем не менее, Линг Ринпоче говорил: “чтобы адекватно понимать глубокие воззрения философии Мадхьямики необходимо также изучить Прамана (Доставерное познание) “. С этой целью, наряду с другими текстами в классе высшей логики изучался Дхармакирти, Линг Ринпоче говорит, что комментарий Дхармакирти относительно Прамана “логически доказывает безошибочную природу Просветленных и их учения, которое приводит к освобождению и всеведению.”

Традиционно в Тибете Чжанг был местом для изучения Прамана в зимний период, предусматривающая длительные периоды сессий диспутов, как рассказывал Линг Ринпоче: ” было очень холодно в Чанге, наши руки покрыли трещины, но вряд ли можно почувствовать как капала кровь, потому что наша концентрация была полностью задействована в диспутах.” Согласно Линга Ринпоче наиболее важные комментарии к Пранавартика Дхармакирти давались по Панчен Сонам Драгпе и Гьялцаб Дхарма Ринчену.

Далее, из пяти больших предметов Винаи, которые, согласно Линг Ринпоче: “учат способу получать обеты для тех, кто еще не получил их, и как восстановить, когда они нарушаются. Учение о трех точках совета, возражения, практики и разрешения ярко проявилось в корневом Гунапрабха и комментарии текстов Виная сутры. “Согласно Лингу Ринпоче изучались дополнительные тексты Кункхьен Тсонава, Гендюн Друп, Панчен Сонам Драгпа.

Наконец, была изучена метафизика Абхидхармакоша (Сокровищница Абхидхармы), которая была создана Васубандху и включала семь текстов абхидхармы, основанных на практике Хиная. Изучались и комментарии к ним, в их числе написанные Чим Джампел Янгом и Гендун Друпой.

В 1922 году Линг Ринпоче был полностью рукоположен 13-м Далай-ламой. Он обладал знаниями, чтобы держать экзамен на степень геше в возрасте 20 лет, беспрецедентно молодом возрасте. В возрасте 22 лет он получил степень Геше Лхарампы. Затем он поступил в Высший Тантрический колледж и изучал все четыре класса тантры, особенно Херука, Гухьясамаджа и Ямантака. Для изучения Гухьясамаджи он опирался на множество текстов, включая тексты Панчен Сонам Драгпы по этапам зарождения и завершения, комментарии Чандракирти и Джамгона Цонкапы среди прочих текстов. Он также изучил комментарии Джамгона Цонкапы на Чакрасамвару “Уточнение скрытых смыслов”. Когда ему было 23 года он достиг первой ступени на тантрических экзаменах. Когда ему было 24 [т.е. через два года после поступления] он стал дисциплинарием (dGe-skos) 1, в Высшем Тантрическом колледже в течение четырех месяцев.

В дополнение к классическому образованию гелуг Линг Ринпоче также получил много учений от величайших мастеров того времени.

Еще в возрасте 12 лет он получил учения Ламрим Ченмо от 13-ого Далай-ламы и посвящения в одиночного Ямантаку и Ваджрайогини от Дже Пабонгки Ринпоче. О своих учителях уже после окончания Высшего тантрического колледжа Линг Ринпоче пишет:

”Среди моих учителя в это время был Дже Пабонгка Дечен Ньингпо, манифестация славного Чакрасамвары (Пал Кхор Домпа). Моими учителями были и другие великие, такие как Кьябгон Йонгзин Сикйонг Тратаг Дордже Чанг, Кьябдже Йонгзин Триджанг Дордже Чанг, Кьябдже Кхангсар Дордже Чанг, Чоне Лама Ринпоче Лосанг Гьялцен Палзангпо и др. Короче говоря, я учился у тридцати ученых и практиков. Их доброта не может быть оплачена даже за счет удерживания их на моей голове бесчисленную продолжительность жизни”.

Когда ему было 28 лет он отправился в южный Тибет, дал учения и посетил много мест паломничества. Когда 13-й Далай-лама скончался он участвовал в создании золотой ступы для его мощей. Далее, в возрасте 34 года он был назначен настоятелем Верхний тантрический колледжа. Вскоре после этого он был назначен mtshan zhabs 14-го Далай-ламы. В 1941 году он был назначен младшим yongs ‘dzin к Далай-ламе, а в 1949 году он стал Шарпа Чоедже. В 1953 году он стал старшим Dzin yongs Далай-ламы и передал ему учение о Ламрим и тантрические учения Херука, Гухьясамаджи и Ямантаки. В 1954 году он дал полное рукоположение Далай-ламе во время фестиваля Великой молитвы.

В 1954 году он посетил Китай с Далай-ламой, после чего они посетили Кумбум Джампа Линг в Амдо. В 1956 году в годовщину 2500-летия Паринирваны Будды он посетил Бодхгайю и другие места паломничества в Индии вместе с Далай-ламой. После возвращения в Тибет, он дал много учений по Тантре в том числе по вопросам этапов зарождения и завершения Ваджрабхайравы и Гухьясамаджи. В 1959 году, после китайской оккупации Тибета, он бежал в Индию.

В 1960 году в связи с кончиной предыдущего Гадентрипы (глава Гелугпа) в Тибете, Линг Ринпоче был назначен 97-м держателем Трона Ганден [в Индии 2]. Он взошел на трон в монастыре Гаден Пелгье Линг. Он посетил Швейцарию и Англию и дал много учений. В 1969 году он дал учение о Ламрим Ченмо по просьбе гуру Дева Ринпоче в монастыре Гаден Пелгье Линг. В 1972 году он посетил три монастыря Сера, Ганден и Дрепунг на юге Индии и дал много учений. Он продолжал поворачивать колесо Дхармы до своей кончины в 1983 году. В заключение своей автобиографии, Линг Ринпоче говорит:

До сих пор я посвятил свое пребывание в Индии службе восстановления ослабевшего учения Будды и учения Второго Будды (Джамгона Цонкапы), безупречного воззрения сутры и тантры, которые подобны чистому золоту.

The 97th Head of Gelugpa Kyabje Ling Rinpoche (1903-1983)

Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, the 97th Throne Holder of Gaden and yongs’ dzin (tutor) to the 14th Dalai Lama was born in 1903 in Yabphu near Lhasa. Yabphu is a sacred site of Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini, shaped like a double triangle. Yabphu also has a precious image of Naropa’s Vajrayogini, which is widely known. Since Ling Rinpoche had been the tutor of the 13th Dalai Lama in his previous life, his reincarnation was confirmed by the 13th Dalai Lama, and he was enthroned in Lhasa at an early age.

When he was 10, he entered Drepung Loseling and began to study the five major texts. At 13, he received novice ordination from the 13th Dalai Lama. As for the study of the five major texts, Ling Rinpoche wrote,

“The basic texts of the five major texts, as well as commentaries by Je Rinpoche, his sons-like disciples, and Panchen Sonam Drakpa were memorized. We had to understand the meaning of the root texts and their commentaries in order to discuss all of their difficult points, properly analyze and understand the different points of view of the main Indian and Tibetan masters. Thus, I carefully studied and discussed them with wise Dharma friends and gained considerable knowledge. ”

In his autobiography, Ling Rinpoche gave a long list of specific texts that have been studied and discussed during this time. First, Ling Rinpoche mentioned the study of the Prajnaparamita associated with Maitreya’s “Five Treatises” given to Asanga, supplemented by the Abhisamayalamkara. The relevant texts of Haribhadra, Jamgon Tsongkhapa, Gyaltsab Je and Panchen Sonam Drakpa were also studied. The study also included “The Eight Hidden Meanings of Prajnaparamita Which Includes Eight Categories and Seventy Topics.” He also recalled that the Gomang and Loseling colleges (both parts of Drepung) held regular debates together, in which he attended. On one occasion, he debated with Geshe Gomang Gangshing on Nagarjuna’s six logic texts of Madhyamika philosophy. According to Ling Rinpoche, these texts “established the direct meaning of emptiness as presented in the Prajnaparamita Sutra.” To study the Madhyamika texts, besides those by Nagarjuna, the additional texts by Je Tsongkhapa and Panchen Sonam Drakpa were also studied.

However, Ling Rinpoche said, “in order to adequately understand the profound views of the Madhyamika philosophy, Pramana (Valid Cognition) must also be studied.” To this end, along with other texts in the higher logic class, Dharmakirti’s text was studied. Ling Rinpoche said that Dharmakirti’s commentary on Pramana “logically proves the non-deceptive nature of the Enlightened Ones and their teachings, which leads to liberation and omniscience.”

Traditionally in Tibet, Jang was a place to study Pramana in the winter, which included long periods of debate sessions, as Ling Rinpoche said: “It was very cold in Jang, our hands were cracked, but you could hardly feel how the blood dripped, because our concentration was fully involved in the debates. ” According to Ling Rinpoche, the most important commentaries on Dharmakirti’s Pramanavartika are by Panchen Sonam Drakpa and Gyaltsab Dharma Rinchen.

Next, of the five major subjects, Vinaya, which, according to Ling Rinpoche, “teaches the way to obtain vows for those who have not yet obtained them, and how to restore when they are broken. The teachings on the three points of advice, the objections, the practices and the permissions are clearly revealed in Gunaprabha’s root and commentary texts on the Vinaya Sutra.” According to Ling Rinpoche, the additional texts by Kunkhyen Tsonawa, Gendun Drup, Panchen Sonam Drakpa are studied.

Finally, the metaphysics of the Abhidharmakosa (Treasury of Abhidharma), which was created by Vasubandhu and included seven Abhidharma texts based on the Hinaya practice, was studied. Among the commentaries studied on this topic was those written by Chim Jampel Yang and Gendun Drup.

In 1922 Ling Rinpoche took full ordination from the 13th Dalai Lama. He was instructed to begin his Geshe degree examination at age 20, an unprecedentedly young age. At age 22, he obtained the Geshe Lharampa degree. He then entered the Upper Tantric College and studied all four classes of Tantra, especially Heruka, Guhyasamaja and Yamantaka. For Guhyasamaja he relied on many texts, including Panchen Sonam Drakpa’s text on the generation and completion stage, commentaries by Chandrakirti and Jamgon Tsongkhapa, among other texts. He also studied Jamgon Tsongkhapa’s commentary on Chakrasamvara “Clarifying the Hidden Meaning”. When he was 23, he was given the first position in the tantric examinations. When he was 24, he became the disciplinarian for the Upper Tantric College for four months.

In addition to the classical Gelug education, Ling Rinpoche also received many teachings from the greatest masters of the time. At the age of 12, he received the teachings of Lamrim Chenmo from the 13th Dalai Lama and his initiation into the Solitary Hero Yamantaka and Vajrayogini from Je Pabongka Rinpoche. Ling Rinpoche wrote about his teachers after graduating from the Upper Tantric College,

“Among my teachers at this time was Je Pabongka Dechen Nyingpo, a manifestation of the glorious Chakrasamvara (Pal Khor Dompa). My other teachers were the great Kyabgon Yongzin Sikyong Tradag Dorje Chang, Kyabje Yongzin Trijang Dorje Chang, Kyabje Khangsar Dorje Chang, Chone Lama Rinpoche Losang Gyaltsen Palzangpo and others. In short, I studied with thirty scholars and practitioners. Their kindness cannot be repaid even by keeping them on my head for countless lifetimes. ”

When he was 28 years old, he went to southern Tibet, gave teachings and visited many places of pilgrimage. When the 13th Dalai Lama passed away, he participated in the creation of a golden stupa for his relics. Then at the age of 34, he was appointed abbot of the Upper Tantric College. Shortly afterwards, he was appointed mtshan zhabs (assistant tutor) of the 14th Dalai Lama. In 1941, he was appointed junior yongs’ dzin to the Dalai Lama, and in 1949 he became Sharpa Choeje. In 1953, he became the senior yongs dzin of the Dalai Lama and gave him the teachings on Lamrim and the tantric teachings of Heruka, Guhyasamaja and Yamantaka. In 1954, he gave the full ordination to the Dalai Lama during the Great Prayer Festival.

In 1954, he visited China with the Dalai Lama, after which they visited Kumbum Jampa Ling in Amdo. In 1956, on the 2500th anniversary of Buddha’s Parinirvana, he visited Bodhgaya and other pilgrimage sites in India with the Dalai Lama. After returning to Tibet, he gave many teachings on Tantra, including on the generation and completion stages of Vajrabhairava and Guhyasamaja. In 1959, after the Chinese occupation of Tibet, he fled to India.

In 1960, upon the death of the previous Throne Holder of Gaden (Head of the Gelugpa) in Tibet, Ling Rinpoche was appointed the 97th Throne Holder of Gaden. He ascended to the throne in the Gaden Phelgye Ling monastery. He visited Switzerland and England and gave many teachings. In 1969, he gave a teaching on Lamrim Chenmo at the request of Guru Deva Rinpoche at the Gaden Phelgye Ling Monastery. In 1972, he visited the three monasteries of Sera, Ganden and Drepung in Southern India and gave many teachings. He continued to turn the wheel of Dharma until his passing in 1983. In the conclusion of his autobiography, Ling Rinpoche stated,

“Until now, I have dedicated my stay in India to the service of restoring the waning doctrine of the Buddha and the teachings of the Second Buddha (Jamgon Tsongkhapa), the stainless views of both the Sutra and Tantra, which are like pure gold.”

    This is such a beautiful story. When Joao found Jinjing the penguin, out of compassion, he rescued Jinjing. He made sure Jinjing has recuperated before releasing Jinjing back to where it came from. Joao didn’t expect anything from Jinjing.

    However, Jinjing remembers the kindness of Joao and comes back to visit Joao every year. Animals may not be able to talk but they can feel the sincerity of human beings. Jinjing knows that Joao is very kind and will never hurt it.

    Wow beautiful photos of Buddhas and Great Lamas paints a thousands words. Found this old post which is amazing with many old photos. ….a safe keeping of Rinpoche collected over the years. Some of those photos where rare such as the one of HH Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang and the Kuan Yin statue kept in Rinpoche’s audience room in Kechara. Well maintained even it’s a decade ago. We are also fortunate to see the sacred altar of Pelden Hlamo in Rashi Gempil Ling Temple in Howell, New Jersey.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing of those old photos in Rinpoche’s photo album.

    Eating meat causes killings which is a choice you make at every meal. Make the conscious choice of kindness. Don’t eat meat and their wishes to be alive are yours to fulfill.

    Racism Against Tibetans in America

    When I was sent the article below today by one of my friends, I was not surprised because from my experience growing up in America, I know many people have experienced and continue to experience racism just because of something they cannot change which is their ethnicity and skin colour. So while I was not happy to read what Tenzin has experienced, sad to say but now he knows what it feels like as a Tibetan to be called something derogatory because of who you are.

    What is andagu?

    Today, Pagan is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site because over 2,200 of these ancient temples and pagodas still survive. The Pagan plains, by the way, are only 104 square kilometres so you can imagine how the landscape must have looked with so many monasteries, temples and stupas. The city itself must have been teeming with artisans, carvers, painters and sculptors all working on these holy sites. After all, if people were building the temples and monasteries, there had to be other people creating the Buddha images to be enshrined within.

    What Lama Zopa Teaches About the Dorje Shugden Ban

    FPMT centres today however, no longer rely on Dorje Shugden, on the advice of their current spiritual advisor and spiritual heir of Lama Yeshe, Venerable Lama Zopa. The new FPMT policy to no longer follow the practice of Dorje Shugden is in contrast with Lama Yeshe who was extremely devoted to Dorje Shugden and relied on him until the day he passed. This is something that Lama Zopa himself has previously acknowledged; despite halting the practice at FPMT centres, Lama Zopa said in the past that:

    Kopan Monastery had been performing the Dorje Shugden practice from the beginning, as this was Lama Yeshe’s main protector, on whom he relied whenever he needed help for anything.~Lama Zopa

    Translator Ven. Helmut Gassner on Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden

    As if by some divine plan, Helmut Gassner’s role as the Dalai Lama’s interpreter ended just a year before the Dalai Lama’s ban on the practice of Dorje Shugden in 1996. After having interpreted for the Dalai Lama during a series of events organised by the University for Peace in Berlin, they said goodbye to each other at the airport, where the Dalai Lama told him, “I never worry when you are there as my interpreter.” That was the last time Helmut Gassner interpreted for the Dalai Lama.

    Enlightened childhood paintings by Tsem Rinpoche

    Some of the artwork, which took hours to create, even won Rinpoche prizes at school. For his artwork, Rinpoche used a variety of mediums; some of the Buddha images would be painted and others would be coloured with crayons or magic markers. Once finished, Rinpoche would also wrap some of the drawings with Saran Wrap (cling wrap) plastic and attach a string to them, before passing the images out to friends and relatives to wear for blessings and protection.

    It is great that Kechara Puja House is offering pet funeral service. This will give comfort to the pet owners as they can do something beneficial for their pets. After the funeral rite is performed, the owner can continue to help the pets to accumulate merits by making offerings to the 3 Jewels and dedicate the merits to them.

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.
    2 yearss ago
    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
