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.”

    Thank you for you thoughtful sharing of providing natural relief of those who are suffering from migraine. To my experience migraine is a chronic illness because I have suffered from them. Most people assume that the migraine was triggered by one single item but
    to me it’s due to a combination of factors.

    I think this article will be so much helpful for many who is looking for solution to prevent and cure this chronic illness.

    Hope this natural remedies will benefits many to explore a new treatment and prevent them from taking magic pills for fast relief.

    Thank you Pastor David for sharing this well research article on Sakya lineage connection with Dorje Shugden . The Sakya Lineage and Dorje Shugden has a long related history over hundred years ago. Wow……six out of the 42 supreme Sakya throne holders, six of the throne holders had indeed practiced Dorje Shugden. And even the 31st and 37th Sakya Trizin, two of the throne were recognised to be the incarnations of Dorje Shugden. They even built chapels and composed prayer texts to Dorje Shugden. It has proven that not only Gelug lineage did propitiate Dorje Shugden but also Sakya lineage. Sakya Lamas had practiced Dorje Shugden even long before the Gelug lamas. Dorje Shugden had been practiced by so many masters and lamas from various schools of Buddhism . Dorje Shugden was enthroned first as a Dharma protector in Tibet over 400 years ago by the highest Sakya throneholders and masters. Hence these practice is not a minor practice after all. It has again proven that Dorje Shugden is a beneficial practice and not the evil practice as claimed by CTA.
    Interesting read.

    Very interesting and inspiring article. It is very true our human perception toward a point of view like what is right or wrong there is always a mistake or I should said in most time is wrong or is not bringing any benefits to us.
    All our problems arise from the mind. So to solve them, we need to work on the mind. Hence, no martial arts can be greater than spirituality. Thank you very much for sharing this profound story with us.

    I feel so blessed for learning something from this article. Thank you so much for your thoughtful sharing. I truly understand the possess power to change our lives during our falls was actually a good sign. I gained some positive energy and felt was extremely incredible!

    There are highs and lows in any journey, however if life is more down than up, then it’s time to question why, I had a great teaching from this sharing.

    I totally agree that the lows should be appreciated and enjoyed, because its from the lows that experience the highs. Living our life with positivity so that we can continue to improve and achieve what we desire.

    Amazing architecture of a small village Toyuq, located 50 km east of Turpan in the Flaming Mountains. Amazing ancient Buddhist caves dug into the hillside dated as far back as 3rd century AD. Well….they are the oldest in Xinjiang. With an interesting history behind this village. Buddhism spread here from India along the ancient Silk Road but declined after the Turkic Muslim conquests in the late 13th century. Many then converted to Muslim and a number of caves of ancient painting were destroyed. Amazing pictures of ceiling panels with standing Buddhas, and Thousand-Buddha motifs in the post . Its indeed a treasure trove of stone carvings and mural paintings .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. Life is short and the time of death is uncertain. Act now, its never be late to learn, practice Dharma in our life. Death is a challenge, never waste our time on something which leads us to nowhere. Learning Dharma is our best choice, do Dharma works to benefits others and always works with it. This will miraculously transform our whole life before the moment of death that really matters.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this profound teachings.

    Geshe Thupten Lama one of the great scholars and masters who will never give up Dorje Shugden ‘s practice and courageously spoke up openly against the ban. Even wrote letters to Dalai Lama defending the ban on Dorje Shugden. Because of all these his life was threatened and was forced to seek political asylum in America. The CTA even considered him as a evil Chinese spy. Since the Dorje Shugden controversy many people had suffered causing disharmony, discrimination, families and monasteries torn apart are some of the examples. To have harmony and peace in a country we should have freedom to practice one’s own religion and beliefs. And politics should not involve religion in any government. Peace cannot be kept by force , it can only be achieved by understanding. All should be treated equally and without prejudice regardless of our religion views.
    Geshe Thupten Lama is indeed a great scholar and was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile, wrote a book …..The Supreme Path to the Trikaya, which explained all about on the practice of the Six Paramitas or the Six Perfections, and other beneficial Dharma treasures.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    The Incredible Legend of Hoichi the Earless Minstrel is exactly that, the suspense with a great interesting twist to the ending. Not so perfect as is in real life, the sacrifice of his ears for his life in peace, although of course not by his choice but the negligence of another.

    In this story, we can see how they use Heart Sutra to as protection from black magic and ward off evil spirits. Thank you very much for sharing such an intriguing story about Hoichi the Earless Minstrel.

    Interesting ….. astronauts and military personnel has discovered the existence of UFO and aliens beyond the earth. They have proof that UFO do exist and we are alone in the universe. Leroy Gordon Cooper, a space pioneer and Robert Dean a retired Command Sergeant Major in the US Army tells us all . With Leroy Gordon witnessed first-hand encounter of an actual UFO and the “Cosmic Top Secret” documents detailing alien activity on earth viewed by Robert Dean has already proven it. But it was kept secret.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing explaining the present-day technology that has affected our general well-being situation spiritually . Giving an example of why rain dance doesn’t work anymore. Spiritual practice give us aspects of the powers of the divine. Technology is a magic and its objects remains a puzzle that is hard to unlock in regards to human experiences. The effect of technology could enhance the human material civilization, but its impact was so strong to our spiritual practice, it caused human addiction. In the modern era, technology has become a seemingly ubiquitous part of everyone’s life such as computers and hand phones. The natural element are gone, environment been disturbed so things will not happen . Interesting read.
    Professor Stephen Hawking, did mention before that advances in science and technology could lead to destructions .

    Living our life in the public eye , we have a heavy responsibility on our shoulder that most people thought. But with determination and courageous Rinpoche did it without any burden. Rinpoche did it all these years, born and bred to be in the public eye, Rinpoche seemed to know what to do without thinking about it. A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives that’s what Rinpoche thought of. Rinpoche’s thought was to help them and to bless their spiritual practice in a way. Rinpoche cares more for the people than himself, of course Rinpoche loves to be alone. Rinpoche loves to alone living up the greenery mountains and clear lakes as mentioned before. Rinpoche could not avoid being in the public eye and getting recognized. Rinpoche never retaliated in whatever situation, such as the Dorje Shugden controversy ,Rinpoche kept all his vows in accordance with the Vinaya nor matter what happened.
    Thank you Pastor Jean Ai for sharing your wonderful recalling memories with our Lama.

    I am grateful that Kechara organise this event every year so we can make offering to our ancestor, departed families and also to all sentient beings whether alive or not. We may not know what action we have engaged which afflicted others in the past and the prayer is important to purify our negative karma. Thank you Kechara for organising this event and allow us the opportunity to collect merits through the prayer and offerings.

    A very beautiful Buddha statue. With this huge size many beings can view from a far and benefit them by planting a dharma seed to them. I’m sure the statue will attract a lot of people to visit Thimpu in Bhutan. May all be blessed and rejoice for the people for are involved in the planning, sponsorship and construction.

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.

    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
