GADEN MONASTERY FOUNDER

Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa (1357–1419)


Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa, was the founder of the Gelug tradition and one of the most influential Tibetan Buddhist scholars of the last millennium. He was born in the Tsongkha region of Amdo. At age 7 he received novice ordination and the name Lobsang Dragpa Pal. Later he moved to Lhasa and studied with more than 50 teachers of all Tibetan Buddhist traditions, including his spiritual master Rendawa.


At age 24 he received full ordination, and at age 37 he went with eight of his greatest students to the region of Olkar where he spent many years in retreat, teaching and debating on the meaning of the sutras and tantras, which resulted in a deep understanding of Nagarjuna’s Madhyamaka view. In his forties he composed both Lamrim Chenmo (The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path) and Ngarim Chenmo (The Great Treatise on the Tantric Stages of the Path). In 1409 he instituted the Great Prayer Festival in Lhasa, and in 1411 he founded Gaden Monastery, which eventually became the largest monastery in Tibet. Widely regarded as an emanation of Manjushri, Je Tsong Khapa composed eighteen volumes of works, of which the majority dealt with tantric subjects. Among his many famous students were his two principle disciples, Khedrub Je and Gyaltsab Je, and H.H. the First Dalai Lama Gendun Drub.

We are pleased to announce a free webcast on the special occasion of the ENTHRONEMENT CEREMONY AND LONG-LIFE PUJA FOR THE 104th GADEN TRIPA, H.E. Lobsang Tenzin Rinpoche, on August 4th and 5th, 2017, at Gaden Tri-Thok-Khang (Geluk International Foundation) Mundgod, South India.

Registration will be available till August 11th.

History:
The tradition of the Gaden Tripas (the throne holders of the Geluk tradition) began with the great master Tsongkhapa (1357 – 1419).  Before passing away, Tsongkhapa passed the leadership of the newly established Geluk tradition to Gyaltsab Je (1364-1432), who then passed it on to Khedrub Je (1385-1438).  Since then the precious legacy established by Tsongkhapa has continued up to today.  H.E. Lobsang Tenzin Rinpoche was appointed by H.H. the Dalai Lama as the 104th Gaden Tripa on June 24th, 2017.

The Gaden Tri Rinpoche is the supreme spiritual head of the Geluk tradition. Tri Rinpoche is the most senior of the ex-abbots of either the Gyuto or Gyumed Tantric Colleges. Currently, Shartse Choeje Rinpoche and Jangtse Choeje Rinpoche are the most senior ex-abbots of each of the Tantric Colleges, and will each, in turn, assume the Geluk leadership as Gaden Tripa.

The event webcast:
August 4th: Reception Ceremony for the 104th Gaden Tripa at Gaden Tri-Thok-Khang (Geluk International Foundation).

August 5th: Reception of the Gaden Tripa in the main hall by the abbots and senior monks of the Geluk monasteries followed by rituals and prayers, including the offering of white traditional scarves by the Gaden Tripa to the Throne (Shukdre), followed by the Long-Life Puja (Tenshug) for the newly enthroned Gaden Tripa.
