Letter from H.E. Khensur Rinpoche, Abbot Emeritus of Gaden Shartse Monastery
H.E. Khen Rinpoche is the former Abbot of Gaden Shartse.
As the 101st Gaden Tripa, His Holiness Jetsun Lungrik Namgyal was the supreme head of the Gelug lineage. The major monasteries – Gaden, Drepung and Sera, as well as the famous Tantric colleges of Gyuto and Gyumed, all belong to the school of Gelug.
Retiring from his position in 2010, His Holiness is now known as the Gaden Trisur. As the Gaden Tripa however, His Holiness carried the same status as Lama Tsongkhapa on earth.
In his letter to the Gelug Vajrayana Buddhist Association Malaysia (GVBAM), His Holiness encourages GVBAM to seek H.E. Tsem Rinpoche’s advice on all matters relating to the Gelug tradition and inter-religious harmony.
