His Eminence Taktra Rinpoche (previous Regent of Tibet)

Taktra Rinpoche

Ven. Taktra Rinpoche

Taktra Rinpoche, was a Tibetan monk and regent of Tibet, who succeeded the fifth Reting Rinpoche, Jamphel Yeshe Gyaltsen, at the beginning of 1941. He was responsible for raising and educating His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso.

When the 14th Dalai Lama was still a boy, he was supposed to have received his ordination vows from the Regent Reting himself. However, Reting did not have the confidence to grant ordination vows because he had damaged his own moral discipline. It was generally known that he was engaging in many actions that were inappropriate for a monk. So, because of this, he requested his own Teacher, the elderly Taktra Rinpoche, to hold the position of Regent for three years, and during that time to teach the Buddhist way of life and grant ordination vows to the Dalai Lama. Taktra Rinpoche agreed to this request.

  1. This is interesting, that the fifth Reting Rinpoche, Jamphel Yeshe Gyaltsen, knew his own short-coming and did the right thing. He stepped down for 3 years so that the young 14th Dalai Lama could be educated by the elderly Taktra Rinpoche, the fifth Reting Rinpoche’s very own teacher.

    This also showed that Taktra Rinpoche has flawless morals and has kept his vows perfectly to be able to teach the Buddhist way of life and grant ordination vows to the Dalai Lama.

    If Taktra Rinpoche is flawed he could not have given ordination vows to the Dalai Lama. Also, whatever, he taught would not be good either, and the Dalai Lama’s education would be flawed too.

    So, by extrapolation, if Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the junior tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama was wrong, then the Dalai Lama would have received wrong teachings. Then, whatever teachings that the Dalai Lama gives would be flawed too.

    How very interesting.

Contemplate This

.…Instead of turning away people who practise Dorje Shugden, we should be kind to them. Give them logic and wisdom without fear, then in time they give up the ‘wrong’ practice. Actually Shugden practitioners are not doing anything wrong. But hypothetically, if they are, wouldn’t it be more Buddhistic to be accepting? So those who have views against Dorje Shugden should contemplate this. Those practicing Dorje Shugden should forbear with extreme patience, fortitude and keep your commitments. The time will come as predicted that Dorje Shugden’s practice and it’s terrific quick benefits will be embraced by the world and it will be a practice of many beings.
