“By becoming aware of what is going on in our mind we can learn how to deal with it.”

Jamgon Kongtrul the 3rd and Traleg Rinpoches

The Early Translation era of Tibetan Buddhism’s lost generation exemplar. Lost on Tibetans. Their loss.bOur gain.

Lost to us, thanks to Tibetans.

Traleg Rinpoche disappeared as a young man only to reappear years later in Australia.The above quoted pith advise is his. Unforgivably Ogyen Trinley Dorje saw fit to condemn Traleg Rinpoche’s reincarnation to a life sentence as a prisoner of the Chinese. So much for his “escape” narrative. If Ogyen Trinley Dorje had in fact escaped he never would have condemned Rinpoche’s reincarnation such a fate.

Jamgon Kongtrul the 3rd chose death rather than recognize Ogyen Trinley Dorje as the reincarnation of the 16th Karmapa. Jamgon Kongtrul the 4th hasn’t been seen since he disappeared from Pullahari monestery. He has not been seen since he disrobed. Perhaps he will reappear somewhere as Traleg Rinpoche did. Time will tell.

This is about us, not them.
