Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang Pari Nirvana day

10/19/2018

Event: Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang Pari-Nirvana day: Tsog offering

Date: Sunday, October 21st

Location: Gaden KhachoeShing Monastery

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang was one of the foremost Tibetan Buddhist Masters of our time, taking birth at the turn of this century and passing away in 1981 at the age of eighty-one.

Not only had he followed in age exactly the example of the Enlightened Buddha, but also through his precious activities and in particular through his extraordinary method and capacity of teaching he fulfilled the purpose of countless beings and the teachings of the Buddha, particularly the tradition of Je Tsong Khapa. All the great Masters and the followers of this tradition were brought up by his compassionate spiritual guidance.

The most outstanding personage among his disciples is His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang served His Holiness first as philosophical assistant, then as personal tutor, together with Kyabje Ling Dorje Chang, for altogether fifty years. Not only did he offer to His Holiness studies from the elementary level up to the highest tantric transmissions, he was also the backbone of the struggle against the Chinese occupation at the most difficult and confused time of Tibetan history. The escape of His Holiness the Dalai Lama from Tibet in 1959 was also thanks to the wisdom and efforts of Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang.

Up to the end of his life Trijang Rinpoche continuously turned the Wheel of Dharma for the sake of all sentient beings. The flourishing of Dharma in the West is also directly and indirectly connected with him, because of his own teachings as well as the precious activities of his disciples, such as Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, Ven. Geshe Rabten, Ven. Lama Yeshe and many more. Without him the situation of Tibetan Buddhism in the West would be completely different.
