Geshe Tendar

Tendar Rinpoche

Geshe Tendar (previous and current incarnations)

The previous incarnation of Geshe Tendar was a great scholar and practitioner of the higher tantras. He was renowned for his great learning of Sutras and Tantras, specializing particularly in the higher Tantras. He was a great master of the most rare rituals as he was a direct disciple of the two great Lamas, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

He was often requested to give initiations of the higher Tantras within Gaden and abroad. He often also gave the life empowerment of Dorje Shugden (sogtae) many times.

Dorje Shugden, while in trance of Kuten Lama (Gaden’s oracle) formally recognized the unmistaken incarnation of Geshe Tendar in Mongolia. The previous Geshe Tendar was also one of the Gurus of Kuten Lama.

    Geshe Tendar was a great teacher and scholar and had contributed a lot to the spread of Buddhism outside Tibet. I have no doubt his reincarnation will do the same.

    The previous incarnation of Geshe Tendar, a great scholar and practitioner of both sutra and tantra( especially of the higher Tantras) is best remembered for his great contribution to the spread of the Gelugpa lineage teachings in faraway Phagri, in a remote corner of Tibet.

    Being from the Ganden Shartze College, he established a monastery in Phagri as a branch of the Ganden Shartze College. He also engaged in intensive retreats in the retreat hermitage he had built in the mountains, at the request of the local people there.

    Being a direct disciple of the two highly renowned and influential masters, Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche(whom he greatly revered), it naturally followed that his Dharmapala was also Dorje Shugden.

    It is also Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden, who in a trance of the oracle of Ganden, recognized the “unmistaken incarnation of Geshe Tendar in Mongolia”. May his incarnation continue his work of spreading the pure Dharma of Je Tsongkhapa’s lineage to the far reaches of the world, for the benefit of all beings.

    Although the previous incarnation of Geshe Tendar was not a Rinpoche. He has been recognised as a very great Scholar in Sutra and Tantra specializing in higher Tantras. Being deciples of 2 great Lamas Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. He is known for his rare Rituals. He has often been requested to give initiations of Tantra. And also empowerments of Dorje Shugden. Oracle Kuten Lama took trance of Dorje Shugden at Ganden Monastery and officially recognised his new incarnation. His previous incarnation was also one of the Gurus of Kuten Lama. I hope his new incarnation will follow the footsteps of his previous incarnations.
