Join us for a teaching topic on Monday, Nov. 20 at 10 AM. Holy Nativity Parish hosts His Eminence the 9th Tulku Neten Rinpoche on the Practice of Compassion & Wisdom.
Biography: There were sixteen renowned Arhats in India. The Neten Rinpoche's lineage can be traced back to the 11th Arhat, named Lam Tran Ten Pharpha LamChung (Sanskrit name ChudaPantaka), who was reincarnated many times in both India and Tibet as Mahasiddha Bodhisattvas and Tsangchung Sangye Pasang, a disciple of the Great Lama Je Tsongkhapa.
The 1st Neten Rinpoche was the Tulku (reincarnated Lama) of Tsangchung Sangye Pasang and was the one who built the Jungpa Monastery in Lithang-Kham, Tibet. The present His Eminence Tulku Neten Rinpoche was born just over one year after the passing away of the 8th Tulku Neten Rinpoche Ngawang Lobsang Kunga. In the year 1986, His Holiness the Dalai Lama graciously recognized him as the 9th reincarnated Tulku Neten Rinpoche Tenzin Gelek, Lama-Abbot of the Jungpa Monastery. By this time, he has been already a great scholar at the Sera Mey Monastic University in south India and has won the respect of the other monks both as a Dharma Teacher and a Debater.
His Eminence Tulku Neten Rinpoche secured the highest Geshe Lharampa Degree (Ph.D in Buddhist Sutra Studies ) and soon afterwards, he joined the Gyumed Tantric Monastery for higher Tantric studies. After four years of strenuous studies and practice, he appeared for the final examination in the presence of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Abbots of Gyumed and other monasteries. He then received the advanced degree of Ngagrampa ( highest degree in Tantric Studies ) and accepted the position of Discipline Master at the Gyumed Tantric Monastery. Later on he went back and taught Dharma, to sanghas at the SeraMey Monastic University.
Since the year 2006, H.E Tulku Neten Rinpoche has been residing in Toronto but travels extensively across the
globe for public talks and giving teachings to religious, educational, healthcare and social institutions.
