34th Head of Bon tradition.
DHARAMSHALA, Jan. 2: Following the passing away of the previous Menri Trizin, the relevant authorities of the Bon tradition based at Pal Shenten Menriling Monastery in Dolanji in northern India on the first day of the new year appointed Venerable Geshe Dawa Dhargay as the new head of the oldest religion of Tibet and 34 in the lineage.
 
The 33rd spiritual head of the Bon tradition, Kyabje Menri Trizin Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, passed away on Sept. 14 aged 90, after having held the position since 1969.
 
The new Menri Trizin was appointed after a thorough process known as Lha Sung Den Tarwa, where names of candidates are removed through a process of elimination in consultation with protectors of the Bon tradition. The current proceedings to discover the new Menri Trizin were overseen by Menri Lopön Thrinley Nyima Rinpoche, Triten Norbutse Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche and other distinguished Bon Lamas, beginning from Dec. 19 and with approximately 60 candidates, all of whom reside in exile.
 
The 34th Menri Trizin Geshe Dawa Dhargay who was born in Sharkhog in northeastern Tibet’s Amdo province, was officially revealed yesterday at a ceremony held at Pal Shenten Menri ling monastery and attended by all senior spiritual leaders of Bon tradition including Kyabje Lopon Yangton Thinley Nyima Rinpoche, Khen Rinpoche Luntok Tenpa Yungdrung, Tulkus and dignitaries from the laity.
 
Exile Tibetan government’s Minister for Religion and Culture, Ven Karma Gelek Yuthok was quoted by CTA run Tibet.net as saying, “I heartily extend my warm congratulations and Tashi Delek to Geshe Dawa Dhargay, the new Menri Trizin of Bon tradition. I wish him all the success as the head of Bon tradition and pray all your efforts and hard work for the benefit of all sentient beings bear
