Subject: Teachers of both the Dalai and Panchen Lamas
Sep 17 2008 11:29 PM

Ganden Tripas are sometimes the Teachers of both the Dalai and Panchen Lamas.In the absence of or during the minority of a Dalai Lama, Ganden Tripas are sometimes requested to act as Regents of Tibet, fulfilling both the spiritual and political role of a King of Dharma.

For example, the late Ling Rinpoche has acted both as a Regent in the 14th Dalai Lama's minority and as the Dalai Lama's Root Guru.

Out of respect for the Dalai Lama's political authority, Heads of other traditions in Tibet will usually obtain official recognition from a Dalai Lama or His Regent before actual assumption of their role.

HH the present Sakya Trizin obtained teachings and official recognition as the Throne-Holder of the Sakya Tradition from HH the 14th Dalai Lama at the advice of the then Ganden Tri Rinpoche, Ling Rinpoche, while in Tibet.

HH the 100th Ganden Tri Rinpoche, Lobsang Nyima Rinpoche, was requested by HH the 14th Dalai Lama in 1995, to be the supreme Spiritual Head of the holy Gelugpa Tradition. Since then, His Holiness the Ganden Tri Rinpoche has served as the supreme ThroneHolder of Lama Tzongkhapa, untiringly working for the Dharma and all mother beings.
