  • Announcement: On the 16th of March, 2000, Luding Shabdrung Rinpoche was enthroned at Ngor Pal E-Wam Choden Monastery, Manduwalla, India, as the 76th abbot of the line. The position of the head abbot of Ngor was traditionally held for a three year period in which extensive teachings are given almost non-stop. The three year periods alternate between the four monastic Houses (labrangs); Luding, Khangsar, Thartse and Phende. Due to the Chinese take-over of Tibet in 1959 and the disruption to the Ngor monastic system Luding Khen Rinpoche has effectively lead and maintained the Ngor School up to the present.

NEWS 1998

Tarig Tulku Rinpoche of the Ngor School of Sakya passed away peacefully on Friday May 15th, 1998, at Sakya Tenphel Ling, Singapore.

Tarig Rinpoche was the head of the Tsechen Shedrupling Monastery at Boudhanath, Kathmandu, Nepal. Since fleeing Kham, Tibet, in the late 1950s Rinpoche has tirelessly strived to meticulously preserve the Sakya teachings and traditions according to the Ngorpa custom. He was exceptionally generous to everybody be it Dharma teachings or material goods. He was a master of the concept of 'auspicious occurrence' (tendrel yagpo du) and performed all actions in a humble manner free of haughtiness.

Rinpoche was not only a great Buddhist practitioner and Dharma Teacher, but exemplified on a day to day level how to properly care for those under his protection, family and neighbours, how to support the Dharma practice of others and be a sponsor for the propagation of the Dharma as a whole.

All Sakya students owe a debt of kindness to this humble lama who blessed the lives of all of those he came in contact with. May his Dharma activities live on through his example and the inspiration that he engendered in us all.
