We’re very happy to announce that our spiritual director, Gankar Rinpoche, was installed as Lama Umze (Associate Abbot) at Gyuto Monastery in India on December 27, 2020. The enthronement ceremony was attended by only the monks of the monastery and a few guests, because of the COVID-1 pandemic. Rinpoche forwarded these pictures for all of us who could not be there, so we can share the spirit of the day’s events.
After serving his term as Lama Umze, he will next serve a term as abbot of the monastery, and will then enter the line of succession for holder of the Ganden Throne, the head of the Gelugpa order.
To His Eminence Gankar Rinpoche, the lamp of the Dharma and sublime spiritual guide,
With salutations and great joy we have learned that Your Eminence has been appointed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as Gyuto Monastery’s LamaUmzey (Assistant Abbot). All the center members and Rinpoche’s students wish to extend our sincere congratulations. Upon ascending the great throne of Gyuto LamaUmzey, may Rinpoche follow the footsteps of the prior throne holders and like the rising moon, may rinpoche’s holy activities of preserving dharma and benefiting sentient beings rise and grow without limit. May we the students remain in Rinpoche’s kind care and be blessed with the shower of dharma teachings.
