The Significance of Lineage Transmission in Transferrin g Indo - Tibetan Buddhism

Ein Vortrag von Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Seminarraum 1 des Instituts für Südasien-, Tibet- und Buddhismuskunde
Spitalgasse 2, Hof 2.7, 1090 Wien


Indo-Tibetan Buddhist practice systems have traditionally emphasized the direct transmission of teachings and blessings from teacher to student in an unbroken succession originating from an enlightened being. This line of transmission is understood as sustaining the authenticity and accuracy of Buddhist instructions as it is transferred over time and space from one generation of practitioners to the next. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, a scholar, lineage older, and transmitter of a number of Buddhist traditions including Mah?mudr? and Dzogchen, will discuss from a Buddhist perspective what is to be transmitted, the methods for transmission, and the overall meaning and significance of transmission according to the tradition itself.


Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist Master of the Kagyu Order. He was trained in all schools of Tibetan Buddhism under eminent masters of the tradition including HH the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa and HH Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche.

He was formally educated at the Namgyal Institute of Tibetology, Sikkim and Sampurnananda Sanskrit University, Varanasi, India and has served as the Tibetan Textbook Writer and Professor of Tibetan Studies in Sikkim for 25 years.

Since 1990 he has been travelling and teaching Buddhism and Meditation at universities, institutes and Buddhist centers worldwide. He also participates in various interfaith and Science and Buddhist dialogues. He has authored several books on Buddhism including The Ri-Me Philosophy of Jamgon Kongtrul the Great: A Study of the Buddhist Lineages of Tibet and Path to Buddhahood: Teachings on Gampopa's "Jewel Ornament of Liberation".
