The Story about His Eminence Asung Rinpoche
作者:柯日密咒洲    发布时间:2011/6/12      点击率:12182

  His Eminence Asung Rinpoche was born in Xinlong County, Ganzi, Sichuan Province. His father is Nyima and his mother is Niuler. He was born with a lot of auspicious signs and was named Tsewang Jamchen. When he was seven year old, his father was ill. So his father and uncle took him on a pilgrim to Lhasa. In the Jokhang Temple, a lama saw this young boy and talked to his father and uncle “This boy is a tulku.”

  They lived in Lhasa for a year. In the next year they pilgrimed to the Glorious Temple of Samye and Venerable Milarepa’s retreat site. Finally they arrived at the Khagong Monastery in Khagong, which is about 130 kilometers from Lhasa. This monastery was established by Namkha Nyingpo, one of the Twenty Five Principal Disciples of Guru Rinpoche. They worshipped to the monastery first. Then they went to a retreat cave beside the monastery. The boy told his father “I had lived in this cave before.” His father and uncle were quite astonished.

  At that time, an old lama at the age of eighty seven named Dzongha Choepel was taking retreat in the cave. As soon as he saw them come, he told them “Three days ago I knew that you were coming. So I have prayed for your peaceful arrival. I have been waiting for you for three days. It is so great that you are now here.” 

  Then the lama said he would like to give them a Long Life empowerment. When he took out a vajra and some treasures to prepare for the empowerment, the young tulku shouted out “This vajra and the treasures are mine!” The old lama refuted in a gentle voice “These are not yours. They belonged to Venerable Namkha Nyingpo.” The young tulku snatched the vajra and treasures from the old lama’s hands and held them in his arms and kept murmuring “These are mine! These are mine!” and then began crying. His father and uncle stood in amazement, as that was too unimaginable. The old lama then took out more dharma instruments, put on his desk and let the young boy to choose. The young tulku then picked out the dharma instruments, which had been used by his previous life – Venerable Namkha Nyingpo.

  The old lama talked to the tulku’s father and uncle “I have visualized in my meditation that an incarnation of Venerable Namkha Nyingpo will come back here. So I have prepared for the empowerment for this young tulku. Now I have confirmed that this little boy is the true incarnation of Namkha Nyingpo. His name should be Sangha Tenzin.” Then he handed those dharma instruments to the young tulku deferentially. He warned the father and uncle to keep this trip in secret. Then he invited the young tulku to stay. Asung Rinpoche’s father discussed with his uncle “There has never been any famous master recognizing him as an incarnation of Namkha Nyingpo. We’d better take him back to Changtai and get a confirmation from His Holiness Chomgy Ari Rinpoche. Ari Rinpoche is a very famous great master. His recognition is authoritative. Moreover, his recognition is also a terrific condition for his undertaking in the future.”

  After contemplation, the father told the old lama “We would like to go back to Palgyu to visit His Holiness Chomgy Ari Rinpoche. Once His Holiness recognizes him, we will bring him back to you. We will take the dharma instruments and treasures with us. As long as he is a real incarnation, then it does not matter where he is going to start his undertaking of benefiting the sentient beings.”

  After they went back to their hometown, his father took him to see Venerable Serab Yangdrul and Khenchen Jigme Phuntsog. These two great masters recognized him as the incarnation of Namkha Nyingpo congruously. Khenchen Jigme Phuntsog also confirmed “Whatever Ari Rinpoche recognized or said is the truth.” Then the father and son went to Ari Rinpoche’s retreat house. The father talked to Ari Rinpoche earnestly “I am an honest man and I am extremely confident in Your Holiness. If my son is a real tulku and will be of benefits to the sentient beings, then please tell me the truth. Although he was recognized in Lhasa, I did not leave him there, as I am more confident in your recognition and arrangement. Even if he is not a real tulku, please just tell me too. I can accept that. I can handle it in my heart.” The well-known emanation of Avalokiteshvara-Chomgy Ari Rinpoche replied in an unexpected way “Do you think you are worshiping to me? No. I think I am here to worship to Venerable Namkha Nyingpo instead. I have a very good connection to his incarnation. You should bring him here again this time next year. Then I will tell you about the arrangements and undertaking of this tulku.” At the end Chomgy Ari Rinpoche bestowed a new dharma name to the young tulku - “Thupten Samden Dzongpo”.

  Unfortunately, Asung Rinpoche’s father passed away in the next year. According to Ari Rinpoche’s command, Rinpoche and his uncle went to Changtai to visit Ari Rinpoche for the second time. Ari Rinpoche prophesied for him “There will be a temple built here and you will be the Abbot. There will be a lot of disciples from Tibet and Han areas coming to pursue dharma teachings and taking retreat here.” His Holiness Jamyang Lungtok Gyaltsen also made the prophecy that Asung Rinpoche would guide seventy thousand sentient beings towards the undertaking of ultimate liberation and benefiting all beings.

[Post Script]

  This is a topic about Tulku, or say, incarnation. A tulku is the teacher and guide to his disciples. So this is a very important and meaningful topic. No matter how many different ways to recognize a tulku in the Tibetan Buddhism, nor in which way a tulku is recognized, the most important thing is whether or not this tulku bears all the real merits in correspondence to his fame. If someone enjoys a big fame, or tells others that he was recognized by some great master, or proclaims that he is an emanation of a certain buddha or bodhisattva, this is not reliable at all. His Holiness Jamyang Lungtok Gyaltsen says in his “Advice on the Great Undertaking to Rescue All Sentient Beings from the Sufferings” that “Some people proclaim themselves that ‘I am a Tulku and a follower of this or that lineage.’ If he does not have such merits and qualities, nor does he understand the true nature of all phenomena, how can he be a real incarnation (tulku)? Therefore, only those with all the outer, inner and secret merits of a sacred and who command the Three Teachings and have the marks of enlightenment can be your gurus.”

  Therefore, it is vital for anyone that seeks ultimate liberation and eternal happiness to select his guru very prudently. As an ordinary person chooses his or her spouse very carefully, a wise practitioner should choose his guru with more diligence and prudence because the guru determines not only his happiness within his present life, but also the happiness in his future life times. Jamyang Lungtok Gyaltsen Rinpoche says “If someone creates faith to an impure object, he does not only have the fault of degeneration but also fail to gain any positive fruition. Therefore you should not create any faith in nor any evil views to an unfamiliar master. If the master does not have the correct marks and merits, the disciple will not be able to gain any positive results in front of such an impure object even if he creates faith (in the guru). If the believers offer wealth to this guru, these offerings are useless too because the object is impure. So remember not to create any faith in or evil views to a master with whom you are not familiar. Just take him indifferently.”
