Description Contents
 
Even the most casual contact with the culture, politics, or religion of Tibet and the surrounding region brings outsiders face-to-face with the institution of reincarnate spiritual masters. In a tradition that is both uniquely Tibetan and genuinely Buddhist, past masters are identified as small children, installed in their predecessor's monastery in a ceremony called enthronement, and educated to continue the work of their former incarnation. This custom has provided a principal source of spiritual renewal for Himalayan Buddhists for the past thousand years.
The introduction places the subject of reincarnate meditation masters within two major contexts-in the activity of bodhisattvas and in modern Tibetan society, where the reappearance of past masters is both perfectly natural and profoundly moving.
Part One contains an interview with Tai Situpa Rinpoche, a contemporary reincarnate master who is often requested to find and recognize other reincarnate masters.
Part Two contains a translation of a text by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye which offers a traditional view of the enthronement of reincarnate masters.
