Tai Situpa,  1st, Chokyi Gyaltsen


Product Code: G00629

(1377-1448) He was the first incarnation to bear the title Tai Situ, conferred upon him in 1407 by the Chinese emperor Yong Lo of the Ming Dynasty. The complete title as it was given in Chinese is quite lengthy and is often shortened to Kuang Ming Tai Situ, which conveys the gist of it and it is translated "far-reaching, unshakeable, great master, holder of the command." Chokyi Gyaltsen was a close disciple of the fifth Karmapa and was appointed by him to the position of head instructor of Karma Gon, the Karmapa's chief monastery at the time, located in Eastern Tibet.
