Dharamsala, April 7 -- A nine-year-old boy
recongnised as Tulku Tsenyi Khentrul Tenzin
Tseten Rinpoche was on Monday formally enthroned
as the reincarnation of late Geshe Lobsang Gyatso
by the Dharamsala-based Institute of Buddhist Dialectics (IBD).

Late Geshe Lobsang Gyatso, who founded the IBD
and the College for Higher Tibetan Studies in
Sarah, also in Dharamsala, was assassinated by a
group of assailants allegedly affiliated to
Dhoegyal or, Dorjee Shugden Devotee’s Charitable and Religious Society.

Senior officials of the Central Tibetan
Administration and, representatives from various
monasteries and NGOs attended the religious
coronation ceremony at the Main Tibetan Temple (Tsuglagkhang).

Tulku Tsenyi Khentrul Tenzin Tseten Rinpoche was
born on 14 May 2001 in Ladakh to Tsering Gyaltsen
and Kesang Yangkyi, who were also present during the enthronement.

Tenzin Tseten was recognised by His Holiness the
Dalai Lama as the new reincarnation of late Geshe
Lobsang Gyatso on 1 February 2006.

According to IBD’s website, the late Geshe was
born in 1928 in a small village in eastern Tibet.
He was ordained at the age of eleven, and later
traveled to central Tibet to study at Drepung
Monastery. Fleeing Tibet in 1959, he founded the
Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala
under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

"The founding of the Institute of Buddhist
Dialectics and College for Higher Tibetan Studies
Sarah is the work for which Lobsang Gyatso will
be best remembered," the Institute of Buddhist
Dialectics mentioned in its website.

The institute described the late Geshe as a
"Tibetan patriot," "fearless social critic and a deeply spiritual man."
