(TibetanReview.net, Jan03, 2018) – Followers of Tibet’s ancient, pre-Buddhist religion, known as Bonism, have a new spiritual head. He is Geshe Dawa Dhargay, the 34th Menri Trizin, elected from a list of nearly 60 candidates.

Geshe Dawa Dhargay was enthroned at the Pal Shenten Menri Ling Monastery at Dolanji in Solan District of Himachal Pradesh, India. Ven Karma Gelek Yuthok, Kalon (minister) of the Central Tibetan Administration’s Department of Religion and Culture, was among those who attended the ceremony.

Geshe Dawa Dhargay’s enthronement came after the death of his predecessor, the 33rd Menri Trizin Lungtok Tenpa’i Nyima Rinpoche, on Sep 14.

Geshe Dawa Dhargay was born at Sharkhog in Tibet’s traditional province of Amdo, most of which now forms part of today’s Qinghai Province.
