萨迦达钦法王简介

BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO H.H. DHARMA KING JIGDAL DAGCHEN SAKYA

萨迦达钦法王是位于美国西雅图的藏传佛教萨迦寺庙的创始人和导师,也是整个萨迦派位居第二的领袖。

H.H. Dharma King Jigdal Dagchen Sakya is the founder and principal guru of the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. He is also the second highest leader of the entire Sakya order.

萨迦达钦法王于1929年出生在西藏西南部的昆族的彭措宫,他的父亲是当时的萨迦派的总教主——萨迦天津法王。作为未来的萨迦派的领袖和萨迦法座的持有者,达钦仁波且自小就接受他的父亲和其他优秀的喇嘛们的严格教育,系统地学习了小乘、大乘和金刚乘的理论知识。然后,仁波且又完整地接受了昆族从未间断的普巴金刚、喜金刚和道果法的传承灌顶,这些都是萨迦教法的精髓。此后,仁波且进行了长时期的研习和闭关,并为萨迦派的僧人和在家居士传授道果法等。

H.H. Dharma King Jigdal Dagchen Sakya was born into the Phuntsok branch of the Khon lineage in southwestern Tibet in 1929. His father was at that time the supreme leader of the Sakya order H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trichen. As future leader and throne-holder of the Sakya order, H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche received a strict education from his father and other distinguished lamas beginning in his childhood. He systematically learned the teachings of the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana. The rinpoche later received the unbroken Khon lineage transmission of the Sakya Vajrakilaya and Hevajra initiations and the complete Lamdre Tsogshe (Path and Result), which are the main teachings of the Sakya tradition. Following this, the rinpoche went into a long series of study and meditation retreats. He then conferred the Lamdre Tsogshe to monks, nuns, and laypersons within the Sakya order.

在仁波且的父亲圆寂以后,遵照萨迦派的传统,应将萨迦总教主之法权地位交给圣母宫萨迦天津法王掌教,但鉴于当时天津法王尚年幼,故由达钦仁波且掌管三年萨迦总教主法权。后来,达钦仁波且到东藏地区继续学习,以增加知识和阅历。在这里,仁波且遇到了他的两位根本上师:宗萨钦哲.蒋阳秋吉罗卓和顶果钦哲.若赛达哇,这两位大师引导仁波且进入无门户之见的佛法。在学习完成之后,仁波且在东藏地区建立了17所萨迦学院和10个闭关中心,并举行了灌顶和加持。1955年,仁波且在东藏为1200多人举行了道果教授。

After the passing of his father, the position and authority of the supreme leader of the Sakya order should have been handed down to Dharma King Sakya Trizin of the Drolma Palace according to the tradition of the Sakya order. However, because Dharma King Sakya Trizin was at that time too young, H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche exercised the authority of supreme leader of the Sakya order for three years. Later, H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche traveled to eastern Tibet to increase his knowledge and experience of the dharma. There the rinpoche met his two root gurus H.H. Dzongsar Khyentse Jamyang Chokyi Lodro and H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rabsal Dawa. Those two masters helped to formulate the rinpoche’s non-sectarian approach to Buddhism. After completing his studies, the rinpoche bestowed initiations and teachings throughout eastern Tibet and established 17 Sakya colleges and 10 retreat centers in that region. In 1955, he conferred the Lamdre Tsogshe to over 1,200 practitioners in eastern Tibet.

1959年,达钦法王全家到达印度,随后,应邀到美国西雅图的华盛顿大学进行西藏文化的研究。

基于此因缘,达钦法王在西雅图创立了藏传佛教萨迦庙,向西方社会传播佛法。从此,法王不间断地开示、传法,其足迹遍及美国、加拿大、欧洲和亚洲。现在,达钦法王是公认的萨迦派的领袖之一。

In 1959, H.H. Dharma King Dagchen moved to India with his entire family. He was later invited to participate in a research project on Tibetan civilization at the University of Washington. H.H. Dharma King Dagchen availed himself of those karmic conditions and founded the Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism in Seattle, which spreads the Buddha-dharma in the West. He has given extensive empowerments and teachings throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. H.H. Dharma King Dagchen is universally recognized as one of the leaders of the Sakya order.
