Descendants of Buddha Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche

Post by kalden yungdrung » Mon Aug 17, 2015 1:57 am

Tashi delek DW members,

For many people not so well-known that we have in Bon direct descendants of the Bon Buddha Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche.
They are seen in the world of Bon as very precious these two brothers of the Shen Clan, one of the 5 important Bon clans.


Below Lama Tsukpu Namdrol Rinpoche is welcomed in Bon Nangzhik Monastery, eastern Tibet.

By Raven Cypres Wood:


Over 18, 000 years ago, in the ancient realm of Olmo Lungrik, the founder of the Yungdrung Bön spiritual tradition was born. The enlightened Lord Tönpa Shenrap Miwoche was born into the human realm as a prince. He later adopted the life as a monastic in order to display the path of renunciation to his followers. However, prior to this, he was married and had sons and daughters. The direct descendants of this Shen lineage have continued until this very day. Currently, there are two sons who are direct descendants of Lord Tönpa Shenrap.

These 2 Shen Brothers are named:
Murik Shen Yungdrung Rangdrol Nyima Rinpoche & Shen Tsukpu Namdrol Gyaltsen Rinpoche




In November of 2014, His Holiness, the supreme 33rd Menri Trizen Lungtok Tenpé Nyima offered prayers to both descendants.

EMAHO!

Highest praise for the best of crown ornaments,

Storehouse of the ocean of Sutra, Tantra and unsurpassed division of teachings,

From the proper understanding of the profound meaning of the innermost essence,

May the victory banner of liberation and realization be established!

EMAHO!

Essence of the king of doctrines, the supreme Yungdrung Bön,

Distilled essence of the teachings of renunciation, transformation and liberation,

Having raised a stronghold through the dynamic energy of self-liberated awareness,

May the sun disc of realization and liberation eternally appear!

Tashi delek,


First a happy loasar :namaste


Lopon Tenzin Namdak la, gives here his visions about the Mu clan.(thought it was always named Shen clan .....)
This clan is the blood line of the Buddha Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche, or the family lineage.
I guess it is in the world of Buddhism a very special case that there is a family lineage , stemming direct of a Buddha.
In the world of Vajrayana, there are no family members known (in so far i know), of the Buddha Shakyamuni lineage. Only the Masters of the Lineage are known here.

THE SHEN CLAN:


On the right, Shensey Yungdrung Rangdrol Rinpoche
In the middle, Shensey Norbu Wangyal (The Father)
On the left, Shen Tsukpu Namdrol Gyaltsen Rinpoche

Like explained earlier, Bön has descendants of their Buddha Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche.

In Indian Buddhism this is not the case.
Here we don´t have descendants of the Buddha´s son Rahula, as far as i am informed.

Tashi delek,

The Shen Clan is based on the direct descendants of the Bön Buddha Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche.
For Bön and Bönpos a very important clan, because it is a prove of their Buddha.

Here the complete Holy Family at their home. :namaste:

Tashi delek,

His Holiness Shen Tsukpu Namdrol Gyaltsen Rinpoche @ Tsedrug Monastery in eastern Tibet.
This is the place where Buddha Drenpa Namkha lived one time.

His Holiness is seen as a precious Jewel in the Yungdrung Bön Tradition. He frequents Tsedrug Monstery very often.

Ummmmmm... Might that have something to do with the fact that Rahula became a monastic at a rather young age?

It also probably wouldn't be particularly relevant if we did, from a Buddhist perspective. Though of course, there are other hereditary relationships within Tibetan Buddhism that are important, Khon lineage etc.
