Orgyen Trinley Dorje
BiographyUrgyen or Orgyen Trinley Dorje was born the June 26th 1985 in a family from nomads of the Kham (South-eastern of the Tibet), from Karma Döndrub Tashi and his Loga wife. Just like its predecessors, predicting by letter them Reincarnation, the 16th Karmapa had left a text found in 1992 in an amulet which it had given to Taï Sitou Rinpoché. In 1992, Orgyen Trinley Dorje was discovered by a team sent to the Tibet by Taï Sitou Rinpoché.
The June 7th 1992, the 14th Dalaï Lama recognized officially Orgyen Trinley Dorje like 17th Karmapa. The June 27th 1992, is 20 days later, the Chinese authorities also recognized it, acceptor thus the choice of the 14th Dalaï Lama. Orgyen Trinley Dorje was led to the monastery of Tsourphou, seat traditional of the Karmapa S, close to Lhassa and the September 27th of this same year, it was established there by Taï Sitou Rinpoché and Gyaltsab Rinpoché. Number 3 in the religious hierarchy Tibetan with the Dalaï Lama and the Panchen LAMA, the 17th Karmapa is the only LAMA réincarné to be recognized at the same time by the Chinese Dalaï Lama and Government. However, with the wire of time, the heavy constraints imposed by the Chinese administration appeared a major hurdle with its formation.
Also, at 14 years, made it the courageous decision to flee its country. 17th Karmapa planned its escape from the Tibet controlled by China. The resolution of 17th Karmapa became firmer whereas it was not authorized to see its tutor, Taï Sitou Rinpoché, and that in 1998 an attempted murder on its person is suggested after the discovery of two Chinese intruders equipped with knives and explosives to the monastery of Tsourphou. In December 1999, with some companions chosen, it courageously undertook the crossing of the Himalayas which, at the price of good of difficulties and dangers, were going to carry out it to the residence of the Dalaï Lama, in the north of India, with Dharamsala. On arrival of the 17th Karmapa, the January 5th 2000, the Dalaï Lama declared that " there was no other alternative" ; he added " I think that the day of our return with a certain degree of freedom to Tibet will come. I think that I will carry out that during my vie". The 17th Karmapa expressed its wish to remain in India. He in particular declared " the Buddhist Teaching most important is the compassion, but to try to practice it, one must be libre". It wish that with the inspiration of the Dalaï Lama, " the whole of the people of Tibet will be soon able to gain its liberté". Tashi Wangdi, Minister for the Religion and the Culture of the Government Tibetan in exile had explained why the 17th Karmapa was very anxious by the erosion of the culture Tibetan to Lhassa: " he wants to really work with the cultural development and monk of the people, but is very anxious by repression concerning the religious activities and the dilution deliberated on the culture Tibetan by the autorités". The majority of the large Masters of the Bouddhisme Tibetan were constrained to exile Tibet because of absence of freedom and the totalitarian policy which prevails there, as we recalled the escape from the 17th Karmapa the day before the year 2000.
