September 2017 will always remain rather special to Lee and Monika as a section of the Kryon India tour included a visit to the area where the Dalai Lama now lives in exile. “Indeed the high point moment of the tour,” said Lee, “was when His Holiness The Dalai Lama granted our group a private audience. This man is one of the most beloved on the planet, and his message to us was about the "oneness" of all people on Earth. Then he looked at me in the eye and said with a twinkle, I'm not kidding!" What a day that was!
The Dalai Lama belongs to the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, which is the largest and most influential tradition in Tibet.
The institution of the Dalai Lama is a relatively recent one. There have been only 14 Dalai Lamas in the history of Buddhism, and the first and second Dalai Lamas were given the title posthumously.
According to Buddhist belief, the current Dalai Lama is a reincarnation of a past lama who decided to be reborn again to continue his important work, instead of moving on from the wheel of life. A person who decides to be continually reborn is known as tulku.
Buddhists believe that the first tulku in this reincarnation was Gedun Drub, who lived from 1391-1474 and the second was Gendun Gyatso.
However, the name Dalai Lama, meaning Ocean of Wisdom, was not conferred until the third reincarnation in the form of Sonam Gyatso in 1578.
His overriding theme of Oneness in the world is echoed throughout the entire teachings of Kryon. It is a beautiful honour for us to feel the connection to this wonderful man whose life is dedicated to love, compassion and joy!
