34th Gyalwa Menri Trizin
The first day of 2018, January 1st, is a very auspicious day.
At Menri Monastery, all the monks and nuns gathered to perform very special rituals. Together, they invoked all the special deities of Bon Ma Dhu Tsen Sum for a revelation prophesy of the 34th Gyalwa Menri Trizin.
His Eminence Ponlop Trinley Nyima Rinpoche led the ceremony. Two final pills remained in a crystal bowl. Through slow shaking, the first and second pills popped out of the bowl. The first pill was the abbot of Menri.
His Holiness 33rd Lungtok Tenpei Nyima and His Eminence Ponlop Trinley Nyima both have the last names Nyima, meaning Sun. Now they both pass along this name to Dawa Dhargye whose first name, Dawa, means Moon.
Now the sign of Moon softness light will serve the Bon.
Geshe Dawa Dhargye’s name was the first to appear. He is one of the most senior Geshe monks at Menri and is now His Holiness of Bon Gyalwa Menri Trizin 34th.
All Bonpos worldwide are happy to celebrate our new Abbot. We welcome you to Menri Monastery from February 16-21, 2018 for the induction of Geshe Dawa Dargyal as the 34th His Holiness of Bon Gyalwa Menri Trizin.
Many Tashi Delek.

Chongtul was given his childhood name of Namgyal Wangdhu by the Abbot of Yungdrung Ling. At the age of two, the Abbot of Yungdrung Ling explained to the Abbot of Menri Monastery, His Holiness Menri Trizin 33rd, that this boy was a reincarnated lama who was closely associated with both abbots during a previous lifetime, and would be very important in the preservation of Bon transmissions.
