Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lungtok Gyatso (1805-1815), also spelled Lungtog Gyatso and Luntok Gyatso, was the 9th Dalai Lama of Tibet. Lungtok Gyatso was born in 1805 near Choekor Monastery in Dan Chokhor, a small village in the historical region of Kham to Tenzin Choekyong and Dhondup Dolma. In 1807, he was recognized as the reincarnation of the Eighth Dalai Lama and was escorted to Lhasa with great ceremony. In 1810, he was enthroned at the Potala Palace on the Golden Throne of the Ganden Po-drang Government. He took his novice vows from the Panchen Lama, who gave him the name Lungtok Gyatso. This same year the elderly Regent, Ta-task Nga-wang Gon-po died and the De-mo Tul-ku Nga-wang Lo-zang Tub-ten Jig-me Gya-tso (d. 1819) was appointed to replace him.show more
