Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche

Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche is the head of the Trungram lineage and one of the highest tulkus of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He has received extensive transmissions of the Nyingma lineages, teaches in the spirit of the nonsectarian Rimé movement, he is the first incarnate lama to earn a Ph. D. in the West, having completed a doctoral program in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Harvard University. Recognized for his ability to modernize ancient Buddhist teachings for today's challenges, he is dedicated to the value of education in bringing wisdom to life. To realize this vision, he has founded organizations throughout the United States. Born into a Nepalese Sherpa family, Trungram Gyalwa was recognized by Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, 16th Karmapa, as the 4th Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche, the reincarnation of the 3rd Trungram Gyalwa. Trungram Gyalwa was born on the mountain of Tsari, near Daporijo, Arunachal Pradesh, into a Sherpa family from Nepal; as an infant, Trungram Gyalwa had a transparent abdomen, which led his parents to take him to Nepal to seek out the 16th Karmapa, supreme head of the Kagyu lineage.

In a public audience at Swayambhunath, before his parents had a chance to speak with the Karmapa, the 16th Karmapa recognized the child on sight as the “intentionally reborn” manifestation of the 3rd Trungram Gyalwa. The 16th Karmapa explained Trungram Gyalwa's marking as a symbol of his predecessor's realization of Mahamudra practice; the 16th Karmapa proclaimed the boy as the 4th Trungram Gyalwa, with the formal name of “Trungram Karma Tenpai Gyaltsen Trinlay Kunkyab Pal Sangpo” and bestowed him with dharma robes. He gave him Buddhist refuge vows, wrote a long-life prayer for him. Trungram Gyalwa was enthroned at the main seat of the Karmapa, in Sikkim, India. Gyalwa Trulku was the name of the first incarnation of the Trungram Gyalwa lineage. Gyalwa was his personal name. Since this first Trugram Gyalwa belonged to the Trungram teaching lineage and was well respected by people, his full name was Trungram Gyalwa Trulku Rinpoche; this name is quite long, so he used Gyaltrul, the shortened form of Gyalwa Trulku, making the name Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche.

The 4th Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche is known as Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche, and, to a lesser degree, Drungram Gyaltrul, Tenpai Gyaltsen, Gyalwa Lama, Gyalwa Trulku. He himself prefers to write Trungram Gyalwa, although his official name is either H. E. Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche or H. E. Trungram Gyaltrul Rinpoche. In the west, he uses Trungram Gyalwa Rinpoche, PhD. Trungram Gyalwa's studies began at Rumtek Monastery at age three. There he received a traditional monastic education, followed by studies on Tibetan and Buddhist literature and philosophy at Jamyang Khang school, he took the vows of a novice monk, but did not take full ordination, returned his novice vows before attending university. Trungram Gyalwa entered the Karma Shri Nalanda Institute for Higher Buddhist Studies, in Rumtek, where he studied the traditional fields of Buddhist philosophy, epistemology, cosmology, debates, poetry, literature and meditation. During his time at Nalanda, he, with others, helped to set up and run the Students' Welfare Union of Nalanda.

He served as one of the three main teaching assistants of Nalanda Institute. He earned the title of Ka-rabjampa from Nalanda, received the degree of Acharya, or Master of Buddhist Philosophy, with First Class Honors, from Sampurnanant Sanskrit University, in Varanasi, India. Reflecting the non-sectarian approach of his predecessor, Trungram Gyalwa's teachers come from all four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, he studied with some of the greatest masters of recent years the 16th Karmapa and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. He received most of his teachings and empowerments from these two Rinpoches and from Khenchen Trinley Paljor Rinpoche, his other Buddhist teachers include the Dalai Lama, Sakya Trizin, the late Ugyen Tulku Rinpoche, the late Khamtrul Rinpoche, Trulshik Rinpoche, the late Kalu Rinpoche, the late Salje Rinpoche and the late Gendun Rinpoche. He studied extensively under Khenpo Choedrak Rinpoche. Besides traditional Buddhist education, Trungram Gyalwa studied liberal arts at Kirkwood College in Iowa, USA, at Newbury College in Massachusetts, USA.

He worked with Professor Donald Lopez as a visiting scholar at the University of Michigan, was involved in a teaching exchange program and sutra translation there. He studied Chinese for six months in Taiwan at the Language Learning Center of National Taiwan Normal University, he is fluent in Tibetan, Nepali, Sherpa and has a good knowledge of Sanskrit and French. Trungram Gyalwa entered the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences as a doctoral student in the Department of Sanskrit and Indian Studies, his concentration was on Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies with special emphasis on comparative studies. He was awarded a Ph. D. in 2004, with a dissertation on Gampopa, the most prominent disciple of Milarepa, focusing on Gampopa's seminal role in the development of the Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. Trungram Gyalwa gave his first public teaching as a young boy, to visitors from European countries, he taught the essence of the practice of Avalokiteshvara. The next year he gave a teaching on the Thirty-seven Practices of Bodhisattvas to the monks of Rumtek, pra

Robert Kenedi

Prof Robert Maximilian Kenedi FRSE was a Hungarian-born engineer and bioengineer. He was born in Hungary on 19 March 1921. In 1938 he left Hungary to study in Britain, choosing the Royal Technical College in Glasgow where he studied civil engineering, receiving his degree from Glasgow University in 1941; as a foreign national from an enemy country, the Second World War impacted upon him. He was obliged to serve two years within the Auxiliary War Service; this was somewhat similar to being a prisoner of war but is to have involved unpaid farm labour, rather than internment. Following appeal he was released from these duties in 1943, he returned to the Royal Technical College to lecture in Civil and Mechanical Engineering. During his first ten years he worked on studies on the strength of materials and strain gauge technology in thin-walled materials. During this period he developed a series of used Design Codes for the British steel industry, allowing great refinement of sections; the university awarded him a doctorate in 1949.

In the 1950s he combined forces with Prof Tom Gibson a Glasgow plastic surgeon, to apply his engineering knowledge to human cell structure. They began an internationally renowned programme of biological tissue mechanics. In 1963, with the help of a large grant from the British Medical Research Council, he founded the Bioengineering Unit at Strathclyde University; the university made him Head of the unit. A further grant from the Wolfson Foundation allowed the creation of the Wolfson Centre within the unit; the unit broadened its range of study, involving prosthetics and artificial organs. This led to the creation of the National Centre for Orthotics in Strathclyde. In 1965 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, his proposers were Anthony Elliot Ritchie, Peter Pauson, Donald Pack, Adam Tomson. In 1980 he left Strathclyde to go to Hong Kong Polytechnic for four years. In 1982 he was awarded the Herbert R Lissner Biomedical Engineering Award by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

He died at home in Milngavie on 7 September 1998. He was survived by his wife Jean. Perspectives in Biomedical Engineering
