The Upholders of Dharma in General, Gaden Tripas [Supreme Head of Geluk Tradition] and Abbots from Sera Mey

Sera Mey had produced many eminent saints and scholars among whom some had become regents of the government of Tibet while some became unsurpassable scholars proficient in both Sutra and Tantra that they attained the highest honor of becoming tutors to the Dalai Lamas. Many had become custodians of the Lamrin Tradition while others became prolific writers who left their legacies in the form of texts for the benefit of future aspirants. Some had become adepts who had reached very high level of attainments; many others had generated significantly reliable attainments and equaled the length of their lives with their practices.

A Tibetan expression for someone who had given up all concerns for this life and devoted the whole life to practice in solitude.

Sera Mey had produced nineteen Gaden Tripas,( Click here to view the list ) the supreme head of Geluk Tradition, who were revered like the pillars that hold the life of Tsongkhapa’s tradition. Many Sharpa Chojes and Jangtse Chojes [successors to the throne of Gaden Tripa ] from this monastery served their terms and helped the preservation and the spread of Dharma. Beginning from Khunkyen Jangchup Bhumpa untill today, the monastery had 89 abbots who shouldered both the religious and social responsibilities of the monastery with wisdom and compassion.
