|BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO RESPECTED KHENPO CHUCHENG QUPEI
Respected Khenpo Chucheng Qupei is from Dege County in the Ganzi Autonomous District of Sichuan Province. He became a monk at the Dege Gengqing Monastery at the age of eleven. In the shramanera (novice monk) class at the Dege Gengqing Monastery, he learned how to read and write Tibetan. He also learned scriptures, rules, and rituals primarily of the Sakya order. At the age of fifteen, he entered the Dzongsar Khamje Five Vidyas Buddhist Institute, which is extremely influential in Tibet. When he was seventeen years old, he received the precepts for monks from Lama Angwang Qupei Rongbo, a great master of the Sakya order in the Kham District. At nineteen, he completed his four years of study at the Khamje Five Vidyas Buddhist Institute, bid farewell to his master, Great Khenpo Baima Dangqiu, and left his homeland for India. There he met the holy virtuous one he dreamed of meeting—H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin, who is a true nirmanakaya of Manjushri Bodhisattva.
In his twelve years at the Sakya Advanced Buddhist Institute, Respected Khenpo Chucheng Qupei successfully learned all of the esoteric and exoteric dharma teachings from two famous khenpos—Khenpo Mima and Khenpo Jiacuo. Additionally, he studied and grasped profound Buddha-dharma theory and practice by following many eminent and virtuous masters of all of the main sects of Tibetan Buddhism. Of those masters, he primarily followed the venerable lotus flower holder, H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin; H.E. the Sakya Ngorpa Khenpo, Vajra Master Longdeng; the Sakya Tsharpa Dharma King, H.E. Chogye Trichen Rinpoche; and H.H. Dharma King Mindrolling Trichen of the Nyingma sect. Respected Khenpo Chucheng Qupei also taught at the Sakya Advanced Buddhist Institute for five years.
At a dharma assembly that took place in the year 2000 attended by over 10,000 monastics, H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin personally conferred upon Respected Khenpo Chucheng Qupei a graduation certificate from the Sakya Advanced Buddhist Institute and a hat that signified his academic degree and great erudition. In 2003, H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin formally conferred upon him position of khenpo along with the accompanying certificate and instructed him to return to Tibet to spread the true dharma of the Sakya lineage.
Following the mandate given to him by H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin, Respected Khenpo Chucheng Qupei established a society to learn a treatise called the Liang Li Treasure. H.H. Dharma King Sakya Trizin was very satisfied with the khenpo for such efforts.
