black temple

, White, and Haa Gonpa temples Local historians maintain that two important temples in Haa district, the Black Temple and the White Temple were built at the same time as Kyerchu Temple in Paro (Paro, Bhutan) in the 7th century AD. The two temples can be found near each other at the sacred site known as ''Miri Punsum'', or "The Three Brother Hills." A third temple, ''Haa Gonpa'', was built at further up the valley at the site where a lame pigeon, actually a bodhisattva in disguised form, was found by a local farmer who was drawn to the spot by a mysterious fire seen on several successive nights and by the unexplained sounds of oboes and trumpets (musical instruments closely associated with Bhutanese and Tibetan monasteries (monastery)). # Palchen Chökyi Döndrup (1695–1732) was born in Yilmo, Nepal and was taken to Tibet at age 7. He received teachings and instructions from the 11th Karmapa before his death. The Shamarpa in turn, recognized and enthroned 12th Karmapa (Changchub Dorje) as the 12th Karmapa and acted as his Root-guru. # Könchog Geway Jungnay (1733–1741) was born in Paro (Paro, Bhutan) in Bhutan, and was discovered by the 13th Karmapa, 13th Karmapa (Dudul Dorje) but lived only until age nine # Mipam Chödrup Gyamtso (1742–1793) was the stepbrother of the 6th Panchen Lama, Lobsang Palden Yeshe (1738–1780). A dispute over his claim to his stepbrother's material inheritance led to an armed conflict in which the Sharmapa conspired with the Nepalese Gurkha army in 1788.

Stanford University Press. ISBN 0-8047-0806-1 (cloth); ISBN 0-8047-0901-7 (pbk) This, and other disputes between the Gelug and Kagyu schools led to the exile from Tibet of the Shamarpa and a legal ban by the Tibetan government on further Shamarpa incarnations This ban remained in place until after the Dalai Lama lost power in Tibet during the 1950s, although it was later revealed that the Karmapa had recognized reincarnations of the Shamarpa secretly during the intervening period.
