Ribur Rinpoche 瑞布仁波切
Ribur Rinpoche (1923-16 January 2006) was born in the Kham region of Tibet, and was recognized by the Thirteenth Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of the head lama of Ribur Monastery. After studying at Sera Mé Monastery, where he received numerous teachings from his root guru, Pabongka Rinpoche, Rinpoche received his geshe degree in 1948. Rinpoche was then confined in Lhasa from 1959 until 1976, during which time he experienced relentless interrogation and torture during thirty-five of the infamous struggle sessions. "If I told you what happened on a regular basis, you would find it hard to believe."
At the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1976, Ribur Rinpoche spent more than 10 years in Chinese labor camps and was given a job with the Religious Affairs Office in Tibet. On one of his trips to China, he worked with the Panchen Lama and recovered holy objects—including the famous Shakyamuni Buddha statue in the Ramoche temple—that had been dismantled and shipped to China. He also re-established the destroyed stupa of Lama Tsongkhapa, which contained some of Lama Tsongkhapa's bodily relics.
西元1976年，於文化大革命結束時，瑞布仁波切已待在中國勞改營十年以上，被安排在西藏宗教事務辦公室（Religious Affairs Office）工作。在一次前往中國的旅途中，他與班禪喇嘛一起共事以修復聖物，包括修復那尊供奉在小昭寺（Ramoche Temple）的著名釋迦牟尼佛像，這尊佛像曾於被拆解後運送至中國。仁波切也重建已被摧毀的宗喀巴大師舍利塔，這座塔曾納含宗喀巴大師的身舍利。
Since his exile to India in 1985, Ribur Rinpoche wrote numerous biographies of great lamas such as the Thirteenth Dalai Lama and an extensive history of Tibet, which includes his autobiography. Ribur Rinpoche spent many years living in northern California where he gave teachings and led retreats, before returning to India, where he passed away.
