法王新闻 | 2002年07月
藏曆6月的第15天，尊貴的達賴喇嘛由國師嘉察仁波切協助為法王舉行沙彌戒儀式(Ordination as a novice monk－dge tshul pha)。在上密院，大家為此令人欣喜的儀式慶祝了三天。法王能從尊貴的達賴喇嘛親授沙彌戒(Getsul vows)，被認為是特別殊勝。法王受戒後，尊貴的達賴喇嘛為八百多位來自印度南部的僧眾授沙彌戒及比丘戒。
On July 24, the 15th day of the 6th Tibetan month, His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa received his ordination as a novice monk (dge tshul pha) from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who was assisted at the ceremony by His Eminence Gyaltsab Rinpoche. This joyous occasion was marked by three days of celebration at Gyuto Monastery. It is considered particularly auspicious that His Holiness was able to receive his Getsul vows from the Dalai Lama. After the Karmapa received his vows, His Holiness the Dalai Lama conferred novice and final ordination on some 800 monks from southern India.
