A statue of Jokpo Ngawang Tendzin (b. 1748) in Zhungpa Regional House (Zhungpa Khangtsen), Mé College (Dratsang Mé), Sera, Tibet. This statue is said to contain the remains of the lama within it.

This hermitage (ritrö), located at the far western end of the NyangdrenValley, is today mostly in ruins. It takes over two hours to walk to Jokpo from Sera. The hermitage is situated above pastures used for grazing. One or two huts have been rebuilt at the site to serve as the residences for the Sera monks who tend the Sera herds. It appears that before 1959 the hermitage was the property of the Jokpo Lama’s estate (Jokpo Labrang). Today it is the property of Sera.

The hermitage originally served as the meditation retreat of a monk of the Sera Mé College (Sera Mé) Zhungpa Regional House (Zhungpa Khangtsen), Jokpo Ngawang Tendzin.1 This monk was renowned as a great meditator. Oral tradition has it that after he passed away his body remained in a state of perpetual meditative equipoise. It was kept in a rear chapel inside the Zhungpa Regional House temple. Monks say that his hair and nails continued to grow even after his death, and that these had to be trimmed by attendants. After 1959, the body was buried in order to protect it from destruction. This, however, caused it to start decaying. After the regional house (khangtsen) was rebuilt in the 1980s, Jokpo Rinpoché’s remains were exhumed and his bones were placed inside the clay statue that today resides on the main altar of the regional house temple.

The UCSB team was not able to make it to the Jokpo Hermitage site in 2004. At this point in time we know little about the hermitage other than what is written here. A portion of the Jokpo Lama’s residence (Jokpo Labrang) still exists in Sera, Tibet today.
