Significance of a Monk’s Robes

Disrobing or having robes has nothing to do with a person’s status, who he is or his attainments.

We take vows, we do not “take” our attainments.

So if a monk removes his vows, it just means his work will manifest in another way.

For example, Chogyam #Trungpa Rinpoche gave up his robes back in #England. It did not affect his work at all in America and it continues to grow very big.

His Eminence #Gehlek Rinpoche gave his vows back many years ago and took a consort. It did not affect his teachings or his abilities at all; nor does it affect his relationship with his Guru at all.
