Rimé

Rimé (ris.med, ‘without partiality’). 19th-cent. Tibetan eclectic movement, initiated in 1864 by the publication of the first of Jamgon Kongtrul's ‘five treasuries’, the Treasury of All Knowledge (Shes.bya.mdzod). In its attempt at a reconciling inclusiveness, what had been a heresy—the zhen dong doctrine—became the bedrock of a major national movement, which sought to harmonize all teachings in the light of an ontologically positive ultimate reality which is essentially beyond definition. Rimé was at its strongest in its own province of Khams and its effects were felt strongly everywhere but, perhaps because of the importance attached by all schools to their respective lineages, it never looked like dissolving the distinctions fully. The Geluk indeed stayed well apart from it as a school, unflinching in their condemnation of the zhen dong heresy.
