After the establishment of the Ming Dynasty in 1368, the central government carried out the administrative policy of "multiple conferment and joint construction" according to the situation of Tibetan region, and conferred three High Clerists (Fig. 5) and five Kings successively and conferred seals, Imperial Edict and a large number of rewards to various leaders of monks and laymen (refer to Illustrations 84), in which, conferment to Deshin Shekpa, Karmapa from the Karma Kagyu Sect was the very start of High Clerists conferment. Since the regulation for reincarnation of Living Buddhas was established, it developed multiple reincarnation systems, such as Shamarpa, Rgyel Lshab, Dpav Bo, Tai Situ etc., within the Karma Kagyu Sect, after then it was adopted by other subordinated denominations of the Kagyu Sect such as Taklung Kagyu, Drikung Kagyu, Zhuba Kagyu, Shangpa Kagyu. Starting from the 15th century, it was adopted by various major denominations such as Gelugpa, Nyingma, Sakya, Jonang etc., and became one of the main ways of Tibetan Buddhism religious succession. Religious rituals of reincarnation were gradually enriched as well.
