Sang Sang Rinpoche Sang Sang Rinpoche
In 1959, Sang Sang Rinpoche was born to Mr. Pasang and Mrs. Tsering Yudron. His birth was accompanied by extraordinary signs and from a very young age, he clearly remembered his previous life and recited texts in meditative posture, through having awakened good karmic imprints. Due to these extraordinary feats, his parents informed Dhephuk Rinpoche, who consulted H.H. the 16th Karmapa and Trushik Rinpoche. They all agreed to enthrone him at Senge Phuk in Solukhumbu in 1965 as the incarnation of Lama Tenzin Chodar. Lama Tenzin Chodar was a hidden yogi and a close disciple of the previous Trulshik Rinpoche, Kunzang Tokdol Dorje. He is also the father of the present Trulshik Rinpoche.
