His Holiness Trulshig Rinpoche
H.H. Trulshig Rinpoche
His Holiness Trulshig Rinpoche was born in Tibet, in Lo Talung, a place sacred to the Goddess Tara. When he was 4 years old, he was recognized by the abbot Ngawang Tenzing as the reincarnation of his own heart lama, Trulshig Tendru Dorje.

Thirty of Trulshig Rinpoche's previous incarnations were in India. One of his incarnations was Ananda. Ananda was Buddha's disciple who persuaded him to allow women to be ordained and join the Sangha. This was a very radical step.


Sang Sang Rinpoche
ImageIn 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.
