Reincarnation of H.E. Dilgokhyentse Found

The following article is from the Winter, 1996 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

On Thanksgiving day Trulshig Rinpoche, the closest lama to the previous Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, announced that he had recognized the youngest son of Chokling Rinpoche to be the reincarnation of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

Chokling Rinpoche's eldest son is Pamchok Rinpoche of the Talkang Kagyu lineage. Chokling Rinpoche's eldest brother is Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche (author of The Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen and many other titles). The entire family was extremely close to the previous Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

Shortly after Chokling Rinpoche's wife gave birth to a son on Guru Rinpoche day, the rumors began to fly that the boy was Dilgo Khyentse, because the timing was perfect, but there had not been any official recognition prior to the Thanksgiving announcement. ä_æ
