Was Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche the first lama in Malaysia and Singapore?
So far, the claim has been uncontested. In the early 1960’s, the Karmapa sent Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche to Ipoh as his personal representative. The photo here, I believe, is from that first visit. If some some of you know the story behind it or have other pictures from Rinpoche’s long stay at the Ipoh Cave, please post them here or send them to email@example.com. The visit to Malaysia happened like this, in Tulku Urgyen’s own words: http://blazing-splendor.blogspot.com/2005/08/our-mortality-true-foundation-of.html
