Rebirth of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
The long awaited announcement has finally come.
Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche has taken rebirth in the family of Neten Chokling Rinpoche and his beautiful wife, Tendzin Choyang Gyari.
Urgyen Jigmey Rabsel was born in the year of the snake & is 4 1/2 years old (6 Tibetan). He was born in the USA & has an American passport.
Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche undeniably recognized him as the reincarnation of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche after carefully investigating his experience while in strict retreat in the holy pilgrimage place in Maritika, Nepal.
The child is currently in Bir India with his parents & will be given a new name at the time of the hair cutting ceremony.
As an auspicious coincidence, Tulkus Chokyi Nyima, Tsikey Chokling, Tsoknyi & Phakchok Rinpoches as well as Tenpa Chophel will travel to Bir on March 3rd to meet the child and his parents. There will be a ceremony at the Neten Chokling Gonpa in Bir and with the sons of the former Neten Chokling Rinpoche, Urgyen Topgyal, Khyentse Yeshe, Jamyang & Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoches.
This is a very happy time for all of the students of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. Please join together to pray for the further unfolding of auspicious circumstances in regards to this joyous event.
