Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche was born in Nepal on June 30,1993. When Khyentse Rinpoche passed away, his close students requested Trulshik Rinpoche, his most senior and accomplished disciple, to find his incarnation.
He had numerous dreams and visions that clearly indicated the identity of the incarnation as the son of Tsikey Chogling Rinpoche Mingyur Dewai Dorje, the third embodiment of Chogyur Dechen Lingpa, (himself the son of Tulku Ugyen Rinpoche), and Dechen Paldron. His Holiness the Dalai Lama confirmed that this child was the tulku or reincarnation of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
In December 1995, Trulshik Rinpoche performed the ceremony of offering a name (Ugyen Tenzin Jigme Lhundrup), and robes to the young tulku. His actual enthronement took place at Shechen Tennyi Dargyeling Monastery in Nepal in December 1996 and was attended by thousands of students from all over the world.
Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche is being educated in the quiet of Bhutan under the guidance of Rabjam Rinpoche. He studies a complete Shedra (nine-year philosophical college course) in Bhutan with a small group of tulkus tutored by Khenpo Yeshe Gyaltsen. English and meditation are included in the curriculum. Yangsi Rinpoche is a diligent student. He is compassionate, direct, and understanding.
