Seventeen year old Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche is the incarnation of Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of the great Buddhist masters of the 20th century. The Yangsi was born in Nepal on June 30, 1993, discovered by Trulshik Rinpoche through dreams and visions in 1995, and enthroned at Shechen Monastery in Nepal in December 1996, an event that was attended by thousands of students from all over the world.
Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche is currently conducting a world tour that began at Shechen Monastary in Nepal in February. It has included visits to numerous Dharma centers in Europe and North America, and continues through October with stops in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Malaysia. The tour marks the 100-year celebration of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s birth in 1910, and provides an opportunity for the many students of dharma, who have been deeply inspired by his predecessor, to renew our connection to this essential branch of our family tree.
