Following the passing of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche in July 2012, the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, this spring issued a letter received by Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche that indicated that Traleg Rinpoche’s successor had been born and would be found in Zama Village in Batong, Tibet.
That successor, Traleg Yangse Rinpoche, has now been officially recognized by Thrangu Monastery Tibet, under the guidance of the Karmapa and Thrangu Rinpoche.
According to a statement released today via E-Vam Institute, “On 13 July 2015, Lodro Nyima Rinpoche and Drupon Rinchen Tseling-la led the chief committee members of Thrangu Monastery Tibet to Zama Village in Batong where they found Traleg Yangse Rinpoche’s family waiting outside their home.”
Until the young Rinpoche’s enthronement takes place, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, head of Thrangu Monastery, recommends students continue to recite swift return prayers for Traleg Rinpoche.
