On 5 March 2015 the Very Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche received a letter composed by His Holiness 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje indicating that the 10th Traleg Rinpoche had been born in the Batong area in 2013 (the year of the Snake).
Thrangu Monastery, Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, Maitripa Centre, E-Vam Institute Melbourne, E-Vam Institute USA, Nyima Tashi Kagyu Buddhist Centre and Nyima Centre Sydney commenced prayers that Traleg Rinpoche be located swiftly.
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.
Mandala offerings were made to Traleg Yangse Rinpoche and katas were offered to Rinpoche’s father, Tashi, his mother, Pema, and to Rinpoche’s grandmother.
Lodro Nyima Rinpoche then read His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa’s recognition letter to the many disciples who had gathered for the special occasion.
Today Traleg Yangsi Rinpoche was officially recognized by Thrangu Monastery Tibet.
Very Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche recommends students continue to recite swift return prayers for Traleg Rinpoche until his enthronement, so please pray for Traleg Yangse Rinpoche!
