Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche

Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche was born in India in 1970, the tenth day of the sixth month of the year of the Earth Monkey, on the anniversary of Guru Rinpoche’s birth. He is the son and spiritual heir of His Eminence Terton Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche, holder and supreme head of the Ripa lineage. His mother Khandro Chime Dolkar, also descends from a noble family of Bhutanese descent. Kyabje Chatrel Rinpoche has said to Jigme Rinpoche that he is the “son of a father who resembles a tiger and of a mother who resembles a leopard.” Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche is the 6th throne-holder of the Ripa lineage or hereditary line, into which he was born, and which he will hold in future as heir. He is also serving as the 5th incarnation of the Terton Pema Lingpa, head of the Pema Lingpa lineage of Gyeyling Orgyan Mindrolling monastery in the hidden land of Pemako, which he carries forward from his previous life, as Tulku (emanation body).He was recognized at the age of three by His Holiness Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, the supreme head of the Nyingma lineage, as the reincarnation of Gyeyling Yonten Lhundrub Gyatso Rinpoche, a manifestation of the Bhutanese Terton Pema Lingpa, one of the five principle or emperor Tertons of Vajrayana Buddhism. He was enthroned at the age of five, at Rigon Thubten Mindrolling monastery in Orissa, India. Upon enthronement, H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, gave him the name Gyetrul Jigme Lodoe Thaye Norbu Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s other previous lives include: Manjushrimitra (Jampel Shenyen), one of the great eight Vidyadharas from India, and master of the Dzogchen lineage. During the time of Guru Rinpoche in Tibet, he was the daughter of the King Trisong Deutsen, the Princess Pema Sal.
