Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, aka Ugyen Tenzin Jigme Lhundrup (Tib. ཨོ་རྒྱན་བསྟན་འཛིན་འཇིགས་མེད་ལྷུན་གྲུབ་, Wyl. o rgyan bstan 'dzin 'jigs med lhun grub) (b.1993) — the reincarnation of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, born in Nepal on the 30th of June 1993,[1] as the son of Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche. Trulshik Rinpoche had numerous dreams and visions that clearly indicated the identity of the incarnation. Later, His Holiness the Dalai Lama confirmed that this child is the tulku of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. In December 1996,[2] at Maratika cave, Trulshik Rinpoche performed the ceremony of offering a name and robes to the young tulku. His actual enthronement took place at Shechen Tennyi Dargyeling Monastery in Nepal, in December 1997. Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche is being educated in the quiet of Bhutan under the guidance of Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche and is currently following a complete nine-year shedra course.
