He was born on the tenth day of the eighth month to a poor family in Bhutan. Karmapa named him Gyurme Dorje. At the age of seven, he was taken to his monastery in Bir, and en­throned by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in Clement Town at the monastery Ngedön Gatsal Ling. Before arriving in his home monastery he was enthroned in Rumtek by H.H. Karmapa.
