LETTER FROM HIS HOLINESS THE 70TH JE KHENPO FOR THE RECOGNITION OF THE TRULKU OF LOPON TSECHU RINPOCHE.
As requested by all the monks of Sangay Choeling Monastery in Nepal for the identification of the Trulku of late Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche, it is hereby confirmed that Trulku Jigme Choeying Norbu, son of Mr. Tenzin Namgyel and Mrs.Kunga Choden, hailing from Babesa, Thimphu, Bhutan, who was born in the Lunar Wood Rooster Year is recognized as the true reincarnation of the late Rinpoche.
In the scrutiny carried out by the Druk Menjong Trulku Ngoezin Tshogpa, the Committee for Recognition of Reincarnate Lamas, the child not only recalled events from his past life but has also identified some of the personal possessions of the late Rinpoche. I myself sought for signs of his sacred birth by praying to the Triple Gem, and on all accounts the child has proven to be the true reincarnation of Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche.
The child is hereby given the spiritual name of Jigmed Choeying Norbu and all those associated with the rinpoche are requested to honor this recognition.
Issued from the Trashichhodzong on the 10th day of the Fifth Month of wood rabbit year (10th July, 2010)
