Hailing from Babesa, Thimphu, Bhutan, Trulku Jigme Choeying Norbu, son of Mr. Tenzin Namgay and Mrs. Kunga Choden alias Karma, born in the Wood Rooster Year is recognized as the Trulku of Late Kuzhab Tsechu Rinpoche alias Kuzhab Damchoe Gyeltshen.

Based on the three letters submitted by Dasho Sangay Wangchuk, the nephew of the late Rinpoche; the Druk Menjong Trulku Ngoezin Tshogpa or the Committee for Recognition of Reincarnate Lamas, after carrying out scrutiny based on traditional norms and procedures, is pleased to confirm the six-year old trulku Jigme Choeying Norbu as the reincarnation of Kusho Tshechu.

May we therefore pray for the good health and longevity of the Trulku. May he master the three disciplines of listening, understanding and meditation and serve the cause of the Buddha Dharma and the liberation of all sentient beings. We pray and hope that he would continue to follow the path of his predecessor.

May we reaffirm, once again, that he is the true reincarnation of Kuzhab Tsechu Rinpoche and request all his followers to honor this recognition.

Issued on the 10th day of the Fifth Month of wood rabbit year, (10th July, 2010) coinciding with birth anniversary of Guru Rinpoche.
