Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche Yangsi visited Namdroling Monastery in late April to pay respect to the late Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche. Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche Yangsi was the reincarnation of the great Dzogchen Master Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche who passed away on 27th August 1999 at Antamnies, Dordogne, France. On hearing the news of Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche’s passing, the late Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche who was on a teaching tour in the UK at the time, cancelled his planned schedule and travelled to France to perform puja for Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche.

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche Yangsi who is now six years old was formally recognised and enthroned in Bodhgaya during the Nyingma Monlam Chenmo in 2008 in the presence of the late Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche.

On this trip to the Namdroling Monastery, Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche Yangsi was accompanied by Khandro Damcho Zangmo, the spiritual wife of the previous Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. Khandro Damcho Zangmo was renowned for her devotion to her late husband by performing thousands of prostration daily which she dedicated towards the swift rebirth of Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche.
