Our Lama given ‘High Honor’ in Tibetan Buddhism

January 15, 2010

To all students, friends and well wishers of The Venerable Tulku Karma
Gyurme Sonam Rinpoche,

With blessings from H.H. the 17th Karmapa Orgyen Thriney, on this day
of the January 15th coinciding with the longest annular Solar Eclipse
of the millennium, our precious teacher will officially change his
name to Tulku Tsori Rinpoche. Assuming the name of a previous
incarnation is considered highly auspicious and establishes
continuity of the work of a “Tulku”
– one who returns countless
lifetimes to offer the Buddha’s teachings.

During his childhood, Rinpoche was recognized as the incarnation of
Yogi Tsori Dechen Rinpoche of Chamdho, Tibet. Today, he is recognized
as a Lama – a term reserved for senior members of the Tibetan Order.
Rinpoche has devoted his life to champion humanitarian efforts and
presently manages several charitable programs which benefit Tibetan
refugee people living in India and Nepal.

Please join us in reciting a prayer for the long life of Tulku Tsori
Rinpoche (aka Karma Sonam Wosel Gyurme) to show our deepest gratitude
for his teachings, and so that his work may continue to be benefit to
all sentient beings.
