More about H.E. Ling Rinpoche

The Yongzin Ling Rinpoche lineage incarnations are innumerable prior to the 1st Ling Rinpoche (1655 – 1702). Since the time as an arhat during the time of Shakyamuni Buddha, twenty-two notable manifestations have been identified, including kings, scholars, yogis and tertons (spiritual treasure revealers). 

  • His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was born in India on November 18, 1985. His Holiness the Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of his Principal Teacher, His Holiness the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, who passed away in 1983. 
  • 1990: Ling Rinpoche entered Drepung Monastic University in South India, when he was five years old.
