10 pages of the Buddha texts in one day. From then on, he acquired the
sixth sense of knowing his past and also events of the future. In 1960,

in jail even though he was not guilty of any wrong doings. For 22 years
he had to use his mind to practise because it was an offence
to recite or perform any religious ceremony at that time.

On the day of his birth, a white rainbow appeared across the sky during
the night hours and was witnessed by members of the community. During the
growing up years, Rinpoche behaved differently from other children of his
age. Most of the time, he will dressed himself up in garments of
red and yellow and will act like a monk conducting a religious ceremony.
It was at this period, His Eminence the 8thDrukpa
Cheogen Rinpoche recognised the child to be the reincarnation of a previous
Lama. This was authenticated by His Holiness the 16th
Gyalwa Karmapa who named him Karma Tendzin Thrinley Kunkhyab. At the age
of 7, Rinpoche was ceremonially enthroned as the 8th
Jamme Choesin Tulku witnessed by High Lamas and Tulkus.
