Reincarnation of Rinpoche : Following tradition, the Nyingma sect has considered a four-and-a-half-year-old boy from Lahaul-Spiti in Himachal Pradesh to be the reincarnation of the late Tibetan Lama Taklung Setrung Rinpoche. Nawang Tashi Rapten is a resident of Rangrik village in Tabo area of ​​Spiti Valley in Lahaul-Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. The parents and relatives of the child are very happy about the birth of such a child in their house, who is formally the greatest teacher of Tibetan Buddhists. The religious life of this boy started from Monday. His religious education will start at Dorjidak Math located in Panthaghati, Shimla. Nawang Tashi's grandfather said, 'At first I had no idea that my grandson was the reincarnation of the Tibetan Lama. When the Guru came to our house, he told that the next Lama is with you.

At the same time, a Buddhist monk who came to the ceremony said, today is his mundan and change of clothes ceremony. When he takes blessings from all the lamas, then his education will start. This is an important moment for people associated with the Buddhist world because we have waited 7 years for this. Tibetan Buddhist monks and others in Dorjidak and other Buddhist disciples from the Himalayan region of Himachal Pradesh welcomed Nawang Tashi in Shimla.

mother said this

"We didn't know anything about this, nor were we prepared for anything like this," said Keslang Dolma, the mother of the boy monk. About a year ago people from Dorjidak Monastery came to us. They were the Dalai Lama and later Sakya Trichen. Went to Rinpoche and later after discussion with him and rituals of reincarnation accepted Nawang Tashi as an incarnation.

 She said, as a mother, it was very painful to think of being separated from her son. But it was also a matter of happiness for me that the greatest Buddhist master has taken birth in our house. I have two children. He is younger and has an elder daughter. I am happy that he will educate people and work for their betterment. I feel lucky that I gave birth to this child.

Father said - this moment of happiness

Nawang Tashi's father Lama Sonam Chopel said, “It is a very happy moment as I am the father of an incarnation of Tibetan Lama Taklung Setrung Rinpoche. I never thought like this. In future he will be a Buddhist teacher and will give teachings to the people. We will also become his disciples. He was in school before, but we had to stop his schooling after his incarnation and recognition from Shakya Trichen Rinpoche.
