Khandro Tashi Chotso was enthroned as a reincarnation (Tib: tulku) of Khandro Kunzang Chodron at Ewam Buddhist monastery in Silguri, in the Indian state of West Bengal, on Sunday 19th Jan. 2020. The ceremony was led on an auspicious dakini day* by the esteemed Nyingma lama His Holiness Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche. 

Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche is visiting Ewam Monastery from 10–24 January to bestow the rarely offered reading transmission (Tib: lung) and all empowerments (Tib: wang) of the "Seven Modes of Transmission."**—the collected works of one of the most eminent Buddhist teachers of the 19th century, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo Rinpoche (1820–92).

Rinpoche’s teaching program, titled “Journey to the Extraordinary,” was organized at the request of Tulku Namchak Sang-ngag Rinpoche, who established Ewam Monastery in Silguri as a branch of his Buddhist organization Ewam International.

The enthronement of Khandro Tashi Chotso was requested by Sokpo Lama from Domang Monastery—a branch of Palyul Monastery in Drago Dzong in the Dokham Trehor region of eastern Tibet. The ceremony was held along with a White Vajravarahi (Tib: Dorje Phagmo) empowerment and a ritual for longevity. A long-life offering was given on behalf of representatives of the state government of Sikkim in northeastern India, chief minister Prem Singh Tamang and state minister Sonam Lama.

Khandro Tashi Chotso was born in Yuksom, western Sikkim. Her great-uncle was His Eminence Domang Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche (1929—2016), a highly revered Nyingma lama who was born in Sikkim, studied at Domang Monastery in Tibet, and, after 22 years in prison during the Chinese invasion, returned to Sikkim.

Several years ago, Khandro Tashi Chotso was recognized as the reincarnation of Khandro Kunzang Chodron (regarded as an emanation of Vajravarahi) by Lama Akhyuk Rinpoche (1927–2011), one of Tibet’s most renowned meditation masters of recent times, who founded Yarchen Gar Monastery.

It was Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche’s wish that his grand-niece be enthroned as a recognized incarnation and serve the Dharma. Before passing into parinirvana, he wrote a letter to her, which was found among his personal belongings, and later translated by the American translator Sangye Khandro.

Dakini (Tib: khandro), a female emanation of the enlightened nature. The 25th day of each month in the Tibetan lunar calendar is considered a dakini day and therefore especially appropriate for Dharmic activities.

** Known also as the seven authoritative transmissions (Tib: ka bab dun): the continuous transmission of sutra and tantra, earth treasures, rediscovered treasures, mind treasures, oral transmission, visionary revelations or 'pure visions,' and revelations from memory.
