H.H. Taklung Matul Rinpoche Tenzin Kunzang Jigme
Tenzin Kunzang Jigme Rinpoche, the seventh H.H. Taklung Matrul Rinpoche was born in 1977 to Ngawang Tendar and Deden Zangmo. In 1987, His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama formally recognized him as the reincarnation of the sixth H.H.Taklung Matul Thupten Jigme Choechog Rinpoche. He spent a few years in Namgyal Monastery studying Buddhist philosophy and practice. In 1991, he entered the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics, Dharamsala to learn both the Sutra and Tantra teachings of the Lord Buddha and completed his studies in 2003. Having finished his Buddhist studies, he is now living in Manali, Kulu, in Himachal Pradesh. Since there is no monastic seat of the Taklung Kagyu tradition in India, the Taklung Kagyu Rinpoches are jointly working for its establishment.

About near future plans of our Rinpoche, there is a small Gonpa already in Gangtok, but there are no dwelling rooms for the monks. And his Holiness plan is to construct more room over there for monk's, and to keep some fifteen or sixteen monks over there. And there is a land nearly 4 acre near Rawang La. Next plan is to construct the main monastery over there near the Rawang la. The documents are almost complete.
