Palpung Khyentse Rinpoche
Once, Jamyang Kyentse Wangpo (1820-1892) had a talk with the 10th Palpung Tai Situ. He said, "I fail to do any help for your dharma teachings this life, but, certainly I would like to make a wish to contribute my next life generously to your dharma activities."
Palpung Khyentse (1896-1945),or Karma Khyentse Ozer, considered to be the main speech incarnation of the great Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, was born as the son of Gonpo Dudul, the ruler of Beri in Trehor, a close disciple of Jamgon Kongtrul. Because of his origin he also became popularly known as Beri or Beru (be rus) Khyentse.
A few years after his birth, the Palpung abbot came to see the child with another Lama, they offered many precious gems and a ‘khatak’ (white scarf signifying auspiciousness) to him. They then escorted the child to Palpung Monastery where Situ Pema Wangchok and the abbot Khenchen Tashi Ozer performed an enthronement ceremony for him. .
