Pawo Rinpoche (dpa' bo), an important lineage of Karma Kagyu masters very closely associated with the Karmapas. The seat of the early Pawo incarnations was a monastery called Lhalung (lha lung) and at Sekhar Gutog (sras mkhar dgu thog). Now it is the monastery of Nenang (gnas nang) located in the same Tolung (stod lung) valley as the Karmapa's Tsurphu (mtshur phu) monastery. The 10th Pawo Rinpoche passed away in Kathmandu/Nepal in 1991. The present 11th incarnation was found and recognized in Tibet by the present 17th Karmapa.
