Most Venerable Bhumang Rinpoche Born in March 30th, 1983, Taipei City, Bhumang Rinpoche (Lobsang Jigme) is the first Tibetan Rinpoche incarnated in Taiwan. His parents were exiled-Tibetans who
immigrated and worked in Taiwan. The search for the fourth incarnation of Bhumang Rinpoche was guided and authenticated in 1984 by H. H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang.
The search was no easy task since there had never been any Tibetan rinpoche incarnated to Taiwan. For three years the searching team had tried several areas in Tibet, Nepal and India, but with no success. Until April 16th, 1987,H. H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang in San Francisco announced that the Bhumang Rinpoche's incarnation had successfully being located in Taoyuan County, Taiwan.
Drikung Kagyu Lamchen Gyalpo Rinpoche was immediately ordered to travel to Taiwan and met with the 4-year-old child Lobsang Jigme. Two years later, Lobsang Family immigrated to Kathmandu, Nepal. At age of 6, Bhumang Rinpoche started learning Tibetans, Nepali, English, and Buddhism texts.
In November 20th, 1992, Bhumang Rinpoche at age of 9 was officially recognized as a Ven. Rinpoche at Jangchubling, India, and received his Dharma name “Konchok Thinly Namgyal Tempei Nyima.” It was during these years that Bhumang Rinpoche received education and completed most Buddhism courses in India.
In February 2005, Bhumang Rinpoche established the Drikung Kagyu Bhumang Jampaling in Taipei, Taiwan, providing disciples a place to practice Buddhism teachings. In the following month, his first book “Bhumang Rinpoche– the First Rinpoche Incarnated to Taiwan” was published and released to the general public. This book documented Bhumang Rinpoche's previous incarnations, childhood, years
in school, emotional stories and finally Rinpoche's teachings.
The book received an overwhelming response and became number one top seller in national-chain Eslite Bookstores and second place in Kingstone Bookstores.
In 2006, Bhumang Rinpoche also devoted much effort to build another Drikung Kagyu Bhumang Jampaling in Chauntra, North India. This monastery aims at helping
sentient beings for learning Buddhism and conducting rituals.
Bhumang Rinpoche truly hopes that all sentient beings to walk on correct paths guided by religions, to purify one's own mind and soul, obtain inner peace, and contribute one's ability to make a better society.
