Drukpa Kunley reincarnation?

Postby Destiny » Fri Jan 03, 2014 2:25 pm

Does someone know if there are recognized tulku of Drukpa Kunley?
I've heard that a couple of them have been recognized in Bhutan, but they did not live long life. Is this lineage continuing or not?
Thanks

If it i, then it would be recommended to wear a firmly locked chastity when in their presence! :smile:

If they are found keep them away from your daughter and your whiskey stash!

When you go to Chimed Lhakhang in Wangdi Phodrang, the main Drukpa Kinley temple in Bhutan, besides being blessed with Drukpa Kinley's bow and arrow, they bop you on the head with a huge wooden phallus. Women come from all around to pray for a child. After the child is born, they bring the boy or girl back with various offerings in thanksgiving. There's a steady stream of such parents and their babies in arms, with Kinley (Kunlek) being one of the most popular male names in Bhutan. When traveling throughout Bhutan, it's not at all uncommon for your guide or some local to say, "This is where Drukpa Kinley threw a fire-brand at a bunch of demons," "This is the house one of Drukpa Kinley's consorts lived in," "This is where (fill in the blank)."
