Interesting Ashocka but the Karmapa recognizing a Nyingma Master and turning him into a Karma Kagyu Tulku.
Who could they go to in the Nyingma with the courage to take back their Tulku.
I've heard that a small Canadian - Tibetan boy is a strong candidate for the reincarnation of Namgyal Rinpoche.
The story goes that they took this to H.H. Phakchok Rinpoche because of a close relationship between the Riwoche Temple in Toronto and Namgyal Rinpoche.
The Riwoche Temple is both Taklung Kagyu and Nyingma.
Phackchok Rinpoche thru his father Chokling Rinpoche told them they could not take their candidate to the Taklung Kagyu nor the Nyingma that he MUST be taken only to the Karmapa.
Only problem was which Karmapa since Namgyal Rinpoche had personally visited BOTH of the 17th Karmapa's and indicated that he had no preference.
What to do, What to do.
