Renowned as a great yogi, scholar, and teacher of our fortunate times, His
Eminence Choden Rinpoche was born on a very auspicious day, the 15 of the Fourth
Month of the lunar calendar in 1931. This day also marked the full moon day of
Saka Dawa that commemorates Buddha Shakyamuni's birth and enlightenment.
Choden Rinpoche is the reincarnation of the previous great mahasiddha Lama
Choden of Rongpo Rabten Monastery in the region of Kham who was then instructed
by the Eleventh Dalai Lama to establish the 1000 Offering Puja of Buddha
Namgyalma (a long life deity) and a debate system for learning the Buddhist
philosophy at his Monastery. Having completed only the first instruction, the
mahasiddha passed into the sphere of Dharma. Coincidentally, when the late
Mahasiddha's brother Gongpo Nyisher took on and established the debate system at
the Monastery, on the very same auspicious day, Choden Rinpoche was incarnated.
Born as one of eight boys and five girls in a noble family from Dahi, the Khampa
region of Eastern Tibet, Rinpoche's connections to past spiritual masters were
evident from early childhood in his exemplary conduct and superior intelligence
as well as in the miraculous signs often witnessed in his presence. Reting
Rinpoche, the Regent of Tibet, officially recognized the small boy as the living
reincarnation of the previous mahasiddha Lama Choden, who had been one of the
finalists in the search for the Thirteen Dalai Lama's reincarnation.
