Murdered Lama Reincarnated, Enthroned

Tulku Tsenyi Khentrul Tenzin Tseten Rinpoche, a nine-year-old boy, was enthroned earlier this month as the reincarnation of Geshe Lobsang Gyatso, the founder of the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics (IBD).

Tenzin Tseten, was recognised by the Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of Lobsang Gyatso in 2006. He was born in Leh, in Jammu and Kashmir, on May 14, 2001. Lobsang Gyatso, 70, was murdered along with his two disciples in February 1997. He was a close confidante of the Dalai Lama.

“We came to know about five years ago that a boy in a remote village in Leh knows about his past life. Our interaction with the boy affirms our belief that the slain monk has been reborn,” one the Dalai Lama's spokesmen said.

A large number of officials of the Tibetan government-in-exile and representatives of various monasteries attended the coronation ceremony at Tsuglagkhang, the main temple at McLeodgang.

He was the fellow supsected to have been killed by dorje shugden supporters. The murderers were never found.
I'm glad he is back... maybe his new body can shed some light on the facts...
