Jigme Choewang Lodro- the 10th reincarnation of Choeze Kuchen Rinpoche

Jigme Choewang Lodro was born in Kham Dzachukha to father Jampa Zangpo and mother Dolo from Kham. He was recognized as the 10th reincarnation of Choeze Kuchen Rinpoche by the previous H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Zhiwi Lodro Rinpoche.



He received many teachings from both Drikung Holinesses and one of his main Guru was Dzogchen master of his time, Dzogchen Khenpo Thubga from Changma Rithro at Dzachukha. In the Kham region, he had many followers from different regions and monasteries of Tibet practicing different sects of Buddhism. He is recognized for his profound teachings covering all sects of Buddhism.


These are golden statues of Yamantaka (central statue) and other deities belonging to the 10th incarnation of Choeze Kuchen Rinpoche. Yamantaka is an emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom.

During the later part of his life, he travelled to Drikung Terdrum region and spent the rest of his life in the caves of Guru Padmasambhava and Yeshey Tsogyal. There he recognized his consort, special dakini, Khandro Thinley Wangmo. In Drikung Terdrum, he gave teachings to many high reincarnated lamas, monks, nuns, lay practitioners. One such student was the late Drubwang Geylong Tenzin Nyima who was also the heart son of Drubwang Palchung Rinpoche. Before passing into the Parinirvana, he showed Khandro Thinley Wangmo of his passing and signs that they will meet again in his next reincarnation.
