At Ewam Monastery in India a reincarnate Dakini has been enthroned! On January 19th the auspicious Dakini Day, late Kyabje Yangthang Rinpoche’s niece Tashi Tsho was enthroned by Kyabje Rabjam Rinpoche. She was recognized as the reincarnation of Khandro Kunzang Chodon by Khen Rinpoche Achuk of Yachen monastery Tibet.
Ewams Jetsunma Jamyang Drolma has been recognized as the reincarnation of Freda Bedi, Sister Palmo as she was known upon being ordained, the first women to receive full bhikshuni ordination in over 1000 years back in the early 1970s on the insistent urging of HH the 16th Karmapa. This is a rare occurrence of a recognized female tulku (reincarnation of an accomplished being) and the first we know of of a Tibetan being recognized as rebirth of a Westerner, and a woman at that!
Jetsunma finished 9 years of complete Shedra training at Namdrolling in South India and completed more then 9 years of retreat at Tulku Sang-Ngak Rinpoche’s retreat center in Pharping. She has since been the Vajra Master for the retreatants at this retreat center.
She commented that her enthronement creates the positive conditions for the genuine Dharma she has to share to be heard.
She is currently a student at Harvard University. During summer breaks Jetsunma is one of Ewams western shedra teachers, she grants instructions for advanced practices at Ewam’s summer Drubchod and Shedra in Montana with Tulku Sang-Ngak Rinpoche and Namchak Khen Rinpoche.
Jetsunma taught at Ewam Kusum Ling in 2019 and it’s our sincere wish she will return many times to share her genuine experience and wisdom. 🙏🏻🌈🙏🏻

Tulku Sang Ngag Rinpoche invited Rabjam Rinpoche to bestow rare precious empowerment’s in Ewam, Nubchen Monastery India. Rabjam Rinpoche has been bestowing empowerment’s from Jamyang Khyentse Wangpos Terma whom he received from HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. HH Dilgo Khyentse only bestowed these empowerment’s once they are considered extremely precious. Thousands of monks, nuns, and lay practitioners traveled from all over the Himalayas. Dharma practitioners arrived from #sikkim #nepal #dharmsala #bhutan #india , Europe, China, and the United States. What an amazing blessing for all those fortunate enough to attend.

Throughout his life, the great master Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo Kunga Tenpé Gyaltsen Pal Zangpo had many visions of White Tara, during which the wisdom deity actually dissolved into this image. From time to time, she would deliver prophecies, grant teachings and advice, and bestow empowerments by sending out miraculous rays of light, as well as inspiring countless pure visions.
Khyentse Wangpo’s main students and heart-sons too, such as Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thayé, Terchen Chokgyur Lingpa and Tertön Sogyal, received blessings from this image directly and in pure visions. This is clearly described in their own biographies and is also well known from oral accounts.
There is also mention in the secret biography of the second Jamyang Khyentse, Chökyi Lodrö, of how this image of White Tara granted empowerments, delivered prophecies and bestowed the blessings of longevity, and how other devoted students were able to receive advice from it directly. It is also said that the crackling noise of a butter lamp placed before this very image brought about the revelation of a terma. Therefore it is this very image, which is so sacred and powerful, that has inspired countless pure visions over the years, and which features in so many well-known stories.
In 1967, as the monastery was on the brink of destruction at the hands of communist Chinese hostile to the teachings, a devoted and quick-witted disciple took the image from the wall, concealing it carefully in a cloth, and placed it in a secure location. Later, when the current incarnation of the wish-fulfilling jewel, Dzongsar Khyentse Thubten Chökyi Gyatso, travelled to the reconstructed Dzongsar monastery, the image was taken out and offered to him, and then, after this auspicious event, it was brought to India.
