Rinpoche Yangsi with parents
From Tempa Lama 23 March 2017:
"Dear Dharma Brothers and Sisters,
As all of you know by now, on the 21st of March, 2017, at 9am Indian time His Holiness the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa introduced Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi in the Tergar Monastery, Bodhgaya. Rinpoche is a four years old boy but from time to time I see him as an old man. It is hard to believe he is that young.
I am very sorry at the moment I am very busy. I will later let you know details about the search and how we found Yangsi Rinpoche and provide you with photos and video clips for you to enjoy.
Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche instructed us to wait for His Holiness’ advice to Yangsi Rinpoche how to further proceed from here.
Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche could not come to this occasion of His Holiness’ introducing Tenga Rinoche’s Yangsi since he has a schedule in Bhutan that was arranged long time ago. As you all know Bhutan is a remote area and in order to join teachings and initiations elderly people have to be carried on peoples backs and face all kinds of hardships on the way that may take up to three or four days. Therefore Rinpoche has to maintain his schedule. Furthermore, the main ceremony, the enthronement of Yangsi Rinoche, will commence later at another time that is yet to be announced following His Holiness’ forthcoming advice."
The ceremony can be seen on video from Tsurphu Labrang Media (beginning about 51st minute):
