Before passing away, Peling Rinpoche wrote a letter to the Heart Sons of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, which included the following: “My heart son and Dharma heir, Lama Jigme Pawo Bar Wang Trak Thun Dorje Chokyi Lodro, has been my close student and attendant for thirty-two years. Since first meeting him I have believed him to be an incarnation of Jigme Lingpa and Pema Lingpa’s son, Dawa Gyaltsen and an emanation of Vajrapani. It is my sincere wish that he be recognized and enthroned as such.” On August 20th, 2010, Their Eminences Khentrul Gyangkang and Mugsang Kuchen Rinpoches fulfilled the first part of Peling Rinpoche’s wish by enthroning Lama Jigme as his regent.
