4-Year-Old Shimla Boy Identified As Rinpoche's Reincarnation, Set To Be Next Buddhist Master
It has been identified that a 4-year-old kid is Taklung Tsetul Rinpoche, the leader of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, and there are huge celebrations taking place in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, as a result. Monday, during a ceremony at a monastery in Shimla, Nawang Tashi Rapten took on the robes of a monk.
The procedures were carried out by Namkhai Nyingpo Rinpoche of the Bhutanese Lhodrak Kharchu Monastery, and the 4-year-old Rapten had his head tonsured as part of the process that officially made him a monk.
Rapten, who was born on April 16, 2018, in the Tabo region's Rangrik village in the Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh, officially took on the role of guru. In the Dorjidak Monastery at Panthaghati, on the outskirts of Shimla, he will begin his monk education. After Taklung Tsetul Rinpoche passed away on December 24, 2015, the search for his reincarnation began, and Nawang Tashi Rapten was found to be him earlier this year.
Himachal Pradesh | At first, we had no idea that my grandson is the reincarnation of Tibetan Lama, the late Taklung Setrung Rinpoche.

The boy's grandfather stated, "We feel lucky and it is a subject of pride for all of us that our son will be a preacher. "His ritual for getting his hair cut and changing clothes is today. His education will begin when he receives blessings from all the Lamas "He continued.
A large welcome ceremony was held in Shimla to welcome the Boy monk, which was organized by Tibetan Buddhist monks, residents of Dorjidak, and other followers of Buddhism from the Himalayan region of Himachal Pradesh. The little child has now enlisted in the Sangha as a monk and will begin his formal religious training at the Dorjidak Monastery in Panthaghati, Shimla.
