BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO H.E. DHARMA KING RABJAM
H.E. Dharma King Rabjam is the dharma king of the Shechen Monasteries, which is one of the six main groups of monasteries of the Nyingma sect.
The present Dharma King Rabjam is the seventh Dharma King Rabjam. His birth on an auspicious day in 1966 in Qiangdiga, India caused the appearance of auspicious signs. H.H. the sixteenth Great Jewel Dharma King recognized him as the incarnation of H.E. the sixth Dharma King Rabjam and performed an enthronement ceremony for him. In the year of 2007, as requested by the International Buddhism Sangha Association, H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III recognized H.E. the seventh Dharma King Rabjam as the incarnation of Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche.
When H.E. Rabjam Rinpoche was fifteen years old, he was tonsured by H.E. Dharma King Trulshik of the Nyingma sect and entered the monastic life. At the age of twenty, the rinpoche received the upasampada (complete set of precepts given to a monk who enters the order) from H.E. Dharma King Trulshik. He later learned from many extremely holy masters, especially from his root master, H.H. Dharma King Dilgo Khyentse, and from H.H. the fourteenth Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trizin, H.H. the sixteenth Great Jewel Dharma King, H.E. Dharma King Chogye Trichen, H.H. Dharma King Penor of the Nyingma sect, and H.E. Kalu Rinpoche of the Shangpa Kagyu. He finally became a vajra master and famous dharma king of the unbroken Nyingma lineage.
Currently, besides building monasteries, H.E. Dharma King Rabjam is propagating the dharma and benefiting living beings around the world. He also is responsible for supervising and training Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, who is the incarnation of H.H. Dharma King Dilgo Khyentse.
