The 9th reincarnation of Neyphug Trulku Rinpoche was born in Bhutan in 1980, he was recognized by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche as the reincarnation of Yongdzin Ngawang Dragpa, the First Neyphug Trulku, and conferred the name ‘Ngawang Shetdrup Chokyi Nyima‘ (the Lord of Speech) for the new Trulku. Trulkus are reincarnations of highly realized masters whose dedication to others compels them to be reborn. Their rebirth is motivated by compassion and usually to carry on responsibilities from their previous lives and work towards the benefit of sentient beings.
