three layers of rainbows were seen on the roof of their house, which was considered a very auspicious sign.
Later, a tulku from Dola Rinpoche's monastery brought along the letter of Tare Khandro to Kyabje Chadral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche in Pharping, Nepal who also recognized Yangsi Rinpoche as the tulku of Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche. Yangsi Rinpoche was further given the name of "Sangye Pema Shaypa Drodul Rigdzin Thinley Drupaydey", through a long life prayer, by Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche. Then, Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche further wrote a letter to consult Kyabje Dungsay Thinley Norbu Rinpoche in New York, who was of the same opinion as of Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche. Kyabje Dungsay Thinley Norbu Rinpoche also went to Chengdu, Sichuan to meet Yangsi Rinpoche in 1993.
Since then, many great lamas have recognized Yangsi Rinpoche as the tulku of Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, including H.H. Minling Trichen Rinpoche, H.H. Penor Rinpoche (the present Head of the Nyingma School), H.H. Sakya Trizin Rinpoche, Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche and Kathok Situ Rinpoche, among other high lamas of Tibetan Buddhism.
A most auspicious event took place on 25th November, 1994 in Kathmandu, Nepal. It was the day of Lha Bab Duchen (the day that Buddha Shakyamuni descended from heaven after giving teachings to His mother) that Yangsi Rinpoche, the tulku of Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II, was enthroned. A host of 12,000 people gathered for the ceremony at Godavari, the holy place of Vajrayogini. It was Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche who presided over the eight-hour enthronement ceremony, with H.H. Penor Rinpoche, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, Kathok Situ Rinpoche and many other Nyingma lamas present.
Kyabje Dudjom Yangsi Rinpoche sat as still as a statue for the entire length of the ceremony. Kyabje Chadral Rinpoche commented to Yangsi Rinpoche's father Dola Rinpoche that it was amazing, even miraculous, that a 4-year-old boy could do that while Chadral Rinpoche himself could not do that. Indeed, anyone who sees Yangsi Rinpoche will have no doubt that he is a divine being, whose presence in itself has the power to liberate sentient beings. It was prophesized by his own predecessor Dudjom Lingpa that "the billions of beings who come into contact with him will be liberated just by the sight, the recognition, the touch, and the experience, and they will be reborn in the Kingdom of Shambhala." 1
