Prophecy of the Signs: His Holiness the Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje's Letter Describing the Signs of Jamgon Rinpoche's Birth








From here, in the direction to the south, the place is a distance of seven days on a good steed.

A son was born in the Year of the Pig, to a father whose name includes "ga" or "ma"*, and to a mother whose name includes "tha" or "kha"**. There are eight in their family.

As for the place, in front there is a great black mountain, its view partially obscured by the mountains to its right and left. Between a mighty river rushes forth.

The house is two storeys and well-built; its door faces east.

This vision of his birthplace has appeared to me.

As for the pujas to be performed, if one hundred thousand tsok-offering pujas of the Protector and, as many as possible, the pujas of Gyalwa Gyamtso are done, his activity as the glorious protector of beings and the doctrine will be ensured.

I, therefore, grant this letter describing the signs of Jamgon Rinpoche.


Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje
April 11, 1996.
