His Holiness Karma Kuchen Rinpoche was recognised by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche as the unmistaken reincarnation of Karma Thegchog Nyingpo, and His Holiness Penor Rinpoche raised him from a very young age – he is the most important of all tulkus that HH Penor Rinpoche has ever taught. Throughout his education he was closely guided by HH Penor Rinpoche, and after he mastered the sutras and tantras, he received numerous empowerments and teachings of Kama and Terma from His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and HH Penor Rinpoche and many great khenpos and lamas.
HH Penor Rinpoche is his root Guru, from whom he received the pith instructions of Dzogpa Chenpo from the Palyul tradition. In August 2000, he was formally enthroned as the 12th throne holder of the Palyul Lineage and became the supreme head of all the Palyul mother and branch monasteries.
