Rinpoche's Birth Conditions
Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche the Third was born on July 6, 1961 in Bhutan, and is considered by the Tibetans as an emanation of Vimalamitra, King Trisong Detsen and the Bodhisattva Manjushri.

His maternal grandfather was the late Lobpon Sonam Zangpo, a great practitioner of the Drukpa Kagyu Lineage in Bhutan.
