The
Eighth
Throne
Holder
The
Third
Karma
Kuchen
Rinpoche,
Orgyen
Do‐Ngag
Chokyi
Nyima
(1854
‐
1906)
The
third
Karma
Kuchen
Rinpoche
Do‐ngag
Chokyi
Nyima
was
born
in
Ahlo
Khateng
in
the
fourteenth
rabjung
year
of
the
Wood
Tiger
(1854).
His
birth
was
prophesied
by
a
letter
left
behind
by
Karma
Gyurmed,
which
clearly
indicated
the
location
of
the
birth.
As
befitted
the
birth
of
a
great
lama,
light
of
rainbow
colors
suffused
the
sky
and
awe‐
inspiring
resonances
echoed
through
the
air.
The
fourteenth
Karmapa
gave
Do‐ngag
Chokyi
Nyima
the
Refuge
Vow
and
soon
after
he
was
enthroned
as
the
eighth
Throne
Holder
at
the
Palyul
Monastery.
After
he
received
the
full
ordination
(gelong),
he
was
given
the
formal
name
Orgyen
Do‐ngag
Chokyi
Nyima.
Transmission
from
many
sources
including
those
of
the
Palyul
tradition
were
given
to
Do‐ngag
Chokyi
Nyima
by
Gyatrul
Rinpoche,
Washul
Lama
Sonam
Namgyal,
Khang‐nang
Lama
Tashi
Phuntsok,
Dzogchen
Dorje
Rabten,
Jamyang
Khyentse
Wangpo,
Jamgon
Kongtrul
Rinpoche,
Lhatrul
Pedma
Garwang,
Drubwang
Drodul
Pawo
Dorje,
and
many
other
eminent
masters
of
the
time.
Do‐ngag
Chokyi
Nyima’s
mind
was
full
of
compassion
for
all
sentient
beings.
Much
as
he
wished
to
be
in
solitary
retreat,
he
opted
instead
to
follow
his
root
guru
Gyatrul
Rinpoche’s
advice
and
devoted
his
life
to
propagating
Buddha
Dharma.
Regardless
of
how
busy
his
schedule
was,
his
personal
practice
started
daily
without
fail
at
three
in
the
morning.
His
successful
attainment
of
having
the
mind
inseparable
from
the
four
elements
enabled
him
to
perform
many
extraordinary
deeds,
which
were
deemed
miraculous
by
others.
In
the
fifteenth
rabjung
year
of
the
Fire
Horse
(1906),
Chokyi
Nyima
dissolved
into
the
pure
realm
of
clear
light.
He
was
fifty‐three
years
old.
During
the
cremation
ceremony,
cloud
formations
resembling
large
tents
manifested
across
an
otherwise
cloudless
sky,
accompanied
by
a
mild
shower
of
light
rain.
A
large
number
of
bone
relics
were
found
on
the
ground.
These
were
gathered
together
and
placed
within
a
Stupa
of
gold
and
copper
that
was
constructed
to
the
left
of
the
Avalokiteshvara
temple.
