Eighth Lineage

The Venerable Lhodrak Nyidey Tulku Jewoen Rinpoche was born in the year 1983 at Tokaphu, Tongzhang from the holy family of present kabjay Namkhai Nyingpo Rimpoche.

The Rinpoche started his early education in English medium school at Tokaphu primary school, completed 6th grade from Tongzang primary school in 1997, 8th grade from Tshenkharla Middle Secondary school in 1999, 10th grade from Yangtse Middle secondary School in 2001 & 12th from Haa Ugyen Dorji Higher School in 2003. Rinpoche gradually completed his studies in english medium school by obtaining degree certificate from Darjeeling college, India in the year 2007 after which His Eminence stayed in Bumthang serving the kabjay Namkhai Nyingpo Rinpoche & his Dratshang administration for a year before recognition.
The Rinpoche was officially recognised by H.E Tai Situ Rinpoche and V.V khenchen Thrangru Rinpoche in the year 2008 as the incarceration of previous Jewoen Rinpoche, the Throne Holder of Lhodrak Nyidey Gonpa, a very renowned Karma Kaju Monastery in Tibet established(small Gonpa) by 5th karmapa Deshin Shekpa during his pilgrimage trip around and later it was renovated by 4th Shamar Rinpoche and handed over to Detsa Rinpoche (uncle of Jewoen Rinpoche).
After passing away of Detsa Rinpoche, the Monastery was under care of 1st Jewoen Choktrul Rinpoche and Gonpa (Lhodrak) became the main Densa (permanent Monastry) of Rinpoche and his unbroken chain of sucessive predecessors who expanded the Gonpa over the period of time, making it, one of the biggest karma kajuy Monastry under great leadership of Rinpoche, in sucessfull upholding of the karma Kaju leanage until the Tibet was invaded by China in 1959 during the reign of Moutsedung. The monastry was completely destroyed during the economy revolution of China towards end of 1950s & late 60s.
