Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche - The new head of the Nyingma School

Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche has accepted the position of the new head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. The previous head, Kyabje Minling Trichen Rinpoche, passed away in 2008, and so it fell to his monastery, Mindrolling, to initiate the process of deciding the next head of the Nyingmas. 

You can read about the process by which Trulshik Rinpoche came to be the new head on the Mindrolling website.
