Ringu Tulku(b. 1952 - ) 

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche was born in Kham Lingtsang, in eastern Tibet, and recognized by His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapa as the incarnation of one of the tulkus of a Kagyüpa monastery in his home province. When asked to introduce himself during an interview with Alexander Berzin's Study Buddhism website, he replied, "My name is Ringu Tulku. Ringu is the name of my monastery, which is in Eastern Tibet. I myself was mainly educated in Sikkim, India. I studied under different khenpos and lamas, but I consider Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche and the 16th Karmapa as my main teachers. I received all my ordinations from them, but I’ve also had the opportunity to receive teachings from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism." (Source: Study Buddhism)
