Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche (b. 23 Oct 1964) is the title of a tulku lineage of Tibetan Buddhist lamas. They originate with Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, one of the most illustrious lamas of recent history, known for his central role in the rim or non-sectarian movement in 19th Century Tibet. Jigme Namgyel (b.1964) is the present Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche. He is the second or third incarnation, depending on whether Lodro Thaye is counted (he was not known as "Dzigar Kongtrul" -- that lineage is one of five distinct subsequent variants beginning after his death). The second Dzigar Kongtrul, Lodr Rabpel, was recognized by his root guru the 15th Karmapa, Khakyab Dorje, along with Karsey Kongtrul. He was the younger brother of Dzigar Chogtr l, a Drukpa Kagy of a long incarnate lineage. His bases of activity were Palpung Monastery, Tsanda Rinchen Drag and Dzong Sh, and later he founded a monastery known as Rango Tsokha near Neten G n, the monastery of the 2nd Neten Chokling Rinpoche to whom he was very close. According to Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, a contemporary master who died in 1996, Lodro Rabpel was renowned throughout Derge for his eloquence.
