Letter of Recognition of the 4th Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche by H.H. the 17th Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje

In Chushur district in Sehmed shang, a boy was born in the Year of the Pig to a father named "Gonpo" and a mother named "Yangkyi". This boy and the circumstances of his birth have been carefully examined in accordance with the Letter Describing the Signs. Since I am now certain that this boy is undoubtedly the reincarnation of the Third Jamgon, I hereby offer my recognition of him as the Fourth Jamgon. I pray that his life be long and that his activity flourish.

Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje
The Seventeenth Rabjung, Year of the Rat,
Sixth Lunar Month, Twenty-seventh Day.
