Relic of the 15th Karmapa

His Holiness the 15th Karmapa (1871-1922), Khakhyab Dorje, was born in the Tsang province of central Tibet. He was recognised and enthroned by the Kyabgon Drukchen Mingyur Wanggi Gyalpo. He received the transmissions of teachings from Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye and studied with many great masters. He gave empowerments throughout Tibet, and preserved many rare texts by having them reprinted. He was known for his poetry and his perfection of the profound path of the Six Dharmas of Naropa.

Khakyab Dorje was the first in the line of Karmapas to marry. He had three sons, one of whom was recognised as the second Jamgon Kongtrul Palden Khyentse Oser. Khakyab Dorje was also one of the predicted lineage holders of Chokgyur Lingpa’s (Choling Terton) termas (hidden teachings).


The relics were offered by Lama Tsultrim Gyaltso Rinpoche at a Relic event in Stockholm in 2007.

Lama Tsultrim received these from Karma Wangyal who recovered these relics in 1990 when a stupa was destroyed revealing the body. Many relics appeared on the ground.
