Simply defined, reincarnation is the religious and philosophical concept that the soul or spirit (or consciousness, in Buddhism), after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal, or even spirit-like depending on the moral quality of the previous life’s actions. This doctrine is a central tenet of the Indian religions. It is also a common belief of various ancient and modern religions such as Spiritism and Theosophy.
Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama’s Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche. He received teachings from twenty-five masters representing all five schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He has been teaching Buddhism and Tibetan culture to thousands of followers all over the world and has set up many Dharma centers, including the Heruka Dharma Center. Tulku Yeshi has published over thirteen books including biographies of Lama Yongzin and H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Dorje Chang. His written works also include literature and poetry. Currently, he is working with the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives to publish his autobiography, Journal of a Thousand Days, which numbers over 1,000 pages.
