Khandro Dorje Phagmo Rinpoche
The current incarnation of Dorje Phagmo was born Farchen Zangmo in Kabesa in Punakha District, Bhutan on the full-moon of the second month of the Iron Monkey year (1980). Her biological parents were Tandin Gyeltshen and Lhachoe Droelma. Her birth was preceded by many auspicious signs. Among them her mother saw a ray of light hitting the womb in her dream. The light emanated from a golden statue of Dorje Phagmo, bestowed by a monk. The monk is believed to be Guru Padmasambhava.
