His Eminence Tharig Tulku Rinpoche who was reputed as a prominent figure among his disciples scattered all over the world until his Pari-nirvana in 1998 in Singapore, is holding the unbroken lineage of Naga-rakchita (Khon Lui Wangpo Sungwa) direct disciple of Guru Padsambhava and Shantarakchita, one of the first seven monks in probation during the time of King Trisong Deutsen in the beginning of 7th century. Thus, it is believed that the present Tharig tulku Rinpoche is the direct descendent of Naga-rakchita.
