Since His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche passed away in 2007, his two assistants, Chogye Shabdrung and Gar Shabdrung have been working together but in some ways both have been waiting to receive direction. At the repeated request of many disciples and the Nalendra monastic community from Tibet, HH Sakya Trizin has written to Jamchen Lhakhang to organise an enthronement ceremony of the two Shabdrungs and that the two should take turns as the Head of the Tsharpa lineage and act accordingly to fulfil the wishes of the late Chogye Trichen. It is expected that an enthronement ceremony will be held around the 10th anniversary of His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche. This means that Chogye Shabdrung Rinpoche will be enthroned as the 26th Chogye Trichen
