The Drub-dra schools he has established in the West are a continuation
of the model of the Drub-dra school founded by Zhu Nam-gyal Drak-pa
in the early 20th Century at the waist of Mount Mo-meinin Dromo
(upper Chumbi Valley), southern part of Tibet. This first Drub-dra
was located at Dho-kyim (a rustic type of retreat house) which takes
3 hours on foot from His monastery Pungmo Gon. The present Drub-dra
of the Zhu lineage is called Khyimsar Drub-dra.
Khemar Rinpoche and his elder brother Lama Sonam G. Khemsar are
both regarded by their predecessors and their parents as Yang-sid-Trul-kus
of Tshampa Yungdrung Wangyal the then 14th seat holder of Pungmo
Gon. There is the notion in Yungdrung Bön and Buddhism that
a Lama could reincarnate in to three trul-kus, each of them representing
a different aspects (body, speech and mind).
