His dad's name was Tsewang Phuntsok, and his mom's name was Kelzang Dolma. Having been told by a couple of experts in Derge that she would bear an extraordinary Bodhisattva, Kelzang Dolma went to remain in a holy cavern that was once utilized by Guru Rinpoche and there she anticipated the introduction of her child. She was joined by a Khenpo who educated her on the purifying service. It is expressed that close to the furthest limit of her pregnancy, the future Karmapa vanished from her belly for an entire day. He returned and Kelzang Dolma experienced typical pregnancy once more.

Tai Situpa gave him the name Rangjung Khyabdak Rigpe Dorje. While heading to his enthronement at Palpung, the Karmapa halted to visit and favor the Derge Monastic Publishing House, consequently preparing to later distribute the Buddhist standard in India. Tai Situ Rinpoche then, at that point, went with him on the long excursion to Tsurphu, the seat of the Karmapas in Central Tibet, where the Sixteenth Karmapa was welcomed by Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche, Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, and Nenang Pawo Rinpoche.
