Jikmé Losel Wangpo was recognized by Kyabjé Dodrupchen Rinpoche as the seventh in the line of Dzogchen Rinpoches, which began with the great 17th century master Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin. This was subsequently confirmed by Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama. His enthronement ceremony took place on October 8, 1972, at Sikkim's royal palace in Gangtok.
