"Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, 1820-1892, ('jam dbyangs mkhyen brtse' dbang po, 1820-1892) was born in the village of Dilgo (dil mgo) in the Terlung (gter klung) valley to the southeast of the Dege capital. His father was Rinchen Namgyal (rin chen rnam rgyal), and his mother was named Sonam Tso (bsod nams 'tsho). His clan was Shingkhamga (shing khams sga) and his lineage was the Nyo (myos). A lama named Sharchen Rinchen Mingyur Gyaltsen (shar chen rin chen mi 'gyur rgyal mtshan, d.u.) named him Rinchen Wanggyal (rin chen dbang rgyal), and later his father gave him the name Tsering Dondrub (tshe ring don grub). He had at least two brothers: Kalzang Dorje (skal bzang rdo rje) and Gyurme Dondrub ('gyur med don grub)." (Read the full biography by Alexander Gardner).
