Hi, gang - me again. :)
I heard a word a while back, and I don't know what it means - couldn't really get it from context either. The word - as you already know from the title - is 'Tuklu'. Can anyone tell me what it means?
Thanx!

KAMI : Hello, Dave!

TULKU (and not "Tuklu"), in Tibetan Buddhism, is the reincarnation of a holy man. As the Rinpoche has said it means just that, not anything more, not anything less.

To become worthy and in order to evolve, one has to study and practice Buddhism (something Seagal Sensei - a recognized Tulku - does not seem to have done).

Best
