在澄澈純淨如雪域天空的白玉傳承裡，前四世的 噶瑪古千仁波切分別為白玉第四代法王噶瑪曲巴絨波、第六代法王晉美恩旦丹增、第八代法王多傲確吉尼瑪及第十代法王噶瑪廳曲寧波。他與歷代的 貝諾法王互為師徒，並共同掌持此偉大純淨的寧瑪巴傳承。
第一世的 噶瑪古千法王是金剛持明巖藏取尊明珠多傑的化身。許多神聖的預言指出， 噶瑪古千法王的前世包括佛陀的弟子阿難、顯現改變大川流向的蓮師二十五大弟子中的修普帕機紳格、大譯師毗廬遮那、明林德千、格登寺的座主格登赤巴、建造瀘定橋的大成就者唐東嘉波及第七世達賴喇嘛的親教師雅旺卻登等。同時，他也是杜督多傑的心、噶陀七美瑜伽的語及貝瑪坤卓南嘉的身的化身。
歷代的噶瑪古千法王除了具足如大海般的教證成就外，住持佛陀聖教特別是蓮師內三密的教法及利益眾生的事業是無量無邊的。尤其特別的是白玉傳承屬特近傳承，其傳承加持力從未衰損，而於一切四種事業（息、增、懷、誅）皆圓滿成就。西元一七五五前後，大清帝國曾因戰亂禮請白玉第四代法王噶瑪曲巴絨波修法，因而消弭了戰亂。乾隆皇帝於是特別冊封第一世的 噶瑪古千法王為帝師，並贈金字詔書、御轎，寺院因之名聲大震。 噶瑪古千法王成為第一位把白玉傳承帶至漢地的上師。
此世的噶瑪古千法王於西元一九七○年（藏曆的鐵狗年）八月二十八日在種種祥瑞的徵兆下誕生於南印度。父親名為恭久奔波阿納多傑南嘉，母親名為參覺。當仁波切二歲時， 貝諾法王便告知其父母，此小孩為大成就者的轉世，他的衣服與飲食必須潔淨。在仁波切四歲時，蓮師的代表前寧瑪派掌教法王 敦珠仁波切與 貝諾法王共同在禪定中確認此聖童為上代法王 噶瑪廳曲寧波（第四代 噶瑪古千法王）的轉世無疑。
The Fifth Karma Kuchen Rinpoche was born on August 28, 1970, in the year of Iron Dog, along with many auspicious signs to a noble religious family. When he was 2 years old, His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche (the eleventh Throne Holder) notified his parents that their son is the reincarnation of a great mahasiddha, and to care for him accordingly.
When H.H Karma Kuchen Rinpoche was 4 years old, both the late H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche (also the manifestation of Guru Rinpoche ) and H.H. Penor Rinpoche confirmed that, in their meditations, this child was the unmistaken incarnation of the Fourth Karma Kuchen Rinpoche (Karma Thegchog Nyingpo). The young Karma Kuchen was then invited to Namrdoling Monastery where Penor Rinpoche looked after him and provided him with the traditional education afforded such incarnate masters according to tradition. Karma Kuchen Rinpoche studied and perfected the teachings of Nam Chö (Sky Teachings) preliminaries (ordinary and extraordinary), Tsa Lung and up to Dzogpachenpo under the direct guidance of H.H. Penor Rinpoche. He also took the Bhikshu and Bodhisattva vows, and received the Nam Chö, Ratna Lingpa’s Revelations and Rinchen Terzö empowerments from H.H. Penor Rinpoche. In addition, he received many teachings under the late H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Nyoshul Khenpo Rinpoche, and many other great siddhas.
He has displayed infinite wisdom and understanding of Vajrayana and Mahayana teachings when he gave a long discourse at the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute, in the presence of many high Khenpos.
Keeping in view of his wonderful qualities of a master, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche appointed him as the Head of the Palyul Mother Monastery in Tibet in 1994. On 14 August 2000, he was formally enthroned as the Twelfth Throne Holder of the Palyul Lineage. Equipped with inconceivable wisdom, modesty, grace and boundless compassion, he has vowed to bring peace and happiness to all sentient beings and spread the supreme Dharma in the ten directions. Penor Rinpoche on many occasions appreciated his efforts in holding the pure lineage of Palyul tradition and dissemination of Buddha Dharma in the Land of Snows. All who have encountered him have been touched by his strength and humility. Those who were close to H. H. Penor Rinpoche are touched by the similarity of the two masters, including Karma Kuchen’sresponses to ordinary day-to-day situations and even the very hand gestures he uses when teaching.
The significant achievement of Karma Kuchen Rinpoche since his arrival in Tibet was that he had built many temples, stupas, prayer wheels, images of deities and other objects of veneration and faith. Under the direction of Penor Rinpoche, hehas built a very grand and magnificent temple within the monastery premises.
Of the many remarkable qualities that he possesses, the most striking quality is his strict and pure observance of all the vows of a monk. He is thus the embodiment of pure conduct in these degenerate times.
