Reincarnate Lamas (Tib. tulku; yangsi) Lama who is recognized, usually in childhood, as the rebirth of a previous lama, and who takes over the previous lama’s position and property by virtue of this recognition. Disputes over recognition of reincarnate lamas are common (see PANCHEN LAMA, KARMAPA), and sometimes multiple rebirths are recognized for a single lama.
