6th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu
The 6th Jebtsundamba Khutughtu (1842–1848), was the sixth incarnation of the Jebtsundamba Khutuktu, the spiritual heads of the Gelug lineage of Tibetan Buddhism in Mongolia. His personal name was Luvsantüvdenchoyjijaltsan and his Tibetan ceremonial name Blo-bzang-dpal-ldan-bstan-pa.
The son of local donkey shepherds, he was found and determined by monks after the death of the previous (fifth) Jebtsundamba Khutughtu to be the sixth incarnation. He died however from smallpox at the young age of six after only 59 days on the throne.
