Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche Series
Texts and teachings by Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche (o rgyan stobs rgyal, b. 1951), son of the Third Neten Chokling Rinpoche and renowned teacher of the Vajrayāna:
Tsewang Paljor was the nephew and private secretary and treasurer (chakdzö) of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, and the father of Dzogchen Rinpoche. This obituary first appeared in the Tibetan language newspaper Nyenchen Thanglha in 1999.
A brief history of the sacred image of Tārā, the Wish-Fulfilling Wheel (yid bzhin 'khor lo), in Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo’s residence, known as ‘The Garden of Immortality’ ('chi med grub pa'i dga' tshal), in Dzongsar Monastery, Derge, East Tibet.
As he explains in the colophon, Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche wrote this short prayer himself for recital during group rituals, in place of the more laudatory, effusive prayers composed by some of his teachers.
Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche took the Etrom Lower Activities Manual from the Yangsang Tukkyi Purchik as a basis and added verses from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s Nyakluk Phurba and a Rigdzin Kulwa from the Sakya tradition. The text was compiled during the Netik Phurba Drupchen in Lerab Ling, 2018.
