Texts by the treasure-revealer Shikpo Lingpa Gargyi Wangchuk Tsal (zhig po gling pa gar gyi dbang phyug rtsal, 1524–1583):
- The Sādhana of the Five Self-Arisen Noble Brothers: An Instruction in the Union of Generation and Completion | Avalokiteśvara
Revealed during a vision in 1557, this is a sādhana of the five self-arisen Avalokiteśvara brothers ('phags pa rang byon mched lnga). These are four ancient statues associated with King Songtsen Gampo, i.e., Ārya Vati Zangpo, Ārya Bukham, Ārya Jamali, and Ārya Lokeśvara, as well as the self-visualization of Avalokiteśvara generated by the practitioner.
