Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Gyalwang Drukpa or Drukchen ("Druk" means "Dragon," and "Chen" means "Chenpo" or "Great" in Tibetan, an unofficial address of His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa) are a line of re-incarnate lamas or tulku who are the head of the Drukpa school, one of the independent Sarma (new) schools of Tibetan Buddhism. They are considered to be re-incarnations of Tsangpa Gyare Yeshe Dorje the first Gyawang Drukpa and founder of the school. The present Gyalwang Drukpa, Jigme Pema Wangchen is the twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa. The Drukpa Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism traces its origin back to the primordial Buddha Vajradhara (Dorje Chang in Tibetan) through an unbroken line of masters. The early founders of the lineage include the great teachers Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa, Milarepa, Gampopa, Rechungpa, Phagmo Drupa and Lingchen Repa. Lingchen Repa was the guru of the first Gyalwang Drukpa, Tsangpa Gyare.show more
