The Nyingma Palyul Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism


1. A brief introduction to Tibetan Buddhism
In the 7th century AD when King Songtsen Gampo ruled over Tibet, Buddhism was introduced into Tibet. At that time the king sent Thonmi Sambhota, a translator, to India to study Indian languages and scripts. This led to the creation of Tibetan alphabet and establishment of classical Tibetan which started the written history for Tibet. Afterwards, the translator translated into Tibetan twenty-one sutras and tantras of Avalokitesvara, and The Powerful Secret and various other texts. Then, the king took as his queens two princesses respectively from China and Nepal, who introduced two images of Shakyamuni Buddha and numerous representations of the Three Jewels into Tibet. The king built the series of temples known as the Thadul and Yangdul, of which the principal one was the Rasa Trulnang. In this way he established Buddhism in Tibet.
Besides the Tibetan script, Buddhism, temples, sutra translation, the king also formulated the law to educate his people. Thus, Tibet Empire gradually became strong, powerful and civilized from then on.
In the 8th century AD, the Tibetan King Trisong Detsen invited to Tibet such Indian Buddhist masters and panditas as Padmasambhava, Shantarakshita, Vimalamitra, etc. To uphold representations of the Buddhas' form, he built Samye Monastery and many other temples. To uphold the Buddha's speech, the authentic Dharma, he also sent 108 translators including renowned Vairotsana from Tibet to India to learn the art of translation and then translated all the main sutras, tantras and sastras then current in the noble land of India. Furthermore, the king selected seven individuals as the “seven to be tested”, in order to observe if the Tibetan people are suitable to be monastic. This formed the Sangha, upholding the Buddha's mind. Subsequently, their efforts completely introduced into Tibet or Land of Snow all dharmas in India ranging from Hinayana to the supreme tantra.

2. A brief introduction to the Nyingma school
Through a series of ups and downs, Tibetan Buddhism has been developed into the four major schools: Nyingma (Red), Gelug (Yellow), Kagyu (White), Sakya (Tri-colored) and the Tathagata teachings and assurances have never been destroyed in the developing period. Therein, the Nyingma school is the oldest among the major four, dating back to more than 1,200 years ago when Guru Padmasambhava started to spread its dharmas in Tibet. It is the Dharma origin of Tibetan Buddhism. Among its teachings, “Dzogchen” is the most famous. From the Nyingma school, derived Kagyu, Sakya, Gelug and other schools one after another. Therefore, the Nyingma Dharma can be called the mother of Tibetan Buddhist dharmas. The Nyingma school has six famous Vajra Practicing Fields or Six Mother Monasteries, that is, Dorje Drak and Mindrolling in west Tibet, Shechen and Dzogchen in central Tibet, and Katok and Palyul in east Tibet. They are the six major lineages in the Nyingma school. Our lineage belongs to Palyul.

3. A brief introduction to Palyul Monastery
It is Palyul’s mother monastery, located in Baiyu County of Garze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichaun Province, China, fully styled “Palyul Holy Bodhi Dharma-Island”. It was a place blessed by Guru Padmasambhava and where the great translator, Vairotsana cultivated himself. Here was also the place where Jirechuejong Wangbo, the first disciple of Ma Chok Rinchen, stayed. Now the visitors to the place can still make a pilgrimage to his spiritual retreat cave. Ma Chok Rinchen was one of the 25 main disciples of Guru Padmasambhava. Jirechuejong Wangbo was an excellent Dharma host and extremely important heir to the Big Magical Net of Tantras. He once preached and practiced the tantras of the net here, and made unsurpassed achievements. Later, the masters like Kadang Badexie in Katok Monastery also came here to practice tantras of the net. Totally, there were about one hundred thousand persons attained the great rainbow body at this place. This is why here was also called Katok’s Holy Island. In addition, masters known as the Palyul Three Father-and-Sons, the great achiever Karma Chagme, the great terton Namcho Mingyur Dorje and the Maha-siddha Kunzang Sherab—all of them passed down their systematic guiding legacy of the Dzogchen Namcho Buddha in the Palm of the Hand from here, too.
In 1665, Rigzin Kunzang Sherab founded Palyul Temple, formerly known as Palyul Holy Bodhi Garden Monastery, and assembled 500 monastics to spread the Dharma. He was the first abbot of the temple. Based on early-period Katok teachings, Namcho Terma, and Ratna Lingpa’s Terma, he rolled the Dharma-wheel. Under his leadership, the temple was developed into a large monastery of more than 3,000 monastics. Later, a huge number of his disciples set up their own dharma-seat temples as hundreds of branches to Palyul Monastery.

His Holiness Jigmed Rinpoche


1. His birth
Our honorable Master is HH Jigmed Rinpoche fully named Khentrul Palden Rinpoche, Ogyen Thangs Dbyangs Drub Tra Palsongpo. He was born on May 10, 1971 (the same day Guru Padmasambhava was born) in today's Barkam County of Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province. His father is called Awanggexi and his mother, Jiasiji. His grandfather was a successful practitioner of the Gelug school teachings.
Like other tulkus, his birth displayed inconceivably auspicious signs. After two months of pregnancy, his mother started to urinate milk-white liquid. Despite visits to many famous doctors, the real cause was not found. The phenomenon was not back to normal till she gave birth to our Master. When he was born, he, encompassed by the fetal membrane like a transparent sphere, pressed his palms and sat in a lotus position. With five Buddha-birthmarks representing the five types of wisdom, his body emitted a sandalwood scent. At that time, a double rainbow appeared and lingered in the sky for a long time. (See the official website: www.palyul-tw.org)

  5. At the age of 12, he returned to Palyul Monastery and listened to Longchen Seven Treasuries preached by Musangkan Qianzacuo. Later he was tonsured by the Dzogchen achiever, Tulsong Rinpoche (Gyang Khang Tulku Thubten Balsong) , at Palyul Monastery.
  6. At the age of 18, he finished studying all the Tibetan Tripitaka.
  7. At the age of 19, he isolated himself for meditation and acquired Thubzang Rinpoche’s Dzogchen teachings. His isolation lasted for three years and three months, during which Dorje Phurba descended and bestowed empowerments on and gave instructions to him. Various senior monks have certified and praised him to have made achievements in his practice, which is as vast as the universe. And since his root guru Tulsong Rinpoche, conferred on him the Buddhist ritual hat and other Buddhist talismans à la Guru Padmasambhava, he has started to fulfill his compassionate vows by travelling the globe to spread the Dharma in order to save sentient beings.
  8. He was first invited by Penor Rinpoche to teach the minor tulkus at Namdroling Monastery in India.
  9. In 1997, at the invitation of Penor Rinpoche, he came to stay in Taiwan to spread the Dharma for long.

3. Enthronement
At the end of February 2003, he was invited again by Penor Rinpoche to Namdroling Monastery for the enthronement ceremony. During the ceremony, various masters like Penor Rinpoche, Maha-siddha Galong Rinpoche of Palyul-Tarthang Monastery, and Palyul Gyang Khang Tulku Tulsong Rinpoche certified him to be Knenchen Palden’s reincarnation, and unanimously recognized his great achievements in practicing Dzogchen With perfect completion of Buddha’s qualities.

4. Master’s nature, virtue and compassionate vows
  1. In order to spread the Dharma without any language barrier, he mastered colloquial Chinese with incredible Manjushri-like wisdom in a very short period of time. Ever since, he has been able to unreservedly confer the core and pith of Tibetan Buddhism on his disciples in Taiwan.
  2. He lamented that people were little blessed in the Dharma Decline period. Thus, many people even loved the Dharma but they did not understand it. They misunderstood the Dharma to be merely either chanting the Buddha and reciting sutras, or displaying supernatural powers. That was why they were very likely to be fooled and cheated by fake spiritual masters. Therefore, he has emphasized practicing the Dharma as the first top priority, and has required his disciples to lay a solid foundation to begin with the basic vow-making. He has led and guided his disciples step by step up into the profundity of the Dharma.
  3. He has not asked his disciples to make any offering to him. He has only wished them to learn the Dharma diligently and practice it in their daily lives. Consequently, they will truly help themselves and others depart from suffering towards joy. Hence, all Buddhist courses he conducts are free of charge.
  4. He participated in the full process of the establishment of each practicing field. Especially, he himself planned and designed the mandalas. During the construction period, he even led his disciples to get involved all the way from the removal of old decorations to the final completion. His efforts in this regard have been aimed to build a comfortable and convenient practicing field for the believers to listen to the Dharma with delight.
  5. He has contributed what he has been offered by his followers to the Buddhist undertakings: setting up practicing fields, building ten billion mantras prayer wheels, renovating Palyul Mother Monastery, the retreat center and advanced Buddhist Institute, building bridges, paving roads, making offering to monastics, etc. All that he has done indicates his compassionate vows to benefit all the living beings as a buddha or bodhisattva does.
