A Brief Note from Sapan Rinpoche July 24, 2007 4:08 AM

The Drikung Kagyu Lineage of Dzogchen is of course a fine addition to the information available on the Internet about Dzogchen. However, the main lineage teachings of Ati Yoga Dzogchen are also represented on the Internet and attention should be given to that. Dzogchen, in the first place, is NOT something that so very much can be said on an open internet; however, there are references to the literature which any serious student of Dzogchen should avail himself or herself. There is more information availabel, for example, on my Dharma teaching sites, and here are the care2 URLS: [1] Meditation - DZOGCHEN - Ati Yoga - Healing Circle [2] VAJRYANA PATHWAYS INSTITUTE WITHOUT WALLS [3] Phuntsok Choephel Ling Monastery Project Feel free to check these out and good luck and best wishes in all of your ongoing spiritual development. Kindest regards, Sapan Rinpoche  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

The Lineage Transmission

Guru Rinpoche to King Mutik Tsenpo (son of King Tsirong Deutsen) to Drigung Tertön Rinchen Phuntsog (17th lineage holder of Drigung Kagyu & YangZab gTerma Revealer) until the present day lineage holders Chokyi Jugne (Present Holiness Chuntsang Rinpoche) and Thinley Lhundrub (Present Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche).

Brief Introduction
Drigung Kagyu Maha Ati (Dzogchen) Lineage

The Yang Zab (The practices of the Very Profound Vision) is regarded as  supreme among all the Yanas--it embodies the very essence of the tantric teachings. As a Dzogchen practice, it is unique within the Drigung lineage, as it was revealed by the Drigung Tertön (hidden treasure revealer), Rinchen Phuntsog and he is also the 17th throne holder of the Glorious Drigung Kagyu Order.

During the eighth century, King Trisong Deutsen of Tibet, an emanation of Manjushri, invited Guru Rinpoche to the Land of Snows in order to subdue demonic forces hostile to the Dharma. Having accomplished his wishes and having founded Samye Monastery, the king showed signs of approaching death, and soon passed away. The  king's son, Prince Mutik Tsenpo (also known as Sena Lek) became king, and received the Yang Zab empowerments and instructions from Guru Rinpoche.

The youthful king found that his fathers duties were were so numerous that he had little time to practice Dharma. Guru Rinpoche instructed him to put the practice into text form  and prepare six copies on durable sheets of gold, turquoise, copper and other materials.

These were then wrapped in precious materials and  hidden by Yeshe Tsogyal in Zhoto Terdrom on the limestone massif to the north in the Great Assembly Hall of the Sky Dancers cave (Khandro Tsok Khang Kiri Yang Zong Namkha Phug) located in a towering peak.

The terma was revealed by the Drigung Tertön Rinchen Phuntsog, himself an emanation of King Mutik Tsenpo, during the first half of the sixteenth century. The Yang Zab has been transmitted uninterruptedly down through the Drigung lineage to the present.
