page 107—in the fire monkey year, I, Pema Yeshe Dorje, whilst on a pilgrimage to India and Nepal bringing happiness to the teachings and beings, on the first day of the twelfth month, while performing a tsok of Phur Drakma (?), had a clear vision in my mind. On the morning of the second, my student, the Tsechu Lama Chöpen Lodrö Chokden brought some paper and requested me to write down whatever I remembered. So I wrote something in that very place and then when arriving in Swayambhunath (?), I wrote whatever arose in my mind.

Page 112—on the thirteenth of the seventh month in the (dbang chen?) monkey year, whilst staying in Taklung Tsidra, I had a dream…and then wrote this down without making any alterations early on the fourteenth.

Page 117—wood sheep on the 16th of the eighth month when arriving at Palha Sumdo my student, a lama from Nangchen Tsechu, Chöpen Chokden requested this but nothing arose in my mind. Then, on the 17th, when crossing the pass at Kala’i Sekhar, and seeing the landscape ….this arose in my mind and I wrote it down. At the beginning I remembered the place names in the languages of Oddiyana and Shyang-shyung, but thought that if I wrote them down roughly this would just become an object of derision for the learned, so I have not included them.

Page 128—early on the nineteenth of the seventh month of the Earth Dog year (1958) whilst in Darjeeling this arose in my mind

although I had already written this brief and clear daily practice for the kyerim of the outer and inner, ordinary and extraordinary preliminaries of the Druptop Kagye, this special arrangement was made in response to a request from Mipham Tulku Ngawang Chöpel, the son of my own student Khyungpo Nyak Lama Pema Chögyal. May reciting this with the intention to benefit self and others be the cause for all sentient beings finding freedom through the path of the great secret vajrayana.

snyan brgyud phur pa’i phrin las kyi byang bu khrigs bsdebs phrin las rnam rol (347-370)

regarding this arrangement of the long sadhana of Nyengyü Phurba, my nephew and secretary Lama Tsewang Paljor requested this most persistently in the past. Then, recently Pön Lama Rigdzin of Nyak Adzirong (?) offered a golden mandala plate together with some paper and requested that I write it soon. Then this was composed by the one who merely holds the name of an activity emanation of the great tertön Lama, Jamyang Lodrö Gyatso or Pal Rikchok Drubpé Dorje Trinlé Düpa Tsal in the Water Sheep year (1943) on the twenty-first day of the eighth month, which is an auspicious date astrologically, in the place known as Chimé Drubpé Gatsal. It was written down by Ngawang Lodrö…


las byang phrin las rnam rol mdzes rgyan (371-386)

this was written by Chökyi Lodrö for those who want to make the long sadhana more elaborate by arranging the words of the great vidyadharas of the past. The scribe was Vakindramati (Ngawang Lodrö).

this tordok for the practice of Nyengyü Phurba entitled the Vajra Thunderbolt that Utterly Obliterates all Enemies and Obstacle Makers was first requested by the Pönpo of Nyak Adzi Drihe (??), Lama Rigdzin, and then it was also suggested by the All-seeing supreme Tulku Rinpoche Tashi Paljor that it would be good to combine this with the long sadhana that I had already written. With the auspicious coming together of these two requests, I, Jamyang Lodrö Gyatso or Trinle Drubpa Tsal wrote this in the Dharma encampment of Dzongsar Tashi Lhatsé on during the sixth month of the Earth Mouse year (1948)…


phur pa’i las bzhi’i sbyin sreg mdor bsdus phrin las myur grub (441-459)

According to the requests of Lodrö Chokden, the Lama from Tsechu in Nangchen, this was written very essentially following the thorough research of both Chökyi Lodrö and Tashi Paljor. May it bring the supreme goodness!

According to the requests of Lodrö Chokden, the Lama from Tsechu in Nangchen, this was written very essentially by Chökyi Lodrö by gathering together the speech of the vidyadharas of the past.
