Lochen Dharmashri

Lochen Dharmashri (Tib. ལོ་ཆེན་དྷརྨ་ཤྲཱི་, Wyl. lo chen d+harma shrI) aka Ngawang Chöpal Gyatso (Tib. ངག་དབང་ཆོས་དཔལ་རྒྱ་མཚོ་, Wyl. ngag dbang chos dpal rgya mtsho) (1654-1717) — one of the greatest scholars of the Nyingma school, whose collected writings fill twenty volumes and include important commentaries on the Guhyagarbha Tantra. He was an emanation of Yudra Nyingpo and the younger brother of Minling Terchen Gyurme Dorje, the founder of Mindroling Monastery. He was tragically killed during the Dzungar war of 1717-8, during which Mindroling was destroyed.

  • The Illumination of the Profound Meaning, The Pith Instructions on the Method of Reciting the Sangwa Nyingpo, The Tantra of the Essence (snying po'i rgyud bklag thabs kyi man ngag zab don snang ba)
    • English translation: The Illumination of the Profound Meaning, The Pith Instructions on the Method of Reciting the Sangwa Nyingpo, The Tantra of the Essence. Upon the request of Khenpo Namdrol, Lama Yeshe Nyima, with the guidance of Lopon Sonam Bumde, translated this at Olu Pua, Kawaui, Hawaii. April - May 2003.
    • Colophon: The three doors of body, speech and mind, the play of deity, mantra and meditative absorption, the nature of yogic practice is the Tantra of the Profound Great Secret. Those who teach, listen, write, reciting or carry this Tantra, will be held in high regard of the Vajra Holders. Like that, after receiving the permission of the Lord of the Dharma, unequalled in kindness, Dharmashri, who received this transmission from that sublime teacher, wrote this text. This is dedicated to be the cause of benefit to beings and virtue. May there be Virtue!
