Pema Lingpa (Wyl. pad+ma gling pa) (1450-1521) was an important tertön from Bhutan, listed as the fourth of the five sovereign terma revealers. He is considered to be the last of the five incarnations of princess Pema Sal. According to Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche: "the first of [ Longchenpa's incarnations] was Rigdzin Pema Lingpa, [...] a fact implicitly referred to in Stainless Light, Longchenpa's last will and testament."
