Dzong-ngön Pema Tukchok Dorje (Tib. རྫོང་སྔོན་པདྨ་ཐུགས་མཆོག་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Wyl. rdzong sngon pad+ma thugs mchog rdo rje) (19th-20th century)[1] — a teacher of the Longchen Nyingtik lineage who was recognized as the incarnation of Dola Jikme Kalzang. His main teacher was Tertön Natsok Rangdrol (1796-1861)[2] and he also considered himself a student of the Fifth Dzogchen Rinpoche, Thupten Chökyi Dorje. He founded a monastery called Gochen Gön Mingyur Samten Ling (Wyl. go chen dgon mi 'gyur bsam gtan gling).

He composed several texts, such as a commentary on the Longchen Nyingtik Ngöndro. He also revealed mind termas such as the Yangzab Dechen Palmö Tukkyi Melong (Wyl. yang zab bde chen dpal mo'i thugs kyi me long).

Notes

  1. In the colophons of several of his texts he gives the dates of their composition, and in one of them he also gives his age in that year. However, he only gives the Tibetan years and doesn't supply the Rabjung cycle, so the following are estimates. Yet it seems most likely he was born in 1838 given that he says he was 55 in the water dragon year (most likely 1892). Other texts give their year of composition as the fire sheep year (probably 1907) and wood sheep year (probably 1895).
