More than 4 weeks availability
A Drop from the Marvelous Ocean of History, written by Lelung Tuklu Rinpoche XI, the current reincarnation of Lelung Jedrung, chronicles the history of this important lineage. Using varied Tibetan resources and biographies, Rinpoche begins with the source of the reincarnations, Olkha Jedrung, known as Lelung Pema Zhepai Dorje, who was the first human manifestation of the Buddhist deity Vajrapani, the powerful Lord of Secrets. He is the compiler and protector of the profound Tantras, which are the ultimate vehicle of the Buddha's teachings. From the origin of the lineage, Rinpoche moves through time until the mid 1900s, tracing the lives of each Lelung reincarnation, beginning with Lhodrak Namkha Gyaltsen, who was born in 1326, and moving through to his predecessor Thubten Lungtok Choekyi Wangchuk, who passed away in 1962. This wonderful compilation will be a valuable resource about this essential part of Tibetan history.
Tenzin Phuntsok Loden, the Eleventh Lelung Jedrung Rinpoche, was born in 1970, and recognized by the Great Fourteenth Dalai Lama in 1984. He was educated in Drepung Monastic University for another thirteen years. After graduating, he offered back his monastic vows, considering that, due to the nature of the times, he could be more of help to His Holiness and to Tibet by working in the lay world. He has done years of research in the effort to revive the Lelung Jedrung lineage, finding and publishing in Tibetan many of the rare works of his predecessors.
