The Great Terton Book Launch

November 20, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Dear Dharma brothers and sisters,

It is with great joy and honor that we announce the upcoming launch of our new book, The Great Tertön: Phakchok Rinpoche’s presentation of the lineage of Chokgyur Lingpa and its history of faith, devotion, and pure perception. The Chokling Tersar, the lineage of Chokgyur Lingpa’s New Treasures, is Phakchok Rinpoche’s family lineage and the lineage of his teachers. The Great Tertön is part of Rinpoche’s activity to bring the Chokling Tersar lineage to his students across the world.

The Great Tertön is an indispensable book for all Chokling Tersar practitioners, but also a source of wisdom and inspiration for any follower of the Vajrayāna. It presents the ground, path, and fruition of Chokgyur Lingpa’s life and activities, which take their source in Guru Rinpoché, and continue into the present day. The life-stories of the main lineage masters, from Guru Rinpoché, to Chokgyur Lingpa, to the present day Chokling incarnations bring the contemporary reader closer to these great figures of the past. Phakchok Rinpoché’s commentary on each text further allows for a deeper understanding, which can be applied into practice directly with the accompanying supplication and aspiration prayers. Filled with amazing accounts, replete with teachings on devotion and pure perception, The Great Tertön offers practitioners all the necessary resources to cultivate the right approach towards our practice and our teachers.

The launch of The Great Tertön will coincide with the Thukdrub Barché Künsel (Guru’s Heart Practice: Dispeller of All Obstacles) Empowerments that Kyabje Chokling Rinpoche will be giving from November 23rd onwards in our monastery in Kathmandu, Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling. The Thukdrub Barché Künsel is one of Chokgyur Lingpa’s most important Treasure cycles, forming about a third of the thirty-nine volumes that comprise his collected revelations, the New Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa. We encourage all devotees to take this unique opportunity to attend and receive these sacred empowerments from Kyabje Chokling Rinpoche, the reincarnation of tertön Chokgyur Lingpa himself. For more details on the Empowerments schedule, please visit the website:

A limited number of copies of the book will be available in Nepal at the time of the empowerments. If you would like to reserve a copy, please email us at [email protected]

If you would like to be notified when the book is released, please subscribe to the Lhasey Lotsawa Translations and Publications mailing list by following this link: https://lhaseylotsawa.org/books

May the auspicious concurrence of these events create the conditions for the spread of the Chokling Tersar far and wide!
