Empowerments and Transmission of the Treasure
Cycles of Orgyen Trinley Lingpa, Apong Terchen
August 5th - 7th, 2011
His Holiness Sakya Trizin, head of the Sakya lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, has very kindly agreed to the request of Jigme Tromge Rinpoche to offer transmission of this cycle, which includes the Red Tara practice that was widely taught by the late His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, and which continues to be done daily around the world in Chagdud Gonpa centers and practitioners' homes.
This is the first-ever transmission of the Apong Terton termas as received by His Holiness Sakya Trizin.
Apong Terton was born in Tibet in 1895. During his lifetime he served as sublime lama to great lamas, a spiritual guide to powerful rulers and a teacher to both monastic and lay practitioners. He gained accomplishment in many profound practices, transmitted the Nyingtik cycles of Dzogchen teachings and revealed his own termas.
In his earlier incarnation as Prince Mutik Tsenpo, he was entrusted by Guru Rinpoche with many treasures, later to be revealed by him as Orgyen Trinley Lingpa. Before Apong Terton passed away, he said he would enter the bloodline of the Sakya, and in 1945 was indeed reborn as His Holiness 41st Sakya Trizin. In the early 1960s, the yogi Jangchub Dorje, ageing custodian of Apong Terton's transmissions, went to India in order to give the transmission to His Holiness as previously instructed by Apong Terton. His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche had the great good fortune to encounter Jangchub Dorje on his way to meet HH Sakya Trizin, and at that time Chagdud Rinpoche received the Red Tara cycle transmission from him.
