The Treasury of Lives

The Neten Chokling incarnation line began with the recognition of Ngedon Drubpai Dorje as the reincarnation of Chokgyur Lingpa. They are based at Neten Monastery. Another line of incarnations is the Tsike, or Kela line.



Chokgyur Lingpa

b.1829 - d.1870

Chokgyur Lingpa was one of the most prolific treasure revealers of the nineteenth century. Based in Kham, he was a close collaborator with Jamgon Kongtrul and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, with whom he revealed treasure and opened sacred sites. Among his best-known revelations are the Barche Kunsel, the Zabpa Kor Dun, and the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo, for which Jamgon Kongtrul wrote a famous commentary. Chokgyur Lingpa also revealed an enumeration of great sites in Khams that had a significant impact on the sacred geography of the region. He established two monastic centers, Tsike and Netan, seats of the Tsike and Neten lines of his reincarnation.
