The Treasury of Lives

The Tsike, or Kela Chokling line of incarnations began with the recognition of Konchok Gyurme as one of two incarnations of Chokgyur Lingpa. The line is based at Tsike Monastery. The other incarnation line is the Neten Chokling.



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.
