Dudjom Lingpa

b.1835 - d.1903

Dudjom Lingpa was an influential nineteenth-century treasure revealer. Known as an eccentric mystic, he composed around twenty-one volumes of writings, yet in his life never established close institutional affiliations. Through his many students and descendants, his lineage eventually spread all over the world and his revealed treasure teaching continue to be widely practiced.  Dudjom Jikdrel Yeshe Dorje is considered his reincarnation.

Dudul Dorje

b.1615 - d.1672

Dudul Dorje was a seventeenth-century treasure revealer whose works are one of the pillars of the lineage of Katok Monastery, along with those of his disciple Longsel Nyingpo. He is considered a previous incarnation of Dudjom Rinpoche.

Dudjom Rinpoche was a towering figure in twentieth-century Tibetan religion—one of the main preservers of the Nyingma tradition in exile and the first Nyingma representative in the exile government. He gave a series of major Nyingma empowerments in the early 1960s and composed the lengthy History of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism in 1964. He was a primary holder of the Dudjom Tersar tradition, based on the revelations of his prior incarnation, Dudjom Lingpa.
