The Treasury of Lives

The Orgyen Nyendrub (o rgyan bsnyan sgrub) is a tantric tradition that was included by Jamgon Kongtrul in his “Eight Chariots of the Practice Lineage” doxography, but which never developed a distinct institutional identity. It is also known as the Dorje Sumgyi Nyendrub (rdo rje gsum gyi bsnyen grub). Kongtrul credited its origin to the thirteenth century when Orgyenpa Rinchen Pel, a disciple of the Drukpa Kagyu Lama Gotsangpa Gonpo Dorje and of the Second Karmapa, Karma Pakshi. Orgyenpa traveled twice to India, first in the north to Oḍḍiyāna, Kashmir and Ladakh, and then later to Vajrāsana. He passed on his teaching to disciples in the Drukpa and Karma Kagyu tradition.
