Subtitle: : Concise Biography of the Great Terton Pedgyal LIngpa, An Emanation of Nupchen Sangye Yeshe
Author: Gochen Tulku Sanak* Rinpoche. (*Sanak is sometimes spelled "Sang-Ngag")
Translated into English by Chokyi Nyima (Richard Barron)

Pedgyal Lingpa (1924 -1988) was a contemporary tertön from Tibet who settled later in Bhutan. He became a student of Dudjom Rinpoche and was also very close to Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche. He was born in Golok Serta, of Eastern Tibet, among the clan of Chok tsang of the Mukpo clan, and recognized as an incarnation of Nupchen Sangye Yeshe. Oral stories recount that from childhood he showed extraordinary abilities and could perform all of the various tantric rituals. 

Pedgyal Lingpa left Tibet with the diaspora and spent time first in Pemakö, India and then later settled and lived mainly in Bhutan, where most of his students resided. As most of his gongter were revealed in Tibet, almost all of the texts were lost during the political events in the 1960’s. However, one of the more famous termas of his is the Kusum Gongdu, the cycle known as the ‘Union of Enlightened Intent of the Three Kayas’, revealed in Pemakö in 1960.

The inner sadhana of this cycle is the Pema Sangwai Thigle, aka the Red Vajrasattva practice, which is widely undertaken annually as a drubchen within the sangha of Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche both in Northern America and Brazil.
