Tenpé Wangchuk Dharma Collection

A Translation and Publication Project

Tenpé Wangchuk Rinpoche's significance in Buddhism

The works of Tenpé Wangchuk Rinpoche, just like the teachings of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, completely cover the entire Buddhism of Sutrayana and Vajrayana and view different teachings in terms of nine vehicles. Rinpoche is a spiritually realized master, holding three Dharma lineages: Dzogchen Longchen Nyingtik, Palyul Namcho and Dudjom Tersar. His word is known for its beauty, fluency and clear logic. In Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche has a special significance in giving Dzogchen (The Great Perfection) teaching. Rinpoche revived two large monasteries: the Khangsar Taklung Monastery and Payak Monastery, and educated thousands of qualified monks. Most importantly, Rinpoche’s teaching included the spiritual nutrition of all the great masters in the past and expounded a complete Buddhist path of different stages. For more details about the dharma works by Tenpé Wangchuk, see this flyer.

Entrusted by Tsultrim Zangpo Rinpoche, the abbot of Taklung Monastery, Yingrik Drubpa Rinpoche has been wishing to translate the five volumes of “Dharma Collection of Tenpé Wangchuk” into English or Chinese to benefit a wider audience and more Buddhist practitioners. Now, with enough blessing, the translation project has been kindly undertaken by the Padmakara Translation Group in France.
