The Sixth Throne Holder

The Second Karma Kuchen Rinpoche

Gyurmed Ngedon Tenzin Palzangpo


Gyurmed Ngedon Tenzin
Unchanging Ultimate Doctrine Holder
(Doctrin Upholder of Unchanging Ultimate Truth)

Karma Gyurmed was born in 1794, the thirteenth rabjung year of the Wood Tiger, into the Khanglep family in the Me-chu Gang area of Me Shod. From Karma Lhawang, he received all of the transmissions of kama and terma, as practiced in the Palyul tradition.

Like the majority of the great throne holders of this tradition, much of Karma Gyurmed’s life was spent in solitary retreat. His principal meditational deity was Vajrakilaya (of Duddul Dorje’s revelation) and he often had visions of all seventy-five deities in Vajrakilaya’s assembly. During one pure vision, Padmasambhava came and instructed him to begin the great Dharma Medicine Accomplishment ceremony in the Palyul monastery each year of the sheep. He also began the tradition of performing Guru Chowang’s pure vision tenth day Black Hat Dance at the Palyul monastery.

When Karma Gyurmed actualized realization of the Great Perfection Ati Yoga, each one of his disciples simultaneously developed insights by just hearing the sound of his voice. Without any obstruction, not only could he read the minds of others, he could also comprehend their innermost secret thoughts and needs.

Karma Gyurmed periodically displayed his miraculous powers for the sake of guiding sentient beings. On one such occasion, he focused his mind upon negative forces in order to subdue them and when he threw his vajra, it penetrated through three wall partitions. When he traveled to the hot springs of Tilung, the impression of his footprints remained clearly in the stones.

In 1851, the year of the Iron Pig, on the twelfth day of the fifth month, Karma Gyurmed was fifty-eight years old, when he experienced the presence of the Sugatas in every direction of space. Instructing his disciples to arrange many offerings, on the thirteenth day, he dissolved his mind into the great sphere of truth. His holy body shrank to the size of a cubit, eighteen inches in length, while his complexion remained very fresh and life-like. Astonishing signs, such as unusual cloud formations and rainbows appeared in abundance. His principal heart disciple, Gyatrul Rinpoche, built a temple and a two storey gold and copper stupa to contain the holy body of the second Karma Kuchen Rinpoche, Karma Gyurmed.

The Fifth Throne Holder Karma Lhawang

The Fifth Throne Holder

Karma Lhawang

Powerful God of Action

Karma Lhawang was born into the ancestral heritage of the Vidyadhara Kunzang Sherab. As a child, he awakened his pure awareness Mahayana nature and displayed signs of accomplishment on the path. From his guru, Karma Tashi, he received all the transmissions for the kama lineage of the Maha, Anu and Ati Yogas, the Kagyed and Gongdu Termas and every essential transmission practiced in the Palyul tradition.

Karma Lhawang’s principal interest lay in uncontrived practice. Because of this, he was relatively unconcerned with the details and responsibilities involved in the running of a monastery, caring for a large entourage of disciples and the general maintenance of the surroundings. Spending most of his time in solitary retreat, he continuously manifested miracles, the sign of having mingled his mind with the true nature of appearance. In addition, he possessed the omniscience of unblocked perception into the minds of others. When the enlightened activities of his lifetime were complete, Karma Lhawang passed beyond this world.

The Fourth Throne Holder

The First Karma Kuchen

Karma Tashi


Cho Pal Zangpo
Dharma Glorious Excellent
(Dharma of Glorious Excellent)

In 1728, the twelfth rabjung year of the Earth Monkey, Karma Tashi was born into the ancestral heritage of Kunzang Sherab, in the town of Ahchog.

As Drubwang Pedma Norbu’s closest heart disciple, he received all of the ocean-like empowerments and teachings on the Non-Dual Great Seal Mahamudra-Great Perfection Ati Yoga and Nam Cho Buddha in the Palm of the Hand. He was enthroned by Drubwang Pedma Norbu, the thirteenth Karmapa Duddul Dorje and the tenth Sharmapa Chodrup Gyatso, as the fourth throne holder of the Palyul tradition.

During the war between China and the King of Gyarong, Tsenlha Rabten, Karma Tashi was invited to China . King Tsenlha Rabten’s guru was a powerful Bonpo lama and by the power of black magic, this Bonpo lama caused a storm of stones to descend upon the Chinese troops. Karma Tashi gazed at the storm of stones and suddenly the storm was reversed. For the sake of protecting the Chinese soldiers, Karma Tashi produced many special protection cords which were so potent that they shook with energy. Not a single soldier was harmed after receiving the cords, which protected both body and mind from the fear of weapons. King Rabten of Gyarong and his Bonpo priest lost the war and, by the force of karmic results, the flag of China flew victorious in all directions. The Chinese Emperor, Chan Lung, was overwhelmed with faith and gratitude and authorized Karma Tashi as the royal guru of China and bestowed the title Tai Shree upon him.

At the age of sixty-three Karma Tashi’s enlightened activities were complete and he perfected his mind in the great sphere of truth. The stupa containing his precious bone relics was place inside the temple of Palyul monastery.

The Third Throne Holder

The First Drubwang Pedma Norbu Rinpoche


Drubwang Pedma Norbu
Powerful Accomplishment Lotus Jewel
(Lotus Jewel of Powerful Accomplishment)

The first Drubwang Pedma Norbu Rinpoche was born in 1679, the eleventh rabjung year of the Earth Sheep, in Chagril. Pedma Norbu was an emanation of the great Pandit Vimalamitra and the Vidyadhara Terton Jatson Nyingpo.

His principle root guru was Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso, from whom he received full ordination and all the transmission of the lineages of Kama and Terma as practiced in the Palyul tradition. He accomplished and perfected the practices of the stages of clear light togyal and confidently realized the view of original purity, trekchod. Because of these accomplishments in practice, Pedma Norbu received the title, Drubwang, meaning Powerful Lord of Accomplishment.

Once Drubwang Pedma Norbu was invited by the dharma King of Dege, Tenpa Tsering, to visit and bless his palace. During the visit, Drubwang Pedma Norbu said he would perform the Vajrakilaya lama dance, from the Sakya tradition. Although unfamiliar with this tradition having never practiced it before, Drubwang Pedma Norbu performed the dance flawlessly and several fortunate observers saw that his feet were not even touching the ground. Simultaneously, Sakya Dagchen Rinpoche, who lived far away in central Tibet , looked toward the east and said, “Today, in the eastern region of Kham, an Arya Bodhisattva is performing the Vajrakilaya lama dance, which will liberate the boundless sentient beings who see or hear of it.”

In 1757, at the age of seventy-nine, the first Drubwang Pedma Norbu Rinpoche dissolved his mind into the great sphere of truth, producing astonishing signs. His sacred body was placed just as it was, inside a large wooden stupa, erected within the innermost chambers of his private quarters.

The Second Throne Holder

Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso


Lhundrup Gyatso
Spontaneously Accomplished Ocean
(Ocean of Spontaneously Accomplishment)

Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso was born in 1660, the eleventh rabjung year of the Iron Rat, in the Seng-gang area of Palyul. As the prophecy indicates, Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso was the reincarnation of Sogpo Lhapal, one of the twenty-five disciples of Guru Padmasambhava. From the Vidyadhara Migyur Dorje, he received all the Nam Cho empowerments, transmission and concealed secret instructions. At the age of sixteen, Lhundrub Gyatso went to Palyul Monastery and remained inseparable from his uncle, the Vidyadhara Kunzang Sherab.

When Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso reached his twenty-first year, by the ripening of past karma and with the blessings of the guru, he recognized his true face to be the emptiness-pure awareness nature of the mind.

After Kunzang Sherab passed away, at the age of fifty-four, he took full charge of the Palyul Monastery.

Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso attracted countless disciples who themselves received experiences such as visions and dreams of the root guru giving empowerments, introductions to the nature of mind and prophecies. Pedma Lhundrub Gyatso had visions of the Three Roots and Dharma Protectors bestowing blessings upon him, and he could easily understand the thoughts in the minds of others. He could pacify any illnesses or demonic force possession by simply focusing his mind on the problem.

In 1727, the year of the Fire Sheep, at the age of sixty-eight, at dawn, on the tenth day of Sagadawa, like a golden statue, he entered into meditative equipoise. In the clear light sphere of the four states of confidence, he dissolved his rupakaya body. At the time of his passing, in the clear sky of the east, loud sounds reverberated and flashes of light streaked the sky. During the cremation, mist turned into rainbows and clouds took on the shape of images, vases and wish-granting trees. The sound of the fire was extremely loud and, in the smoke, the forms of deities and their hand implements could be seen. In his remains, many precious bone relics were found.

The First Throne Holder

Vidhyadhara Kunzang Sherab


Kunzang Sherab was born in 1636, the eleventh rabjung year of the Fire Rat, in the province of Do-Kham in the region of Bubor. The name of the village in which he was born is Ah Chog. As a child, he possessed compassion for all sentient beings and never harmed even the smallest creature. Unlike ordinary children, he awakened his innate primordial awareness at an early age and was gifted with the ability to memorize many prayers. He underwent many hardships while doing his practices, including tying his head up by his hair at night in order to completely abandon sleep. With dedicated enthusiastic perseverance, he was able to actualize realization of the precious oral instruction he received from many great teachers and achieved the signs of true accomplishment on the path.

King Lhachen Jampa Phuntsog and Trichen Sangye Tanpa together built a new monastery and named it Palyul Namgyal Chanchub Choling. The King then sent a formal invitation to the great Vidyadhara Kunzang Sherab to be the head of the new Palyul Monastery. Kunzang Sherab asked his guru, Terton Migyur Dorje, who replied, “According to Guru Padmasambhava’s prophecy, the time has now ripened for you to work for the welfare of sentient beings. You must go to take charge of this monastery and it will become an exhaustless source of dharma, propagating the Nyingmapa Doctrine.”

In 1665, the eleventh rabjung year of the Wood Snake, Kunzang Sherab was in his thirtieth year when he arrived at the new Palyul Monastery to assume his position. He skillfully cared for and guided the sentient beings that met him. A great number of his disciples actualized signs of accomplishment through their meditative experience. Several disciples retreated to uncertain places to accomplish and actualized the Great Perfection tradition of transferring from this world. It is known that several of these disciples actually accomplished the rainbow light body.

In 1699, on the fifth day of the year of the Earth Rabbit, at the age of sixty-four, after partaking of his midday meal, Kunzang Sherab dissolved the rupakaya (form body) into the great sphere of truth. The moment he passed away, the weather became unseasonably warm and sprouts and buds suddenly bloomed. His principal disciples, along with three thousand monks, performed extensive offering prayers in his honor. During this time, the majority of disciples experienced unceasing clear light awareness. While his body was being cremated, celestial clouds mingled with rainbows to fill the pristine sky. A self originating syllable AH became embossed on his skull and many images and precious bone relics were observed. A stupa, one story high, made of stone and mud and covered with gold, was erected to contain his precious relics, as well as the Longsal Term

Mahasiddha Karma Chagmed Rinpoche


Karma Chagmed Rinpoche was born in 1613, the tenth Tibetan rabjung year. He was born in the province Nyomtod region of Zalmo Gang. At the moment he was born, his father, the Mahasiddha Pedma Wangdrag, bestowed Terton Ratna Lingpa’s Tsegug and Tsepag Sangdu-kyi Torwang upon the infant. His father then named him Wangdrag Sung (Powerful Speech) because he had been introduced to the dharma, and especially Ratna Lingpa’s revelations, at the moment he entered into the world.

As a child, the young Wangdrag Sung would regularly see gods, spirits and non-human entities. While at play, he would perform various sadhanas and create materials used in dharma ceremonies. At the age of six, his father taught him reading and writing, which he learned without any difficulty and within a very short time, he was reading Milarepa’s One Hundred Thousand Songs. On one occasion, while singing verses from Milarepa’s songs, he sat in full lotus posture and silencing the eight states of cognition, entered into peaceful abiding meditation for an extended period of time.

When he was eleven years old, Wangdrag Sung once again met with his karmic guru of many past lifetimes, the great hidden yogi, Prawashara, from whom Wangdrag received many important empowerments and transmissions. It was during this time that he resolved to become a powerful tantric adept. With this strong determination, from age eleven to nineteen he wandered in the charnel grounds, accomplishing the meditational deity, gathering the dharma protectors as his servants and suppressing the four demons and harm-doers. It was after this that Wangdrag Sung began his accomplishment practices with Kundril Yidshin Norbu practice and then Gur Drag, Damchen, De Gon Trelmai Gonpa, TadrinNaga Lu Dul and others. Through the intensity of his enthusiastic perseverance, he received true signs of accomplishment for each of the deities he practiced. Maintaining strict retreat, Wangdrag Sung never allowed the warmth to leave his meditation seat and, in order to avoid sleep, he placed his cushion on a small stool where he was forced to sit up during the night.

When he was nineteen years old, he took gelong ordination from the great Khenpo Palden Garwang Chokyi Wangchuk Choglei Namgyal, receiving the name Karma Chagmed.

Karma Chagmed often entered into retreat at least one or two months of each year to accumulate root and accomplishment mantras. Of the Three Roots and dharma protectors there was not a single mantra he had not accomplished. He received many auspicious visions, dreams, and signs of accomplishment with Samantabhadra, Padmasambhava and various primordial wisdom deities exactly in accordance with the scriptures.

At the age of thirty-seven, in the year of the Bird, Karma Chagmed began a strict thirteen year retreat, persevering in the practice of Avalokiteshvara, Gyalwa Gyatso and the Mahamudra. Between those sessions he occasionally gave empowerments and commentaries to those fortunate and persistent disciples through a hole in the wall of his retreat house.

At the age of fifty, during the year of the Dog, his retreat came to an end. Thereafter, wherever he performed the great accomplishment ceremonies of the Thugchen Sangdu, Lama Gongdu and others, those present would see Avalokiteshvara, smell sweet smells and witness various rainbow-like pitched tents appearing in space.

When Karma Chagmed was sixty-six, in the western year of 1678, and the eleventh rabjung year of the Earth Horse, he spoke of changing realms. His disciples made persistent requests for him to remain firm and he actually promised to return to this realm on the auspicious days of the waxing and waning moon. On the first day of the sixth month of that year, with astonishing signs, he condensed his mind into the heart of Buddha Amitabha.

During the cremation ceremony, white clouds in the shape of the eight auspicious symbols appeared in the sky and various rainbows, like pitched tents, were witnessed by everyone present. Karma Chagmed’s brain, heart and tongue remained untouched by the fire and clear images of Chemchod Heruka, Gurdrag, Drolod and the syllable AH appeared in his organs. In his precious bone relics, the eight auspicious symbols were embossed with images of Avalokiteshvara, Dechog and Phagmo.

The Great Treasure Revealer

The Great Vidyadhara Migyur Dorje

Just as Lord Buddha Shakyamuni was born without harming his mother or causing her even the slightest bit of pain, the Vidyadhara Migyur Dorje was painlessly born on the seventh day of the ninth month of the Wood Bird Year (1645). His right hand was marked by an extraordinary blue mole, symbolizing the single-essential nature of the Dharmakaya.

Unlike other children, as a small child he always made dharma hand gestures such as the lotus-circle mudra and threatening mudra, pressing his palms together at his heart and so forth. In addition, to the astonishment of everyone, he did secret yogic exercises.

One day he had a vision of Guru Loden Chogsed, one of the eight manifestations of Padmasambhava, and through gesture transmission, he understood how to read and write. When he was seven years old, in a state of pure vision, many Primordial Wisdom Dakinis told him of the importance of relying upon a guru. Instantly, without any obscuration he had a vision of the great scholar and siddha, Raga Ah Syei (Chagmed Rinpoche), who was in solitary retreat, and an intense desire arose to be in his presence.

In the year of the Wood Horse, on the eighth day of the ninth month, when Migyur Dorje was ten years old, he finally met, with the assistance of the dharma protectors, the great Chagmed Rinpoche. Chagmed Rinpoche gave him a purification blessing of Nam Jom and Dor Sem and carefully examined all of Migyur Dorje’s attributes. He found that he possessed all of the signs and marks of an unmistakable manifestation of Padmasambhava.

In his eleventh year, the year of the Wood Sheep, on the ninth day of the first month, Migyur Dorje entered into retreat with the Mahasiddha Chagmed Rinpoche. While practicing Terton Ratna Lingpa’s Tsedrub Sangdu and accomplishing the extensive mandala, he received continual visions of Buddha Amitayus, Padmasambhava, Red Hayagriva, the sixteen Arhats, Amitabha, Avalokiteshvara and many others meditational deities. The signs of his accomplishment of the practice arose when he stopped an eclipse of the moon by holding his vital air. Unobstructedly, he was able to know what was in the minds of others. He recalled hundreds of thousands of aeons of time and spoke specifically of each of the Buddhas who had come, their names, where they traveled and taught, their parent’s names, their activities, their difficulties and their accomplishments.

By the fruit of good virtues and merits, Migyur Dorje had a vision of the Primordial Dharmakaya Buddha. Through a sign, he gave Migyur Dorje the empowerment called Tsewang Dudtsi Gegsel. Then Avalokiteshvara appeared and, according to the tradition of Thugje Chenpo Gye-u, gave Migyur Dorje extensive empowerments. Amitabha gave him the empowerment and transmission of Drubtab Gyatso, which include some forty deities. Then Padmasambhava directly transmitted the four empowerments. In addition, the primordial wisdom and wordly dharma protectors transmitted each of their individual sadhanas and authorization empowerments. All of these were collected into thirteen great volumes called Nam Cho (Space Treasures). Then Migyur Dorje practiced, fully accomplished and realized each of these secret treasures.

Although Terton Migyur Dorje was destined to reveal earth termas, the merit of sentient beings was deficient and it was due to this that his presence in this world was cut short. In 1667, the year of the Fire Sheep, he was in his twenty-third year and while staying in a sacred place in Mugsang, he began to show signs of illness. As the third month approached, his illness grew worse and he was forced to stop giving all dharma transmissions. On the eleventh day of that month, he prayed to the meditational deities and offered many dedicational prayers. On the fourteenth day, he had a vision of all eight Herukas and their accomplishment mandalas. On the morning of the fifteenth day, he beheld the three root-peaceful and wrathful assemblies of deities and assuming the vajra asana posture he entered into meditative equipoise. On the evening of the sixteenth day, while counting mantras on his prayers beads, he passed into the empty sphere of truth and remained sitting upright in meditative equipoise for three days.

During the cremation ceremony, astonishing signs were witnessed by all. Rainbows appeared like pitched tents in a pristine clear sky.  Migyur Dorje’s heart and tongue remained intact in the fire, so that future disciples could accumulate merit. His bone relics were marked with the vowels and consonants of the Tibetan language. These precious remains of Terton Migyur Dorje’s body were placed inside numerous one-storey high golden stupas. These great stupas became the objects of refuge and circumambulation for humans and spirits in order for them to accumulate merit.
