Lerab Lingpa Tertön Sogyal

Lerab Lingpa Tertön Sogyal (1856-1927) was the incarnation of Nanam Dorje Dudjom, a disciple of Padmasambhava. Tertön Sogyal was a prolific tertön, a revealer of spiritual treasures, whose collected revelations fill 20 volumes.

He was a close student of the great masters Nyoshul Lungtok, Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche and Jamgön Kongtrul. His own many disciples included the 13th Dalai Lama, Thubten Gyatso (1876-1933), the Third Dodrupchen, Jikme Tenpe Nyima, and Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö.

It was Jamyang Khyentse who recognised Sogyal Rinpoche as the incarnation of Tertön Sogyal.
