This fantastic, outrageous, and beautiful biography of the First Yongey Mingyur Dorje, written down by Je Tukyi Dorje & Surmang Tendzin Rinpoche, describes the visionary inner life of this great treasure revealer showing us wisdom, kindness, and ability.


Translator's Introduction

I
n all the religions of this world there have appeared extraordinary individuals who have embodied the wisdom and goodness of their tradition while transcending the status quo of its institutions. These holy men and women capture our hearts in a special way because their lives challenge us to think 'out of the box' of our often sleepy and lackluster faith. Their every deed and word awakens what is best within each of us.

Yongey Mingyur Dorje Drakpo Nuden Tsal, who was born in 1628, was such a person. This account of his deeds and words is both touching and humorous, both inspiring and shocking. As we read about his life, we are pushed beyond the reach of understanding and into the undiscovered country of awakened being. Although we cannot become like Mingyur Dorje just by reading about his life, our understanding of awakening could be forever changed by his blessing.

This book includes a brief biography of Mingyur Dorje by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great, extracted from his Lives of the Hundred Treasure-Revealers, and the biography of Mingyur Dorje called Chariot of the Fortunate. The latter was begun by Dzigar Tukyi Dorje, and completed by Surmang Tendzin Rinpoche.

Chariot of the Fortunate is largely based upon oral traditions about the life of its subject. It is therefore free from the rigid organization that characterizes many Tibetan biographies. Reading it often feels like being spoken to by the writers, both because of its colloquial language and because of its informal structure. Nevertheless, it tells us a great deal about Mingyur Dorje, and perhaps something about ourselves. ------Yeshe Gyamtso
