Description About the author Contents
Foreword by the Ninth Kyabgon Traleg Rinpoche:
Gampopa, the peerless physician from Dakpo, who was repeatedly predicted and praised by the Buddha, caused the teachings of the lineage of accomplishment to become widespread in the Himalayan land of Tibet. All his disciples gave rise to the sudden realization of Mahamudra. Among them were five hundred great meditators, of whom the greatest and most famous were the three Khampas. One of these three was the Khampa Saltong Shogom, who achieved the greatest mastery of the channels and winds through the practice of chandali. His rebirth was Nyima Tashi the Birth-Recollector, who devoted his life to silent practice in sealed retreat. He saw the faces of yidams, realized Mahamudra,and thereafter recounted his previous births and prophesied his future ones. He sang vajra songs that are still warm with his blessing. This brief account of his recollections, prophecies of future births, and songs has now been translated into English and published. It is certain that disciples who study it will plant the seed of liberation in their continuums. I therefore rejoice in and am grateful for its publication.

Translator's Introduction:

This book is a translation of a short collection of the songs and teachings of the first Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche, Nyima Tashi. It is not a biography in the usual sense of the word, and in fact little is known about Nyima Tashi's life. He is said to have lived at the time of Chodrak Gyamtso, the seventh Gyalwang Karmapa (1454-1505), who is said to have been his guru.

The Traleg Kyabgons have been principal lineage holders of Thrangu Monastery, a major monastery of the Karma Kagyu tradition in Eastern Tibet, since the sixteenth century. Before then, in fact before the name Traleg Kyabgon was given to this succession of incarnations, this holy being served the Buddha's teachings and demonstrated the achievement of awakening time after time under many names.

This book tells us about several of these prior incarnations. In essence, the Traleg Kyabgon is the bodhisattva Vajrapani, the personification of the power of all buddhas. The title Kyabgon, Refuge and Protector, is no exaggeration.

Gratitude is due to Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche for his foreword and for his permission to translate this short book, and to Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, the abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery, without whose help and guidance this project, like so many others, would have been impossible.
