Seeds of Faith
A Concise Biography of the Great Tertön Pedgyal Lingpa, An Emanation of Nupchen Sangye Yeshe
By Gochen Tulku Sangak Rinpoche, Chökyi Nyima (translator)
Pedgyal Lingpa (1924-1988) was a tertön, a modern-day master of the ancient tradition of terma, or revealed teachings, that has its origins in the 8th century CE, during the time of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava in Tibet. In this biography, Gochen Tulku Sangak Rinpoche, himself a personal student of Pedgyal Lingpa, has given us a rich portrait of this remarkable figure, much of it based on oral history not previously committed to writing.
Located in Montana on the 60-acre property of Ewam Sang-ngag Ling in the beautiful and expansive Jocko Valley and dedicated as an International Peace Center, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas supports people in cultivating inner peace and in preserving the ancient culture of Tibet. The mission of the Garden is to provide visitors of all faiths with an opportunity to generate profound merit, to reduce global negativities, and to bring about lasting peace. Through the use of the ancient symbols of Buddhism, the Garden awakens one’s natural inner qualities of joy, wisdom, and compassion.
