Gyalwang Karmapa presents a copy of the Nag-gyal-phag-sum to Khöndong Ratna Vajra Rinpoche



Tergar Monastery, Bodhgaya
9  November, 2014


Khöndong Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, the elder son of Sakya Trizin, head of the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism, visited the Gyalwang Karmapa at Tergar Monastery this morning.

The Gyalwang Karmapa presented two gifts to Rinpoche, a statue of Amitayus Buddha, and a copy of  the Nag-gyal-phag-sum.  A limited edition of this rare  practice text was produced at the behest of the Gyalwang Karmapa for  the 31st Kagyu Monlam in 2012,  as part of the commemoration of the contribution of the Jamgon Kongtrul Lineage.

The author and compiler of this text was the Fifth Shamarpa, Kunchok Yenla. The original was printed in gold ink on black paper. The main subject of the text is a practice to the three protectors Mahakala, Gyalwa Gyatso and Dorje Phagmo, hence the name. As this text was in danger of being lost completely, the intention of the Gyalwang Karmapa was to preserve this precious text for future generations.
