Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo

Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo ('jam dbyangs mkhyen brtse'i dbang po)(1820 - 1892)


A great master of the last century. He was the last of the Five Great Tertons and was Vimalamitraregarded as the combined reincarnation of Vimalamitra and King Trisong Deutsen. He became the master and teacher of all the Buddhist schools of Tibet and the founder of the Rimey movement. There are ten volumes of his works in addition to his termas. Jamyang means 'Manjushri, gentle melodiousness,' Khyentse Wangpo means 'Lord of loving wisdom.'

Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo was one of the greatest lamas of the last century, and one of the most important tertons. He was considered to be a body emanation of Jigme Lingpa.

During a thirteen year period he received all of the existing teachings of the various lineages from some 150 lamas. During that time he studied about 700 works. Dilgo Khyentse, who is one of his reincarnations, said that Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo's main practice was that of Guru Yoga. In the Autobiography of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo it is written that he realized the true nature of mind during his Ngondro practice.

   Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo was heavily involved in the development of the non-sectarian Rimey-movement. During that time many lineages and practices were under the threat of extinction. The goal of the Rime movement was for the practitioner to attain complete mastery of the teachings of all the lineages, so as to then be able to give each of his students the precise teaching to fit their individual needs.

"Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo was an emanation of both Vimalamitra as well as Trisong Deutsen. It was predicted that Trisong Deutsen would take thirteen incarnations exclusively as tertons and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo was the 13th incarnation. He is also regarded as an emanation of the master Jigmey Lingpa."
