Gyalwang Drukpa


The Twelfth Drukpa is known as the Great Dragon in Tibet for his spiritual attainment and marvellous activities throughout twelve lifetimes. In His Music he speaks plainly and simply about life in the modern world, just a chat with no zigzags, springing from his heart of wisdom. The Gyalwang Drukpa is the head of the Dongyud Pelden Drukpa school, which is part of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, also known as the Northern Drukpa. His Holiness Jigme Pema Wangchen is the twelfth and present incarnation of the Gyalwang Drukpa. Read more on Last.fm
The Twelfth Drukpa is known as the Great Dragon in Tibet for his spiritual attainment and marvellous activities throughout twelve lifetimes. In His Music he speaks plainly and simply about life in the modern world, just a chat with no zigzags, springing from his heart of wisdom. The Gyalwang Drukpa is the head of the Dongyud Pelden Drukpa school, which is part of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, also known as the Northern Drukpa. His Holiness Jigme Pema Wangchen is the twelfth and present incarnation of the Gyalwang Drukpa. The Drukpa Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism stems directly from the primordial Buddha Vajradhara (Dorje Chang in Tibetan) and descends through an unbroken line of enlightened Masters. The early founders of the lineage include the great teachers Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa, Milarepa, Gampopa, Rechungpa, Phagmo Drupa and Lingchen Repa. Lingchen Repa was the guru of the first Gyalwang Drukpa, Tsangpa Gyare. Tsangpa Gyare was recognized as the Buddha of Compassion, (Tibetan Chenrezig, Sanskrit Avalokiteshvara), in human form, as well as an incarnation of the first Buddhist King of Tibet, Songsten Gampo, the great sage Naropa and Milarepa's son-like disciple Gampopa. The Drukpa order spread throughout Tibet, Ladakh, Northern India and Bhutan, and is renowned for the pure qualities of its practitioners and the numerous yogis who have attained enlightenment.

His Holiness the present Gyalwang Drukpa, is the twelfth reincarnation of the supreme head of this tradition. Following the death of fourth Gyalwang Drukpa, Pema Karpo, there were two reincarnations, as he prophesized. One, Pagsam Wangpo, remained in Central Tibet with the patronage of the King of Tsang. The other, Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, went to Bhutan after seeing in vision the deity Mahakala offering him the Kingdom. In Bhutan, the Drukpa lineage is now the official religious order of the state.

Ever since Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal appointed Pekar Jungne as the first Je Khenpo, the spiritual head of all monasteries in Bhutan, the successive Je Khenpos have acted as the Spiritual Regents of Bhutan.
