Precious Teachings

H.H. Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok

Founder of Larung Gar Buddhist Academy

བླ་རུང་ལྔ་རིག་ནང་བསྟན་སློབ་གླིང་།

H.H. Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok (1933-2004) was an incarnation of Tertön Sogyal Lerab Lingpa and an emanation of Mipham Rinpoche. He is the founder of the Centre for the Five Traditional Sciences and Higher Buddhist Studies near Serthar known as Larung Gar and is revered as a one of the great Dzogchen masters of modern times. His writings and teachings are very well-known mostly in China and Tibet.

However in the West, even though Khenpo visited many Buddhist centres in Europe and North America in the early 1990’s, Jigme Phuntsok’s direct teachings are not as widely known as they could be to most lay Buddhist practitioners or even to those with a general interest in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and practice. This is in part because Khenpo’s four volumes of writings are accessible only in the original Tibetan and more recently in Chinese translations.
