     The Eleventh Lelung Jedrung Rinpoche, Tenzin Phuntsok Loden, was born in 1970, and recognized by the Great Fourteenth Dalai Lama (b. 1935) in 1984. He was educated in Drepung Monastic University for thirteen years. He has done years of research in the effort to revive the Lelung Tulku lineage, finding and publishing in Tibetan many of the rare works of his predecessors.

    Here, he presents in English this lovely little book, richly detailing the lives of his past incarnations, showing their coordination with the Dalai Lamas and the Panchen Lamas, in the center of the mainstream Ganden Renaissance movement from around 1400 CE. In these days of great divisions, he holds up to our view an ancient lineage within the true New Kadam or Geluk order that exemplifies the beauty and power of the nonsectarian approach to the Buddha's Dharma as inherited, preserved, studied, practiced, realized, and performed in Tibet through the centuries until today.
    Translated by Tenzin Dorjee


    "What a wonderful little book. The Lelung lineage is one of the most important and interesting in all of Tibet. Tenzin Phuntsok Loden, the 11th Lelung Rinpoche, delights us with the stories and enlightened activities of his illustrious predecessors!"
