At the outset of the project, the Drala Jong Blog published an article about His Holiness Dud’jom Rinpoche and his instructions to Ngak’chang Rinpoche.

In 1977 His Holiness Dud’jom Rinpoche gave direction to Ngak’chang Chögyam Rinpoche that he must work to preserve the gendun karpo in the West.

Prior to his passing in 1988, Dud’jom Rinpoche was the head of the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and every Nyingma Lama of the mid-late 20th Century revered him as their teacher. He gave the name ‘Sang-ngak-chö-dzong’ (‘secret fortress of mantra’) as an inspiration for this accomplishment of his vision.

The Drala Jong appeal is the next step in our commitment to Dud’jom Rinpoche to see the gendun karpo permanently established in the West.
