The 2 Jigme Phuntsoks and Tare Lhamo
( Namkha Lingpa and Consort flanking Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok )
ORGYEN NAMKHA LINGPA
Namkha Lingpa is one of the main disciples of the late Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, who is Himself, one of the main Nyingma Teachers of the present Dalai Lama.
[ For article on Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, see CASonline's Archives at http://www.casotac.
Holding Namkhha Lingpa in the highest regards, Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok offered His Body / Speech and Mind to Namkha Lingpa and offering His very own name to Namkha Lingpa, who is henceforth known also as Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche !!
The present Sakya Trizin, Palyul Tulku Karma Chagmed, Khenpo Munsel and many of the greatest Masters of Tibet have composed Long-life Prayers to Namkha Lingpa Jigme Phuntsok.
Rinpoche's activities are inconceivable both on the worldly and transcendent levels: spontaneous renunciation of negative acts by hunters, courageous and selfless compassion for protection of the Teachings and other beings in the tumultous Cultural Revolution and of course in the transcendent levels: the commitment to Rinpoche by Palden Lhamo the Chief Protectress of Tibet, the untold miracles of healing, clairvoyance and other inconceivable activities.
Nyanlung Rinpoche ( Namkha Lingpa Jigme Phuntsok is also known by this name as He is the Head of Nyanlung Thekchen Monastery ) is also mentioned in the holy prophecies of the late Dudjom Rinpoche and Dodrupchen Rinpoche.
( For the new Tibetan Buddhists, at the time when Guru Padmasambhava brought the holy Dharma into Tibet, He concealed many "Treasure Teachings" for latter generations because conditions then were not ripe for teaching or propagation of these teachings.

The Eight Mahayana Precepts
Namkha Lingpa ( or Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche !! ) has, in addition, advised all students to engage in practice of the Eight Mahayana Precepts from 17 February to 17 March 2007. Thousands of His students in Tibet, too, will also be keeping these Eight Precepts during this period.
Rinpoche, being informed by our friend that Singapore is no mountain range of holy retreat centres, has offered His compassionate permission to students taking the precepts to carry on their work, teaching, dealing with clients and so on, whilst keeping the precepts but no lying or non-virtuous activities.
Rinpoche wanted to inform all students that taking these precepts during his period will be extremely meritorious yielding at least "one hundred thousand fold" the merit more than as with one keeping the precepts alone.
To join in the above highly meritorious project, please email PD directly at ace13938@163.
so that he could consolidate and inform Rinpoche --
