Rgod-tshang-pa, Works

Included here are title lists from several different publications of Rgod tshang pa's works, as well as part of a biography. Rgod tshang pa Mgon po rdo rje was a disciple of Gtsang pa Rgya ras pa (who might be considered the founder of the 'Brug pa Bka' brgyud pa, although that honor may belong to his own teacher Gling ras pa). Rgod tshang pa is considered the founder of a special branch of the 'Brug pa called the "Highland 'Brug pa" (Stod 'Brug). His three main disciples were Yang dgon pa, U rgyan pa and Spyil dkar ba. A large and wonderful portrait bronze image of him is in the possession of (and generally is on display at) the Newark Museum in New Jersey. On the basis of the inscription, it seems that this image once belonged to the Rgod-tshang Hermitage, located above Leh, Ladakh. An English-language study of Rgod tshang pa's travels is available in a lengthy article by Giuseppe Tucci, "Travels of Tibetan Pilgrims in the Swat Valley." It has been reprinted in "Opera Minora."

2.1 This text is the scattered statements arranged by BYANG SEMS SHER GZHON, who clarified them for the sake of beings. As we find out later, he was a disciple of Rgod tshang pa, which makes this work rather early. Rgod tshang pa frequently speaks for himself, which means that it must be meant to record his words. (In fact, this work is found in the collected works of Rgod tshang pa; see above)

Vols. 4-5 have different publishing details (and they seem to correspond to vols. 4-5 in the other volumes in content, but not in pagination): In fact, 4 & 5 were published first, but no other volumes from the set could be found to be published. See below. There is supposed to be a general index in vol. 3. This is two different collections that have been put together even though they don't belong together. One of them is in vols. 1-3, the other in vols 4-5.

The biography contained here, on pp. 1-325, has no specific title, but the colophon title is as follows (318.2): Chos rje rgod tshang ba'i stod pa nyi shu rtsa lnga'i sgo gnas stod pa rnam par thar pa yon tan kun bsal zhes bya ba.


The work begins with verses that also contain an outline of the work (the 12 thugs dam / dam bca', etc.). The work as a whole is written as a commentary to these verses.


Near the end is also a useful chronological sketch of Rgod-tshang-pa's life:

This may be compared to the similar passage in Rgod tshang pa Mgon po rdo rje, 1189-1258, The Collected Works of Rgod tshang pa Mgon po rdo rje, the founder of the Upper Tradition (Stod) of the 'Brug pa Dkar brgyud pa, Tango Monastic Community (Thimphu 1981). 5 vols.
