Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche ('jam mgon kong sprul), an important lineage of Karma Kagyu and Shangpa Kagyu masters very closely associated with the Karmapas. The main seat of the Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoches is the retreat center of Tsadra Rinchen Drak (tsa 'dra rin chen brag), which was established by the first Kongtrul, close to the Palpung (dpal spung) monastery of the Situ Rinpoches. Their other main seat in eastern Tibet is Dzongshö Desheg Düpe Phodrang (rdzong shod bde gshegs 'dus pa'i pho drang). Together with his contemporaries Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa, Paltrul Rinpoche and Ju Mipham, he was one of the leading figures in the 19th-century Rime- or Non-Sectarian movement. The present 4th incarnation was found and recognized in Tibet by the present 17th Karmapa.
