Short biography

Terchen Rigdzin Longsal Nyingpo (1625-1692), also known as Longsel Dorje Nyingpo, a famous terton or treasure revealer of Kathok Monastery, whose terma teachings are known by his name. He was one of those responsible for restoring Katok Monastery, which, after four and a half centuries, had fallen into disrepair. He is believed to be an incarnation of Chokro Luyi Gyaltsen, one of the twenty-five close disciples of Padmasambhava who transcribed and helped Guru Padmasambhava conceal terma treasures.
