Yangti Nagpo 1.; and Dungtso Repa;: The Yanti Nagpo, the "Single Golden Syllable of the Black Quintessence" (yang ti nag po gser gyi 'bru bcig), a cycle of teachings belonging to the yang ti class of Ati Yoga. It contains practices upon the Hundred and Peaceful and Wrathful Deities and the Great Perfection, with some pith instructions upon the practice of meditation in complete darkness. It is a terma found by the later Dungtso Repa (dung mtsho ras pa phyi ma), 15th century, in the Lake Mandal Nagpo in Gampo (sgam po mtsho man dal nag po). He was an emanation of Yeshe Tsogyal and Vairochana, and the immediate reincarnation of the first Dungtso Repa (dung mtsho ras pa snga ma) who himself was a rebirth of Yeshe Dorje (ye shes rdo rje), a disciple of Gampopa.(if Yeshe Dorje is Tsangpa Gyare, then disciple of Lingje Repa, not Gampopa???) Both Yeshe Dorje and the first Dungtso Repa are among the great saints who opened the doors of the hidden land of Tsari. [RY]

Yangti Nagpo 2. The first Dungtso Repa revealed some termas from the Lake Mandal Nagpo too, terma which had been concealed by Gampopa. These include the sems khrid yid bzhin nor bu and 'pho ba grong 'jug revealed in 1329. Dungtso Repa's name came from the fact that he meditated near the Ka-la Dungtsho Lake in the sacred hidden land of Tsari. One of the main disciple of the the first Dungtso Repa was Khandro Kunga Bumpa; (mkha 'gro ma kun dga' bum pa) (an emanation of Yeshey Tsogyal of whom Terchen Chogyur Lingpa received some teachings in vision, see Rinchen Terdzö ***) [who, being one of the few male mkha 'gro figures in Tibet; born the son of Gtsang-pa Rdo-rje-dbyang-phyud and Lha-skyid-dpal-'dzom] himself became teacher of the later Dungtso Repa, to whom he first gave the transmission of his own terma, the Dzogchen Magyu Sangwa (rdzogs chen ma rgyud gsang ba), according to Vajra Yogini's prophecy. [RY]

Yangti Nagpo 3. The first Dungtso Repa is usually associated to the Kagyu lineage and the later Dungtso Repa to the Nyingma lineage. The succesive reimbodiments of Dza Trulshig Rinpoche are considered to be emanations of Dungtso Repa. (based on Gene Smith' preface to the publication of the Yanti Nagpo, the historic of the terma itself, Khetsun Sangpo's biography and other oral sources). 2) The teachings of the Yangti Nagpo were given by Guru Rinpoche to the King Trisong deutsen, Yeshey Tsogyal and Verotsana. Guru Rinpoche predicted that an emanation of Vero would find the ter. Accordingly, out of the Three Roots of the Yanti Nagpo, Duntso Repa found the Yidam section. Later came Chinkar Dony" Dorje; (phying dkar don yod rdo rje), who was a Geshey Larampa of Sera monastery. He had a vision and prediction of Guru Rinpoche related to the discovery of the terma, and took up the yogic life. Everyone despised him and therefore he did not have a great activity. [RY]

Yangti Nagpo 4. He found the Guru section and the dakini section in two different places (one being known as phying dkar sgrub phug). One time as the great teacher Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol; came to the Jharungkhashor stupa in Nepal and was teaching in front of a vast crowd, among the crowd was sitting Chinkar Dony" Dorje with his consort and children, unnoticed by all. At one point Shabkar remained for a while in silence and then said, "There is someone here superior to me. As he was asked of whom he was thus speaking, he pointed out at the beggar, called him, and had him seated next to him. Due to this Chinkar Dony" Dorje became very famous, and thus Shabkar opened the door for his activities for the beings and the spreading of his termas. Shabkar and C.D.Dorje became very close and both the master and disciple of each other. Later on, another cycle of teachings of Chinkar, the Guyang Nyinthig widely spread in Mongolia. Beacause he was refused the consort he had asked for the discovery of the Guru Lhadrup, he could not write it down. [RY]

Yangti Nagpo 5. Soon after the maid who should had been his consort died. The parents felt great regret and called the yogi. He said that he was too late and that the connection had been missed, and added that he could at least guide her in the bardo. He brought her back to life for a few moments and gave her instructions. Following this he put back the shokser as Yangter, in a mask. His re-emanation, the precedent Trulshik Rinpoche, found this shokser again when he came with the former Dzatrul Rinpoche to Nepal in order to perform the consecration of the Jaharungkashor Stupa. He also wrote expanded versions of the other saddhanas of the Three Roots. (told by Trulshik Rinpoche;, Ngawang Chökyi Lodröe, at the occasion of the granting of the empowerment of the Lhadrup of the Yangti Nagpo, at Bois-bas, Longchen Gatsel Ling, France, the 29/06/87) [MR]

Yangti Nagpo, or the Single Golden Syllable of the Black Quintessence (yang ti nag po gser gyi 'bru gcig). This cycle of teachings belonging to the most esoteric section (yang ti) of Ati Yoga. It involves practices upon the Hundred Peaceful and Wrathful Deities, focused on dealing with the stages of the Great Perfection, with some pith instructions for the practice of meditation in complete darkness. The later Dungtso Repa (dung mtsho ras pa phyi ma, see G.Smith (1972), GC, Vol.2, pp.784-6, TN, p.518-9, and Yangti Nagpo Vol.3, p.267), a disciple of the famed dakini Kunga Bum (kun dga' bum), found this terma in a tortoise-shaped rock near the Lake of the Black Mandala (mtsho mandal nag po) also known as Kala Dungtso (ka la dung mtsho). The latter lies across the Kashong Pass (kha shong la, see Fletcher, 1975, and Huber, 1992) near Gampo. The "later" Dungtso Repa is thus called for being the immediate reembodiement of the "earlier" Dungtso Repa (dung mtsho ras pa snga ma, 1267-1329?, see GC, Vol.3, p.30-31 and TN pp. 515-6) who also revealed a terma (the sems khrid yid bzhin nor bu) from Lake Mandal Nagpo. Although the above sources concur consistently, there is a certain amount of confusion between the two Dungtso Repas, since in ND p. 144b for instance, Kunzang Ngedön Long Yang attributes the discovery of the Yangti Nagpo to the first Dungtso Repa, and so do other historians who based their works on ND (for intance, BD, Vol.3 p.424). In his gter ston chos 'byung, pp.65-6, Karma Mingyur Wangyal, too, considers only one Dungtso Repa and attributes to him the termas of both the "earlier" and the "later". [MR-ShabkarNotes]

Yantig - The "doors" of the sacred place of Yantig (yang tig) were opened by the third Dalai Lama, Gyalwa Sonam Gyatso (rgyal ba bsod nams rgya mtsho, 1543-88), who had a vision of Guru Padmasambhava and revealed there a spiritual treasure (gter ma). See AC, vol. II, pp. 70-3. [MR-ShabkarNotes]

yellow paper" text. The original terma texts found concealed in a rock or in the ground are normally written in what is known as dakini script, upon yellow paper. The writing itself may be very short, even a few syllables, that the tertön "the treasure discoverer" has to interpret through his own meditative powers, sometimes writing out very lengthy texts from a short piece of dakini script. As the colour of expansion is yellow, it is said that that is the reason for the original text found being yellow, or even if not, being called a "yellow-paper" text. [Peter Roberts]
