===Short Biography===
 
'''Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa, Khyentse Ozer''' (1730-1798), was regarded as an incarnation of both [[King Trisong Deutsen]] and [[Vimalamitra]]. His most enduring contributions to the Tibetan tradition are his revealed teachings, the [[Longchen Nyingthig]], the diverse body of literature he composed, and the amazing lineage of realized masters that have followed in his wake, which includes [[Patrul Rinpoche]], [[Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje]] and [[Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo]].
 
  
Unlike many masters of the Tibetan tradition that went on to compose influential philosophical treatises, Jigme Lingpa did not receive extensive educational training. Neither was he a recognized reincarnation, a [[tulku]]. Instead, his great realization came directly through practice. In particular, it came from a series of three visions he had of the great master [[Longchenpa]] while in retreat at the [[Samye Chimpu]]. In these visions, Jigme Lingpa received the entire transmission of [[Longchen Rabjam]]'s works, both their words and meanings, and his mind eventually merged completely with that of [[Longchenpa]]'s.

Mipham is a word and a name used often throughout Tibetan history, as such it is common that you not find who or what your looking for under such a general search as "Mipham". Here is the list of definitions for the RY2003 Dictionary and then a list of the more famous figures that were named Mipham.
 
 
Following his pivotal retreat at [[Samye Chimpu]], Jigme Lingpa went on to found one of the most influential lineages in the [[Nyingma]] tradition. In the centuries since his passing, the inheritors of the [[Longchen Nyingthig]] have proven to be some of the greatest scholars, meditation masters and realized yogis in recent history. Many of his literary works, particularly the ''[[Treasury of Precious Qualities]]'' ([[yon tan mdzod]]), continue to be widely studied in [[Nyingma]] educational institutions, while his works on tantric practice, such as the famed [[yeshe lama]], are among the most commonly taught practice manuals.
 
 
 
'''Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa''' (1729-1798) was considered to be an emanation of the great [[pandita]] [[Vimalamitra]], of [[King Trisong Detsen]], of [[Longchen Rabjam]] (13O8-1363), of [[Ngari Panchen Pema Wangyal]] (1487-1542), and of many other sages. He was also the immediate reembodiment of [[Choje Lingpa]], also known as [[Orgyen Rogje Lingpa]] (1682-1725). [RY]
