Brief bio of Prince Murub Tseypo[edit]

The second prince was known variously under the names Yeshe Rölpa Tsal, Murub Tseypo or Mutri Tseypo. An untitled and unpublished manuscript written by His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche explaining the Sheldam Nyingjang (Commentary on the Essence Manual of Instructions) contains some background information on this prince:
"The single father King Trisong Deutsen had three sons of which the middle one was called Murub Tseypo, a lord of the tenth bhumi who in actuality and visibly had achieved the noble qualities of abandonment and realization. Also known as the Prince Translator, he reached perfection in learning. At the end, his bodily form vanished into the body of light and he attained the supreme accomplishment of perceiving the primordial wakefulness. It is his magical reincarnation who appeared during this age of degeneration, renowned worldwide under the title Orgyen Chokgyur Dechen Shikpo Lingpa, the universal ruler over an ocean of accomplished revealers of Dharma treasures."
