Synopsis: A Drop from the Marvelous Ocean of History, written by Lelung Tuklu Rinpoche XI, the current reincarnation of Lelung Jedrung, chronicles the history of this important lineage.

Using varied Tibetan resources and biographies, Rinpoche begins with the source of the reincarnations, Olkha Jedrung, known as Lelung Pema Zhepai Dorje, who was the first human manifestation of the Buddhist deity Vajrapani, the powerful Lord of Secrets. He is the compiler and protector of the profound Tantras, which are the ultimate vehicle of the Buddha’s teachings. From the origin of the lineage, Rinpoche moves through time until the mid 1900s, tracing the lives of each Lelung reincarnation, beginning with Lhodrak Namkha Gyaltsen, who was born in 1326, and moving through to his predecessor Thubten Lungtok Choekyi Wangchuk, who passed away in 1962.

This wonderful compilation will be a valuable resource about this essential part of Tibetan history.
