Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa and the Longchen Nyingthig

Rigzin Jigme Lingpa (1730-1798) further condensed the Nyingthig Yabzhi of Longchenpa into a cycle of termas called the Longchen Nyingthig, or "Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse". The Nyingthig Yabshi and the Longchen Nyingthig are known, respectively, as the earlier and later "heart essence." The Longchen Nyingthig became both the foundation of the main Dzogchen teachings in the contemporary period and of the Rime’ movement.

Jigme Lingpa's teaching lineage flourished in Kham in eastern Tibet, and after his death three important teachers were recognised as being his emanations: Do Khyentse (1800?-1859?), Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, (1820-1892) and Patrul Rinpoche, (1808-1887), all of whom were central to the Rime’ movement.

H.H. Chatral Rinpoche received the Longchen Nyingthg from Kathok Khenpo Ngawang Palzang, and transmitted it to the Ven. Ralo Rinpoche.

The Longchen Nying-thig tradition is perhaps most well known for its cycle of nyingthig, or innermost essence teachings of Atiyoga, the Great Perfection: Dzogchen.

These teachings became the profound heart core of the Longchen Nying-thig lineage, which is characterized even today by its reliance
on unwavering devotion to the Vajra Guru as the primary means of realizing the absolute truth.

The Longchen Nying-thig remains even today as one of the most widely practiced of the numerous existent Nyingma lineages.  It is practiced by many masters and monasteries of all four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, primarily due to its profound and essential nature.
