We are excited to announce that the second volume of the Fifth Lelung Rinpoche, Pema Zhepai Dorje, has just been published. Born in 1697, the Fifth Lelung was an heroic figure in the history of the Lelung lineage. He revealed many sacred teachings, wrote numerous manuscripts and built a new monastery in Lelung Valley which became the primary seat of the tradition.
To complete this second book, Lelung Rinpoche travelled to Dharamsala in April 2011. Together with the team from the Lelung Literature Preservation Centre, he carefully reviewed and proofread the draft copy, making the final changes and improvements before its publication. An index was also compiled. The design and printing of the completed volume was done in Delhi.
While the publication of this second book is a significant achievement, additional funds are needed to publish the remaining volumes. Rinpoche expressed his hope that donors can be found: “I hope, in the future, to be able to publish the volumes more quickly, with generous help from supporters. Support has been pledged for the next few volumes, but there are many more texts to be published. There is still a long way to go!”
If you would like to offer support for the continuing work of the Preservation Centre in Dharamsala and the publication of Pema Zhepai Dorje’s remaining manuscripts, please contact our UK Centre.
