THE NINE INCARNATIONS OF THE THRANGU TULKUS

Taken from the book The Glory of the Dharma, a limited edition published by Thrangu Monastery Canada, these are brief accounts of the lives and deeds of the incarnations of the Thrangu Tulkus written by the 9th Thrangu Rinpoche by request. They are based on oral and written histories with some points taken from other life stories. Translation to English is by David Karma Choephel.
