The Collected Writings
of Dza Patrul Rinpoche
PUBLICATION (IN TIBETAN) OF THE COLLECTED WRITINGS OF PATRUL JIGME CHÖKYI WANGPO PRESENTED IN NINE VOLUMES AS AN ORNAMENT INSPIRED BY THE NINE GRADUAL VEHICLES
Several years ago, Dzogchen Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche took on the overall responsibility of the Collected Writings of Patrul Rinpoche Jigme Chökyi Wangpo and provided all the favourable conditions to complete its publication.
SOURCE AND REVIEW
The main guide to whom enquiries were made is Kyabje Zenkar Rinpoche who accepted this exclusive responsibility in 2015.
The main source of Patrul Rinpoche’s collected writings was the old woodblock printed publication of Dzogchen Shri Singha Dharma University, which was proofread in London. In addition, the different available books were gathered from different places and compiled with many checks and comparisons.
An ultimate proofreading of the final draft then took place in April 2018: while granting the oral transmission principally to Dzogchen Rinpoche Tenzin Lungtok Nyima, along with many Khenpos and Tulkus, Kyabje Zenkar Rinpoche earnestly requested the whole assembly—teacher and students—to correct mistakes.
The editing work was accomplished within a couple of years in Dharma City in Belgium, by Lopön Tsering Gönpo and Lopön Jampa Norgyal, who were guided by Kyabje Zenkar Rinpoche, and applied all the recommendations of Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche. All the computer-related aspects of the project were managed by Dechen Namdröl.
PARTICULARITIES OF THIS PUBLICATION
The writings are arranged according to the table of contents defined by Mipham Rinpoche, omniscient in all the Dharma sections and endowed with extraordinary qualities. Kyabje Zenkar Rinpoche examined it twice and proposed corrections, so that the writings are now perfectly assembled without mixing their order.
The outline writings are completed with their root text.
Texts that were not included in Mipham’s table of contents and that could be recovered have been combined into additional volumes.
Notes taken by direct disciples are also added to this Collection of Writings.
These particularities illustrate that one can fully rely on this new publication of Patrul Rinpoche’s Collection of Writings in nine volumes, which is particularly outstanding compared to former publications.
