Patrul Rinpoche has made the preservation, translation and distribution of the inestimable treasures of Dharma one of his greatest priorities. To allow the rain of blessings from these sacred words to touch all beings, he officially founded the Sambhota Translation Group in 2010, after more than a decade of work. The group is an integral part of the non-profit association Dzogchen Gelek Palbar Ling. The translations are published by the Wisdom Treasury publishing house.

Longchen Nyingthik

The STG also works on translating the Longchen Nyingthik, which is an integral part of the Dzogchen teachings or teachings on “Great Perfection”. In reality, it is a mind treasure in 14 volumes revealed by Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa (1730–1798). These teachings have been preserved and mastered by many great beings, and in particular in Rudam (Dzogchen), the place of origin of our project directors. Follow this link to discover more about the origins of the Longchen Nyingthik.

 

As Lopön Tsering Gönpo stated:

“There are 14 volumes of scripture of the Longchen Nyingthik that we have obtained today; in addition to that, we have to search for more that may exist which we have not yet obtained. We have seen that only a few volumes from the teachings of the omniscient Longchen Rabjam and the vidyadhara Jigme Lingpa – the Dharma-cycle of the Longchen Nyingthik – have been translated. Out of these, most remain untranslated.

Following the advice of his eminence Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche, for the benefit of the great learned ones who have studied numerous disciplines and in particular, for the benefit of all sentient beings—young, old, men, women—who have a great interest in the Buddhist view, meditation, action and result, the Sambhota Translation Group has decided to translate these volumes and has the sincere and strong hope that while looking at these books, their wishes will be fulfilled. Furthermore, we welcome and accept any expert wishing to work on these translations. If the scripture volumes mentioned above have already been translated into English or are being translated, please contact us promptly via the following address info@sambhota-translation.org. We, the Sambhota Translation Group, rejoice in this work, and we will help with it as much as we can, directly and indirectly.”
