$100.00 – $575.00
The Great Lord Jigten Sumgön (1143-1217) is the embodiment of the Buddha of the Three Times, the reincarnation of Arya Nagarjuna, and Founder of the Drikung Kagyu lineage. Of him, the Buddha once said: “The fountain-head place of Dharma named Drikung will produce Ratnashri, born in the hog year. He will be surrounded by a million-strong host of disciples and upon his death he will enter the Ngongai Buddha Fields. There he will be called the “Perfect White Buddha.” (Ghongdhu Sutra).
Lord Jigten Sumgön attained Buddhahood in the Echung Cave at the age of thirty-five. When the first Karmapa, Dusum Khenpa, visited Drikung, he saw Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon Ratnashri as the Buddha himself and, developed great faith in him and received his teachings. The kings of India, China and Tibet all recognized him and Maldrozichen, a king of the Nagas, offered to maintain the growing number of disciples at Drikung.
