Tulku Thondup did a excellent job of tracing and recording the Longchen Nyingthig Lineage and presenting some of the great miraculous counts of their Yogic abilities resulting from their faith and dedication to their Guru's and their teachings. Many of us are able to trace our teachers lineage here and help establish a great faith in our lineage, teachers, and teachings. Thank you Tulku Thondup for your hard work!

Tulku Thondup presents here the biographies of 36 Tibetan Buddhist Masters. They belong to the Longchen Nyingthig tradition which is currently one of the most well known and practiced among Western followers of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
The Introduction and first chapters explain the setting of the Longchen Nyingthig tradition within Tibetan Buddhism and Buddhism as a whole, and give detailed lineage lists. Then follow the biographies, the heart of the book.
These life-stories vary greatly - some are brief and others run to many pages. Some of the masters lived over a thousand years ago while others are still alive now. But each story is told with simplicity and freshness that help the reader to connect with these masters. As Tulku Thondup says in his Preface, "If the lives are read in order to feel and unite with the experiences of the masters, the stories will certainly arouse spiritual realization, love, peace, openness, light, and healing in the reader's heart."
