A Brief Introduction:
Drikung Kagyu Lineage

The Drikung Kagyu Lineage is one of the Kagyu lineages which was founded 852 years ago, by the great spiritual master, Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon. This lineage directly came from Buddha Shakyamuni and the primordial Buddha, VajraDhara.

The first lineage was called the Magnificent Blessing Realization lineage. From VajraDhara, it was passed on to Tilopa, and so forth, on to Gampopa.

The second lineage was called the lineage of Profound View.
It came from Buddha Shakyamuni, and it was passed on to Manjushri, Manjushri to Nagarjuna, and so forth, on to Atisha, and from Atisha to so forth, on to Gampopa.

The third lineage was called the lineage of the Most Excellent Practice. It came from Buddha Shakyamuni to Maitreya, Maitreya to Asanga and so forth, on to Atisha, and from Atisha to so forth, on to Gampopa.

Gampopa received all the three profound teachings, such as, Blessing Experience Lineage (Secret oral Tantra lineage ), The Profound View & Action Lineage (Sutra Bodhichitta lineage ), and then all these teachings were given to PhagmoDrupa.  

Although PhagmoDrupa had hundreds of thousands of disciples, Lord Jigten Sumgon was one of his closest and chief disciples.

PhagmoDrupa prophesied that the teachings and blessings would be carried on by a Bodhisattva, (Jigten Sumgon), who already attained the ten Bhumis.

Jigten Sumgon received the complete teachings, secret oral transmissions, explanations and initiations, and enlightened realization blessings, and so forth from PhagmoDrupa.

Jigten Sumgon gave all the complete teachings, including the six Yogas of Naropa, to his chief disciple, Gurawa Tsultrim Dorje.

All these enlightened energies, blessings and teachings have been handed down through the great spiritual masters, to the present 36th lineage holder, His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang Rinpoche, and the 37th lineage holders, His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche.

These are among the most precious spiritual masters in the Drikung Kagyu lineage and the direct lineage holder of Jigten Sumgon.Lord Jigten Sumgon prophesied again and again among his disciples, "In the future my teachings will flourish by the two Bodhisattvas, who are like the sun and the moon, through their compassion and wisdom." His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche is like the sun. He is the emanation of Chenrezig, the compassionate deity. His Holiness Chungtsang Rinpoche is like the moon. He is the emanation of Manjushri, the wisdom deity.
