mkhyen brtse'i bka' babs
The Khyentse Kabab collection, in twenty-two volumes, is structured around the notion of the seven types of authoritative transmission (bka' babs bdun) that were considered an essential aspect of Khyentse Wangpo's unique endowment as a highly influential promulgator of the Buddhist teachings. It is essentially a thematic collection. One that was created in recent times as a repository for the works related to this unique facet of Khyentse Wangpo's revelatory career and his fulfillment of the prophecies connected to his status as the "Possessor of the Seven Authoritative Transmissions" (bka' babs bdun ldan). Drawn mostly from earlier editions of the Rinchen Terdzö, the original vehicle developed to house Khyentse Wangpo's revelations alongside those of his predecessors and contemporaries, this collection also includes the works of those who upheld Khyentse Wangpo's tradition of these seven transmissions. Prominent authors featured in these volumes include his direct disciples, such as Jamgön Kongtrul, Chogyur Lingpa, Adzom Drukpa, the Third Dodrupchen Jigme Tenpai Nyima, and Mipham Gyamtso. As well as the following generation of masters and scholars, including his illustrious incarnations Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö and Dilgo Khyentse Tashi Paljor, and other Tibetan luminaries of the last century such as Dudjom Rinpoche, Jikdral Yeshe Dorje. This edition was created at Khyentse Wangpo's seat at Dzongsar Monastery in eastern Tibet and has benefitted greatly from the expertise and contributions of its prominent scholars, such as the Dzongsar Khenpos Phunstok Namgyal and Pema Damchö, and especially Dr. Lodrö Phuntsok, whom has been an invaluable asset to the preservation of the literary works of Khyentse Wangpo in recent times and the driving force behind the publication of the collections included on this site.
