Brief Biography of Kyabje Neydo Sangtrul Rinpoche

The pioneer of the glorious and victorious Neydo Tradition, Karma Chagme, the great scholar and an accomplished master, is the combined essence of wisdom, compassion and power of the three kayas- Dharmakaya, Sambhogakaya and Nirmanakaya as well as the practitioner of the union of both the Kagyu and Nyingma Lineage.  He hoisted the flag of prominence throughout the three worlds and had many great spiritual sons including Palyul Kunzang Sherab who upheld the Nyingma Tradition, Goche Ogyen Tharchin who was a holder of Kagyu Tradition, and innumerable noble incarnated beings who followed and preserved his tradition.
          Amongst many of his students, Karma Chagme appointed the first Sangtrul Rinpoche, Sangphu Pema Kunga, who was his supreme mind son, as the spiritual heir of the three secret of his body, speech and mind who holds the root and distinct tradition of the Victorious and powerful Neydo tradition.  Many reliable sources from the scriptures prophesied the first Sangtrul Rinpoche as the authentic manifestation of Mahasiddha Shavaripa and Guru Drakpo."Wrathful Guru Padma sambhav"  The subsequent reincarnations of Sangtrul Rinpoche preserved and propagated the Neydo tradition.  When the present Karma Chagme Rinpoche told his root teacher, the Fifth Sangtrul, Karma Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche that he wanted to go to India due to political unrest in Tibet, Sangtrul Rinpoche replied that owing to his physical weakness because of old age, there is no way that he could accompany him to India.  Yet he promised to come to him later.  Karma Chagme Rinpoche upon arriving India, prayed frequently to his master to be born as his son.  As a result, on the 29th September,1965 the fifth Sangtrul Rinpoche’s incarnation was born in India with many wonderful signs.  Based on Karma Chagme Rinpoche’s pure visions and the fifth Sangtrul Rinpoche’s prophecy, the boy was recognized as the authentic reincarnation of the fifth Sangtrul Rinpoche.  The boy was ceremoniously offered ablution and his tuft-hair was cut.  He was given the name Karma Drubgyud Tenzin Dakpa.
