Prerequisite: 100 Shitro Deities empowerment or Oral Transmission of the Tibetan Book of the Dead
Traditionally when you practice and study the Tibetan Book of the Dead, empowerment and oral transmission is received in order to receive the blessings from the unbroken lineage from Guru Rinpoche himself. Ideally, the best is to receive empowerment of the 100 Shitro deities and next best is to receive the oral transmission of the book. For practitioners you need at least one of them to receive this particular teaching. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche has the unbroken lineage of Nyingma masters directly from Guru Rinpoche on this special book.
Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama’s Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche. He received teachings from twenty-five masters representing all five schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Tulku Yeshi has written thirteen books, ten of which have been published, on the subject of Tibetan Buddhism and culture, including “A One Thousand Year History of Sakyapa.” He has published three books in English: his autobiography “A Modern Liberation Odyssey – An Autobiography of a Tibetan Nomad Lama”, “Handbook for Half-Buddhas” and “Tibetan Zen.” He also writes novels, poetry for mind training, provides Tibetan astrology readings, can advise people on how to enjoy their life, and can bestow empowerments. Currently he is working on Dharma activities at Sakya Monastery in Seattle. He is now working on producing a documentary on His Holiness Jidgal Dagchen Rinpoche’s life.
