Empowerment & Teachings On Death, Dying, and the Intermediate States


Terton Orgyen Kusum Lingpa was born in Eastern Tibet. He is a pre-eminent Dzogchen meditation master renowned for his ability to perform the transference of consciousness at the time of death, or P'howa. He is recognized as one of the 25 heart disciples of Padmasambhava, and was later reborn as Jang Murtu Nyonpa (self secret crazy one of Shang), one of the personal disciples of yogini Ma Chig Lab Dron. He is thus directly linked to their formal instructions like an unbroken bridge.
