Jampal Zangpo

Excerpts from The Garland of Moon Water Crystal by Situ Chokyi Jungnay and Belo Tsewang Kunkhyab

Jampal Zangpo was born at Damshang in Eastern Tibet. He showed interest in the Buddhist path from an early age. He practised the meditation on Tara for many years until he had perfected it and had met with Tara face to face. He took ordination from Tsalmig Samten Zangpo at the age of twenty. He studied the entire Sutrayana and Vajrayana with the famous scholar Rongton and, during four years, he received the teachings on the Six Doctrines of Naropa from the sixth Karmapa, Tongwa Donden. Jampal Zangpo attained complete realisation of the ultimate meaning of the Kagyu teachings. He was a master of outstanding qualities who became the guru of the seventh Karmapa, Chodrag Gyamtso.
