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

The Fifth Shamarpa, Konchog Yenlag was identified by the eighth Karmapa, Mikyo Dorje.

The eighth Karmapa stated that the Karmapa reincarnations and the Shamarpa reincarnations are, in fact, of the same mind-stream, that they are inseparable.

Konchog Yenlag was a scholar and a meditation master. During his life he wrote seven well-known texts on the practice of meditation.

He also recognised and became the guru of the ninth Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje.
