the Tibetan lama Paljor...
(Kunga Paljor 1428 - 1476)

Gyalwang Drukpa Kunga Paljor

The second of a long line of Tibetan lamas of the Drukpa Buddhist tradition, Gyalwang Drukpa Kunga Paljor was born only born two centuries after the first, his previous incarnation Tsangpa Gyare Yeshe Dorje (1161 - 1211).

(During the absence of a Gyalwang Drukpa, there were nine successors with the title of "Lion" (instead of the usual "Dragon") who were all very learned pandits, three of whom were emanations of Manjushri, Vajrapani and Avalokiteshvara.)

Kunga Paljor was popularly known as "Gyalwa Je", a name given by the dakinis, and he normally used this name.

This Gyalwang Drukpa was noted for his attainment in philosophy, Sanskrit and translation skills. As he was a realized being, he often went around giving teachings; he was renowned for teaching the direct way to unveil the Buddha nature.

Kunga Paljor had a vision in which Gampopa himself conferred the supreme authority upon him as the chief of the Drukpa Order. His outstanding disciples were the Three Divine Madmen of Tibet, Drukpa Kunley, Unyon and Tsangnyon, as well as yogi Thangthong Gyalpo.

(The Divine Madman Drukpa Kunley (1455-1520) is still one of the most beloved and revered sages of Tibetan Buddhism. With his wandering lifestyle, and eccentric and shocking behavior, he taught the essence of the Truth. His songs and speeches are full of earthiness and humor. His manner of relating to people, his compassion and care won him the hearts of the common people all over Tibet, Bhutan, Ladakh, and Mongolia. His teachings and biography are regarded to this very day as one of the most practical teachings.

With the guidance and prophecy of Mahakali Dusol Lhamo and the 2nd Gyalwang Drukpa, Drukpa Kunley set off for Bhutan. There he gained the love, faith and devotion of the Bhutanese people, to such an extent that some even thought that the "Drukpa" in his name meant his nationality and not his lineage.)
