Jigme Lingpa statue 20cm
Copper statue of Jigme Lingpa Tibetan yogi
Jigme Lingpa (1729–1798) was a Tibetan tertön of the Nyingma sect of Tibetan Buddhism. He was the promulgator of the Longchen Nyingthik, the Heart Essence teachings of Longchenpa, from whom he received a vision in which the teachings were revealed. The Longchen Nyingthik eventually became the most famous and widely practiced cycle of Dzogchen teachings.
Jigme Lingpa was never fully ordained, living as a tantrika, with a topknot and robes.
