Chapter Summary

This section presents four types of lineage: the root rDzogs chen lineages of Shardza Rinpoche; the extended lineage of the thirty-two masters of the A khrid transmission including the branch of the dMar khrid instructions; the lineage of the Yang zab Nam mkha' mdzod; and the lineage of the exegetical teachings. The rDzogs chen lineages with which Shardza Rinpoche is associated cover the three series of the great perfection, namely the series of mind, the series of the vast Expanse and the Series of Precepts. The second lineage is different from the first one with respect to the later masters of the lineage such as the 26th lineage holder, Kun grol grags pa. The third linage is that of the various commentaries composed by Yang zab Nam mkha' mdzod. The fourth lineage is that of the various commentaries composed by Shardza Rinpoche.

Keywords: lineage charts; Shardza Rinpoche; Yang zab Nam mkha' mdzod
