Longchen Rabjampa (Longchenpa) (1308 – 1363) was the reincarnation of Princess Pemasel, the daughter of King Trisong Detsen, and a direct student of Guru Rinpoche. His birth in the Tra Valley of southern Tibet was accompanied by miraculous events and auspicious omens. He began his Dharma training at the age of seven, when he received empowerments and teachings from his father, a tantric yogi. At twelve, he took novice monastic vows at Samye monastery. Longchenpa studied and practiced teachings from a variety of lineages and masters. Longchenpa passed away at the age of fifty-six. He left over two hundred and fifty treatises behind, many of which are still regarded as the most comprehensive and authoritative works yet written concerning the view and practice of the Great Perfection.
