Jatson Nyingpo ('ja' tshon snying po) was born in 1585 in Waru, in Kongpo. His father was named Chokyong Gonpo (chos skyong mgon po) and his mother was Namlang Buti (nam langs bu khrid). From the age of twelve until twenty he studied various subjects, including medicine. Then, at the age of twenty, he took preliminary ordination under Mipam Tashi Lodro (mi pham bkra shis blo gros, 1577-1636), and received the name of Ngawang Chogyel Wangpo (ngag dbang chos rgyal dbang po). He received full ordination from a certain Lhatsewa (lha rtse ba).

Jatson Nyingpo spent seventeen years in retreat, sealing the door of his hermitage with clay. According to his hagiography, while in retreat or soon afterwards, at the age of thirty-six, in 1620, he revealed a treasure inventory said to be written in the hand of Yeshe Tsogyel (mtsho rgyal gyi phyag bris ma), and went on to reveal numerous treasure texts, including his best known cycle, the Konchok Chidu (dkon mchog spyi 'dus), or Embodiment of the Three Jewels, a Guru Rinpoche sadhana which has inspired numerous commentaries. He is also known under the treasure name Ledro Lingpa (las 'phro gling pa) and the tantric name Ngakchang Humnak Mebar (sngags 'chang hUm nag me 'bar).

Jatson Nyingpo established the monastic center of Bangri Jokpo (bang ri 'jog po), and he served as master to many prominent Nyingma and Kagyu lamas. These included the Tenth Karmapa, Choying Dorje (karma pa 10 chos dbyings rdo rje. 1610-1674); the Fourth Tsurpu Gyeltsab, Drakpa Dongrub (mtshur phu rgyal tshab 04 grags pa don grub, 1550-1617); the First Drigung Chungtsang, Chokyi Drakpa ('[[bri gung[chung tshang chos kyi grags pa]], 1595-1659); the Fifth Drukchen, Paksam Wangpo ('brug che 05 dpag bsam dbang po, 1593-1641), Dordrak Rigdzin Ngagi Wangpo (rdo brag rig 'dzin ngag gi dbang po, 1580-1639), Tsele Natsok Rangdrol (rtse le sna tshogs rang grol, b. 1608), Lhatson Namkha Jigme (lha btsun nam mkha' 'jigs med, 1597-1650), Rigdzin Trinle Lhundrub (rig 'dzin 'phrin las lhun grub, 1611-1662) and Terton Dudul Dorje (gter ston bdud 'dul rdo rje, 1615-1672).

Jatson Nyingpo died at the age of seventy-two. His Konchok Chidu treasure teaching remains widely practiced among the Nyingma and Kagyu traditions.


“Konchod Chidu means “Embodiment of the precious ones.” It’s a practice concentrating on Guru Rinpoche, and it includes all the Three Roots – outer peaceful Padmasambhava as Guru, inner wrathful Padmasambhava as yidam, and secret Padmasambhava in the form of Simhamukha as Dakini, as well as Padma Wodbhar as the long life form of Padmasambhava. This terma treasure was found by terton Jatson Nyingpo, a reincarnation of Nyongben Tingzin Zangpo, a close student of Padmasambhava, who attained the rainbow body.

Konchog Chidu is a very profound and wide cycle of teachings. Padmasambhava says: If someone even just opens a book of this text, the surroundings become rich and peaceful, and all wars become reduced. If you have devotion and wish to practice this text, it has the power of giving you the attainment of a pure land, even to an animal. These blessings of this profound teaching have not diminished, and therefore receiving this teaching is more precious than finding a wish fulfilling jewel. Even if you have doubt about this dharma, or you think that it’s impossible to receive these blessings, your bad karma will be purified and you will enter the path of liberation.

In addition, an individual practitioner who even just holds these teachings in his hands, offers to its deities or listens to these precious teachings, is a son of all Tathagats gone to bliss, and his karmic defilements become pure like a washed white conch. The two accumulations increase like the stars in the sky. Life, accumulations, bodhichitta mind and wisdom increase limitlessly. When death comes, one can recognize ones own natural state and be liberated in the bardo. There is no question about the benefits if you practice or accomplish this text. These are words of Padmasambhava.”

Konchog Chidu is a very profound and wide cycle of teachings. There are many ways to accomplish Padmasambhava’s mind, but this is one of the highest and most secret way.

Padmasambhava says: If someone even just opens a book of this text, the surroundings become rich and peaceful, and all wars become reduced. If you have devotion and wish to practice this text, even if you are an animal, it helps you to attain a pure land. For the beings of this degenerate time, receiving this precious, unbroken, and blessful teaching is more rare and precious than finding a wish fulfilling jewel.

These are words of Padmasambhava.

The Konchok Chidu, or “Gathering of All Precious Jewels”, is a Guru Yoga practice which involves four aspects of Padmasambhava’s activities, and encompasses all Three Roots: the Lama, the Yidam, and the Kandro, in the forms of Tsokye Dorje, Guru Drakpo, and Senge Dongma Singhamukha, respectively.

Removing harmful influences, generating positive circumstances for the environment and all beings, increasing virtue, and clearing away ignorance are among the beneficial attributes of this extraordinary practice.

The Konchok Chidu tsewang transmits a very direct and powerful connection to Padmasambhava, Guru Rinpoche, who himself says that “receiving this precious, unbroken, and blissful teaching is more rare and precious than finding a wish-fulfilling jewel.”
