Guidebook to the hidden land of Pemako

The Lama’s heart advice which dispels all obstacles
A concise guidebook to the hidden land of Pemako
by Khamtrul Jamyang Dondrup Rinpoche

Hung! I prostrate to you Dorje Tho Treng Tsal.

In future times, at the end of the turbulent and wicked age, there
will arise a time when Vidhyadharas of intrinsic awareness will flee
their homelands from foreign invaders who incite great trepidation and
fear in the hearts of our people. Their longing will guide them to
pilgrimage to distant hidden lands and will find refuge amongst the
secret valleys to the south in the land of Monyul. There are myriad
enumerations of short and long-winded tales of these most blessed of
lands however, the account I have written here is a concise summary of
my own.

Our legends tell us that Tibet, the Land of Snows is analogous to a
supine ogress outstretched on her back. In the upper torso of her body
lay the heart of Ngari, and Tsang. In her lower torso are the legs of
Do Kham, China and Mongolia. In her secret place is Er Lang Ri and her
head arises as the immaculately pure glacial snows of Mount Kailash.
In her cardinal and intermediate directions, she is surrounded by the
twenty-five sacred Neychen containing the mysterious and unknown
abodes of the gods. Out of all of these obscure and mystic places,
that which is most pre-eminent and supreme amongst all the hidden
valleys in the Land of Snows is the Beyul Pema-ko – resplendent and
agape like an immaculate lotus flower.
