The Neydo tradition is a unique marriage of two of the oldest schools in Tibetan Buddhisem - Kagyu and Nyingma. The Origin of this special tradition is with the Sharmapa line. It was founded by the Mahasiddha Karma Chagme Rinpoche, in the 17th century, who held both the root Dharma lineage of Neydo practiced principally in the Kagyu Tradition, and the Dharma lineage of Palyul, Dzokchen etc. practiced principally in the Nyingma tradition, that became a single lineage and completely pervaded the countries of Kham and Amdo.
Mahasiddha Karma Chagme Rinpoche learned through the profound insructions of Dzokchen, and became the main Dharma heir of Namchoe, the most profound and essential of all treasure teachings. Thereafter, he actualized the ultimate realization of the practice of unifying mahamudra and maha-ati, becoming a holder of the Teachings of the Ancient Translation Tradition. Countless students achieved realization - those fortunate ones who received empowerments and special instructions directly from him, as well as those whose devotion stemmed from reading his written compositions.
The sacred Neydo Lineage, prospered throughout the land of snows, solely due to the kindness of this great, accomplished lord & continues to spread and grow as the heart of the Buddha's teaching to all the corner's of the earth.
