Obeisance to Drukgom Zhigpo, Forerunner of the Glorious Palden Drukpa tradition, manifestation of Avalokitesvara, and essence of compassion of all the Buddhas, who appeared in person in the land of the Glorious Drukpa to benefit sentient beings.Obeisance to the Zhigpo, manifestation of Buddha Samantabhadra or Kuntu Zangmo's embodiment Macik Lapdroen, who appeared in this land of Ten Accomplished Virtues and left this earthly existence for her heavenly abode without losing her human form.Obeisance to Nyima (Surya) who excelled in both means and wisdom and continued both the religious and family lineages. Having paid my deep respects to the Father, Mother and the sons who introduced the spiritual and temporal traditions of the pe erless Palden Drukpa, I shall now write down a brief history of the Chang Gangkha monastery in Thimphu Valley.Before writing about the monastery, we have to trace back its history to the father of its founder.
