Jikme Lingpa (Tib. འཇིགས་མེད་གླིང་པ་, Wyl. ‘jigs med gling pa) (1730-1798) is regarded as one of the most important figures in the Nyingma lineage. Also known as ‘Khyentse Özer’, ‘Rays of Compassion and Wisdom’, he was a great scholar and visionary, and discovered the Longchen Nyingtikcycle of teachings and practice through a series of visions from the great fourteenth century master, Longchenpa. With the patronage of the Dergéroyal family, Jikme Lingpa published the compilation of Nyingma tantras known as the Nyingma Gyübum and composed a catalogue to accompany it.
