Sam van Schaik, “A Tibetan Catalogue of the Works of ‘Jigs-med gling-pa

The British Library

he first printed edition of the collected works (gsung ’bum) of ’Jigs-med gling-pa was published in Derge, shortly after his death in 1798. The compilation and printing of the collected works was done under the aegis of ’Jigs-med gling-pa’s patron the queen of Derge and his disciple Mdo-grub-chen, edited by the Dge-rtse sprul-sku, Gyur-med tshe-dbang mchog-grub (1761– 1829), and printed at Derge’s Dgon-chen monastery.

Just over a century later, another edition was printed in central Tibet in 1881, generally known as the Lhasa edition.2

From the records of the printing blocks at Gnas-chung monastery, and certain extra colophons in this edition wherein Gnas-chung is mentioned, it appears that the two volumes of the Klong chen snying thig along with ’Jigs-med gling-pa’s sGom phyogs dris lan in this edition may have been copied from the blocks kept there.3

The first two volumes 1 Cf. Kolmas 1971: 237-250 which contains reproductions of some of the title pages from the Klong chen snying thig published at Dgon-chen monastery.

The life story of ’Jigs-med gling-pa has been discussed in several studies of which the most extensive is Gyatso 1998.

2 This date is given at the end of the dkar chag (p. 33.5): rab tshes lo rkyang so lnga pa khyu mchog lo’i nang gegs med du grub pa.

The terms rab tshes and khyu mchog would both usually denote the fifteenth year of the 60-year cycle (which in this case must be the cycle that began in 1867).

This year mostly corresponds to 1881 but also includes the first month of 1882 (Schuh 1973).

A third version of the collected works of ’Jigs-med gling-pa was printed by the printing house of Adzom chos-sgar in 14 volumes.

A copy of this version, with uncertain place and date of printing, is available on the TBRC website (W7477).

My previous comparisons of certain texts in Klong chen snying thig (see van Schaik 2004: 241–2) suggests that these blockprints (at least in the Klong chen snying thig volumes) differ from both the Derge and Lhasa versions, and appear to have been compiled from different manuscript exemplars.

3 Two of these colophons are given in the footnotes to the critical editions. The record of a set of Klong chen snying thig printing blocks at Gnas-chung is in Three Karchacks, p. 190. Although the number of folios given in that record do not match the number of folios in the edition exactly, they are very close: 1363 and containing the Yon tan mdzod were printed in the monastery of Rdorje- brag, and this is probably also the case for other volumes lacking additional printing colophons.

The Lhasa blockprints differ from the Derge edition in that certain texts are grouped together:

their titles appear together on a single page, and they are paginated together as a single text.

4 For example a group of four texts in the Klong chen snying thig are placed together in this way (vol. nya, 647–92), and an additional printer’s colophon is added at the end of the final text in the group.

The colophon lists the names of those who contributed and the amount of their contribution to the printing of this group of texts; most or all of these contributors seem to have been from Gnas-chung monastery.5

Thus this method of grouping texts seems to be related to the way in which funds were raised for their publication. More information about the fundraising for these blockprints is given in the dkar chag to this edition.

The dkar chag is located in the fifth volume (ca) of the Lhasa edition of the collected works of ’Jigs-med gling-pa, on pp. 1–36. It is written by Rdo-rje rgyal-mtshan, though it also reproduces parts of the catalogue in the Sde-dge edition by Dge-rtse sprul-sku.6

It is 1353 respectively (both other editions contain considerably fewer pages).

Also recorded amongst the rather few (only five, all Nyingma) sets at Gnas-chung is a Sgom phyogs dris lan, presumably ’Jigs-med gling-pa’s text.

Here the number of folios is not close to the version in SBl, yet the colophon mentions Gnas-chung, so there may be have been an error in the folio count. 4 See van Schaik 2004: 39–40, 241–242; Gyatso 1998: 310.

6 It is not easy to identify this Rdo-rje rgyal-mtshan. From the colophon to his account of the printing of this edition, we see that he was residing in retreat in Yer-pa at the time of writing.

Thus he may be the doctor ’Tsho-byed Rdo-rje rgyal-mtshan (d.1927?) who is mentioned in several sources gathered in the TBRC record P4543: he is said to have been a physician to the king of Bhutan at A Tibetan Catalogue of the Works of ‘Jigs-med gling-pa

titled Differentiating the Supreme Dharma: a list of the complete works of VidyādharaJigs-med gling-pa, the all-knowing king of the dharma ([[Kun mkhyen chos kyi rgyal po rig 'dzin 'jigs med gling pa'i bka' 'bum yongs rdzogs kyi bzhugs byang chos rab rnam 'byed) and is divided into the following parts:

2.1 Opening verses.

2.3 The dkar chag by Dge-brtse sprul-sku Tshe-dbang mchog-grub. 9.1 An account of compilation and printing by Dge-brtse sprul-sku. 14.2 The main list of works (bzhugs byang dkar chag dngos). 20.6 The benefits of his activities and a final supplication of dedication.

20.6 Verses from the Perfection of Wisdom in 8,000 Verses (yum sdud pa).

22.5 A few verses of dedication.

25.6 An account of printing in central Tibet.

34.1–36.4 Conclusion.

The catalogue (bzhugs byang) on pp. 14–20 is translated below.

Though attributed to Rdo-rje rgyal-mtshan it is almost directly copied from that of Dge-brtse sprul-sku, to the extent that it is not entirely accurate (for example, it lists Yon tan mdzod in volume ka when it is in fact in volume kha).

Thus the reason for the inclusion of both Dge-brtse sprul-sku’s catalogue as well as this one is not entirely clear, except that this one is distinguished by the addition of the folio numbers of the Lhasa blockprints.

There is also a problem with the page order.

The first dkar chag (pp. 2–8) is missing the last page or so, and Dge-brtse sprul-sku’s account of the Sde-dge printing (pp. 9–14) is missing its opening.

Furthermore, pp. 31–32 (folio 16 in the Tibetan numbering) of the account of the printing in Central Tibet appears to belong in Dge-brtse sprul-sku’s account, and should be inserted immediately before p. 9 (folio 5 in the Tibetan numbering).

This is still not the first page of Dge-brtse sprul-sku’s account, which seems to be entirely missing here.

The catalogue includes some description of the longer texts, but is content to list the shorter ones. Most of ’Jigs-med gling-pa’s shorter texts are titled according to the Tibetan custom of having both an ornamental and a descriptive title.

I have translated the descriptive parts of the titles, and left the ornamental parts, by which the texts one time, to have been responsible for carving blocks of the Rgyud bzhi, and to have settled in the latter part of his life in Yer-pa.

Further support for this identification is offerred by the dkar chag itself, in which the sickness and cure of the patron Gro-shod skal-bzang chos-’phel is mentioned as a motivation for this making a “repayment for medical services” (sman yon); see pp. 26–27.

Revue d’Etudes Tibétaines are generally known, in Tibetan with the intention of giving an easy overview of the contents of the texts as well as their shortened Tibetan titles. I have added page numbers for all texts from the Sonam T. Kazi edition (see the Bibliography).

The translations I have used for the main Tibetan words for textual genres encountered here are as follows

spring ba epistle bstod hymn gsol 'debs prayer bsngags praise smon lam aspiration / aspirational prayer cho ga ritual mchod offering skong gso fulfillment offering nyer bsdus condensed (form) man ngag instructions

The colophons have been transcribed directly from the Sonam T. Kazi edition of the Lhasa blockprints, published in Gangtok in 1970– 75.7 As mentioned above, these sometimes contain addenda relating to their printing in the present edition; for example the colophon of the last text in the collection, the sGom phyogs dris lan, states that the blocks are kept at Gnas-chung monastery.

In these colophons I have placed personal names in bold where the names relate to contemporaries of ’Jigs-med gling-pa. I have not included historical figures such as Klong-chen-pa and Padmasambhava, who appear in so many of the colophons, or the various names by which

Jigs-med gling-pa signs himself. Among those credited with inspiring ’Jigsmed gling-pa’s compositions are the Sa-skya throne holder Ngagdbang kun-dga’ blo-gros (1729–1783), and two Dge-lugs monks from ’Bras-spungs monastery.

Several of ’Jigs-med gling-pa’s rnying ma disciples, such as Padma chos-’byor rgya-mtsho, are also credited.8

Place names relevant to the writing and publication of the texts are underlined in the colophons. A large number were written in the monastery of Tshe-ring-ljongs Padma-’od-gsal-gling, which ’Jigsmed gling-pa founded after his retreat. Other were written earlier in his retreat cave.

Some were written in other monasteries, including the main temple (gtsug lag khang) at Sa-skya and the ’Bri-gung rdzong-gsar. I have also added a few other notes, including 7 The actual printing house is given as being in Daryaganj, Delhi.
