Katok Tsewang Norbu

Katok Tsewang Norbu

Katok Tsewang Norbu (Wylie: "kaḥ thog tshe dbang nor bu") (1698-1755) was a Nyingmapa who championed the view of 'extrinsic emptiness' or Zhentong (Wylie: "gzhen-stong") which he propogated amongst his tradition. His seat was the Katok Monastery.

Contextualising Zhentong

After the suppression of the Jonang school and its texts and the texts of Sakya Chokden by the Tibetan government in the 1600s, various Shentong views were propagated mainly by Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lamas. In particular, the 8th Tai Situ Rinpoche (Situ Paṇchen Chökyi Jungné (si tu paṇ chen chos kyi 'byung gnas) (1700-1774)) and Katok Tsewang Norbu (kaḥ thog tshe dbang nor bu) (1698-1755), close colleagues and Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lamas respectively, were very instrumental in reviving Shentong among their sects. This revival was continued by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, a 19th century Rime (ecumenical) scholar and forceful exponent of Shentong, and were also advanced recently by the eminent Kagyu Lamas Kalu Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche.
