My uncle, Kyabje Moktsa Rinpoche, is the older brother of my father. He is one of the five golden throne holders of the Nyingma Kathog lineage and people call him "the Father of Kathog lineage". My uncle himself is a great master with many incredible abilities to help beings. It would be of great benefit for those people who are able to make a connection with him.

Kadampa Deshek (1122-1192) established the Kathog monastery in Kham in 1159, and with this he founded the Kathog lineage, which is the oldest of the Nyingma establishments. All of Kadampa Deshek's five principal disciples attained the rainbow body. From them down to Nyala Pema Dudul at the end of the 19th century, one hundred thousand practitioners associated with the Kathog lineage have attained rainbow body.

Guru Padmasambhava said that the blessings that a person could receive from visiting Kathog monastery were equivalent to the Vajra Seat in Bodhgaya on which the Buddha attained enlightenmend. Guru Rinpoche himself consecrated Kathog monastery 13 times and he prophesied that the Kathog monastery would be the unsurpassable holy place of Tibet and the ultimate source for the propagation of Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal's Vajrayana teachings.

The location of Kathog monastery is well-known as a holy place. It has many self-arising signs of realisation, such as self-manifesting letter of "AH", and self-emanating Vajrapani on a rock and etc. There is also a sacred spot where the footprints of one hundred thousand dakinis can be found.

When I have time I will try to add more details about my uncle and his sublime lineage.
