Research on Gomchens and Rechens of Sikkim

This research project on the Gomchens and Rechens (Great Meditation and Tantric Masters) of Sikkim was initiated in 2012.  As no substantial documents on the subject have yet been located, the biographies will be collected through the method of oral history and archival research.  The biographies will initially be compiled in Tibetan and will subsequently be translated into English.
