This study focuses on one of luminaries, Klong chen rab ‘byams pa (1308–1363), and his own unique contributions. The aim of this study is threefold: to provide Klong chen pa’s perspective on a number of especially sensitive Buddhist points, to illuminate how his doxography fills certain lacunae in the current domain of rNying ma scholarship, and to provide a pithy treatment of how both of these contributions relate to the larger context of Buddhism’s evolution in Tibet.
