Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin (Wylie: rdzogs chen padma rig 'dzin) (1625–1697)

"The First Dzogchen Rinpoche, Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin, an emanation of Saraha, Vimalamitra and Padmasambhava, was the great siddha who founded the Dzogchen Monastery in Kham, East Tibet in 1684–5. ... He was ordained by the Fifth Dalai Lama, thereby creating a close link between the Dzogchen Rinpoches and the Dalai Lamas."[1]
