Title: Si tu paṇ chen and the House of Sde dge: A Demanding but Beneficial Relationship
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Rémi Chaix
One Sentence Summary: An exploration of Si tu paṇ chen's relationship with the house of Sde dge.

Description: Creator's Description: Si tu paṇ chen (1700-1774) is widely known as a prominent scholar of the eighteenth century and as the editor of Sde dge’s xylographic edition of the Bka’ ’gyur. High-ranking sprul sku (nirmāṇakāya) of the Karma bka’ brgyud order, his life and career were also largely determined by his relation with the House of Sde dge. Becoming one of its leading chaplains, at the age of 12, Si tu paṇ chen was engaged in a long-lasting and demanding relationship, but one which also quickly turned out to be beneficial. His autobiography accurately records this “chaplain-patron” (mchod yon) relationship, and gives a clear insight into how Si tu paṇ chen managed to deal with this duty, taking advantage of it, and handled successfully his patrons, his order and his personal projects (the Printing House, Dpal spungs Monastery, ...).
