The Light of Dawn is a biography of the Second Barway Dorje composed by his disciple and attendant, Karma Tupten, and translated from Tibetan into English by Yeshe Gyamtso.

The current version of the Second Barway Dorje’s biography was written in 2003 at the request of the Third Bardor Tulku Rinpoche and published in 2012 by Kunzang Palchen Ling.

Karma Tupten is Lama Tashi Topgyal’s grandfather from whom he received many teachings. Karma Tupten lives and continues to teach at Raktrul Monastery in Kham, East Tibet.

History of the Barom Kagyu lineage – KPL Bookstore
Garland of Ketaka, A Concise History of the Glorious Barom Kagyu is a history of the Barom Kagyu, one of the four original lineages stemming directly from Gampopa. This book describes both this lineage’s succession over the last thousand years and its short visionary lineage, which arose in the 19th Century through the visionary encounter of Terchen Barway Dorje and the dakini Akashayogini.

The Laughter of Great Secret Siddhi describes the life of the dakini Atroma, who lived hundreds of years ago but reappeared in visionary reality as Akashayogini.
Written by the Eighth Aten Puntsok of Kyodrak and Karma Thubten Dechen Nyingpo. Translated by Yeshe Gyamtso
