The following message contains advice from Lelung Rinpoche for students and scholars of Tibetan Buddhism who are writing about the Lelung lineage

Fifth Lelung Rinpoche (1697-1740)
An heroic figure in the history of the Lelung lineage, the Fifth Lelung Rinpoche, Pema Zhepai Dorje, revealed many sacred teachings, wrote numerous manuscripts and built a new monastery in Lelung Valley

Dear friends, Below are some of the different possible spellings of masters' names in the Lelung lineage. This may help those doing research on Lelung, his lineage, or Tibetan Buddhism in general. Although there are many ways of spelling the Great Fifth Lelung Rinpoche's name, I personally request that if you are writing about him or quoting from his works, that you use one of the two preferred spellings:

Lelung Shepai Dorje
Lelung Zhepai Dorje

These are the most common ways of spelling his name and consisten use of these spellings will help people who are searching for it.
Many thanks, Lelung Rinpoche
