The Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche called him „a  central force of sanity who

represents the ideal warrior, the vanguard of Shambhala, the lord of Dralas“.

Gesar of Ling appeared in a time of turmoil, when the Dharma was attacked in Tibet,

and the country was taken over by corrupt warlords. He managed reestablish sanity and

peace. Gesar is a great source of inspiration to the lineage of Shambhala. The

Dorje Dradül Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche attributed all the Shambhala Termas he

received from Gesar of Ling.
