Great dzogchen master Jigme Phuntsok renewed the practice of Ling Gesar cham in Serta Larung buddhist settlement founded by him in Eastern Tibet. He is the greatest master of inner practice of King Gesar of Ling and all lamas from this part of Tibet are founding the legitimacy of their transmission on transmissions and permissions received from Jigme Phuntsok.
In 1990, he discovered a sacred site that had been a palace of legendary King Gesar. That led to an archaeological dig that turned up ancient building stones and several treasure chests. His findings of new sacred sites and caves that related to previous Buddhas and reincarnations are numerous in Tibet.
