The Oracle of Nechung
Nechung refers to the Dharma Protector and the Chief Tibetan Oracle. Pehar, the King of Activity is often considered to be the Chief of these five Nechung Protectors. The Nechung Oracle, Dorje Drakden, is the Emissary of the Five Kings, primarily an emanation of the King of Speech. There are many instances of how the Nechung Oracle manifests his powers in the physical world. After the passing of Lobzang Jigme, the previous Medium in April 1984, there was a gap of three years when there was no presence of a Medium for the Nechung Oracle. On September 4th, 1987, he was fully recognized to be the Medium of Nechung, the Tibetan Oracle. To this day, the Nechung Kuten engages in extensive meditation, rituals and retreats to maintain the profound connection he has with the Nechung Oracle. In recent times, the Nechung Kuten has been a monk from Nechung Monastery itself.
