Do Khyentsé Yeshé Dorjé
Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje (Tib. མདོ་མཁྱེན་བརྩེ་ཡེ་ཤེས་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Wyl. mdo mkhyen brtse ye shes rdo rje) (1800-1866) — the mind emanation of Jikmé Lingpa. He was said to be the son of the protector Nyenchen Tanglha. His main teacher was the First Dodrupchen, Jikmé Trinlé Özer. His life featured many miraculous events, especially during his childhood, and in later life he lived as a hunter, like some of the mahasiddhas of ancient India. He famously introduced Patrul Rinpoche to the nature of mind while beating him and dragging him by the hair.

A short text on kyerim, often attributed to Do Khyentse, is actually the work of Dola Jikmé Kalzang.
- His anniversary is celebrated on the 20th day of the 2nd month of the Tibetan lunar calendar.
- According to Masters of Meditation and Miracles (pages 179 & 338), he was the mind incarnation, and the source for this is the biography of Patrul Rinpoche composed by Khenpo Kunpal. In that biography, Khenpo Kunpal does indeed say that Do Khyentse was the mind incarnation, Patrul Rinpoche the speech incarnation, and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo the body incarnation. On page 133 of Masters of Meditation & Miracles, Tulku Thondup says that Do Khyentse was the body incarnation, and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo was the mind incarnation, but since the same reference to Khenpo Kunpal is given this appears to be a mistake.
