Shanglön Dosher Trelchung (Wyl. mdo gzher sprel chung) was one of King Trisong Detsen’s ministers. He was one of the king’s maternal uncles[1], but he hadn’t been favoured much by nature and was penniless, so he was constantly persecuted. Guru Rinpoche decided to give him the transmission of the magnetizing deity Kurukulla from the Seven Profound Cycles, and as a result of doing this practice he became the most powerful man in Tibet.
