The Five Chronicles is a treasure (terma, gter ma) text discovered by Urgyen Lingpa (O rgyan gling pa, born c. 1323). It was revealed in stages in the mid-fourteenth century, in last few decades of the Mongols’ Yuan dynasty. The Chronicles focus on the events surrounding Padmasambhava, but also contains other material. They recount the ancient history of Tibetan gods and demons, kings, queens, scholars, saints, and ministers.
