Beru Drubse Jangchub Chokyi Nyima (be ru grub sras byang chub chos kyi nyi ma) was likely born in the fourth quarter of the eighteenth century. The details of his birth, parentage, and early life are unknown. At a young age he was identified as the reincarnation of Tsera Terton Choje Lingpa (rtse ra gter ston chos rje gling pa, 1682-1720), and was subsequently brought to Katok Monastery (kaH thog rdo rje gdan) in Kham.
There he studied scripture, grammar, and poetry, and other common subjects with Chokyi Dorje (chos kyi rdo rje, d.u.), and the curriculum of the Katok tradition with the First Katok Getse, Paṇchen Gyurme Tsewang Chokdrub (kaH thog sge rtse 01 paN chen 'gyur med tshe dbang mchog grub, 1761-1829). He eventually studied and practiced the treasure (gter ma) teachings of Rigdzin Longsel Nyingpo (rig 'dzin klong gsal snying po 1625-1692), and received the full transmission of their commentaries, empowerments, and instructions.
He is credited with five volumes of collected works, which include religious songs (mgur), spiritual instructions (zhal gdams), and several sādhanas and rituals relating to the Longsel Tercho (klong gsal gter chos skor).
