According to the Golok Clan History, the Dawa or Da is one of the six original clans. These are the great clans of Se, Mu, Dong and Tong and the so-called inferior clans of Ba and Da. All the ordinary people are said to derive from the lines of Ba and Da. Some people speak of a seventh lineage, the Go clan-- the Ba clan is said to have been founded by the descendants of the uncle line of the Go clan while the Da clan is said to have been founded by the descendants of the nephew line. Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje's mother was from the Dawa clan.
