The Treasury of Lives

The Martsang Kagyu was established when Marpa Sherab Yeshe, a disciple of Pakmodrupa, founded Sho Monastery in 1167, in Markham, Kham. Sherab Yeshe's disciple Drogon Rinchen founded a monastery named Tsomdo, and together the two monasteries serve as the headquarters of the tradition, which is led by the Gangri Karma incarnations. Both monasteries were destroyed by the Mongol invasions of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, and were rebuilt each time.
