The Treasury of Lives

The Taklung Kagyu tradition was established by Taklungtangpa Tashi Pel, a disciple of Pakmodrupa Dorje Gyelpo, who founded Taklung Monastery in 1180. In 1276 Sanggye Won, who was forced from the abbacy of Taklung Monastery, went to Kham and established Riwoche, which became a second seat of the tradition.Beginning in the fifteenth century, Taklung Kagyu began to be strongly influenced by Nyingma teachings.
