The Treasury of Lives

The Tropu Kagyu tradition, one of the eight minor Kagyu lineages, was founded by Gyeltsa Rinchen Gonpo, a disciple of Pakmodrupa, in the twelfth century. Rinchen Gonpo founded Tropu monastery, which became the seat of the tradition. The acclaimed translator Tropu Lotsāwa Jampa Pel, Rinchen Gonpo's nephew, would eventually establish the Tropu Kagyu as a distinct lineage.
