Tibetan Buddhism Lineage

In the northern snow ranges will appear a being called Ratna Shri. He will benefit my teachings and be renowned in the three worlds.  Yeshe Yongsu Gyepa Sutra

Drong Ngur Jangchubling is a center for the practice and study of Tibetan Buddhism. There are four main sects of Tibetan Buddhism: Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya, and Gelug. Our lineage is the Kagyu tradition which originated with the Indian saint- Tilopa (988-1089 C.E). The Kagyu teachings were then spread to Tibet by Marpa (1012–1097 C.E.) and widely propagated by his most famous student, Milarepa (1052 – 1135 C.E.)

More specially, we practice in the Drikung Kagyu lineage which was established by the famous teacher, Jigten Sumgon  (1143-1217 C.E.) In the last 800 years since the time of Jigten Sumgon, many great teachers and scholars have been produced by the Drikung Kagyu lineage.

For further details and history on the Drikung Kagyu lineage, see our order’s website.
