Interpretation / Description

Marpa Chokyi Lodro, Translator (1012-1096): founder of one of the two schools named Kagyu (Oral Tradition) in Tibetan Buddhism. Marpa's tradition was called Kagyu and after him was referred to as Marpa Kagyu to differentiate itself from the unrelated Shangpa Kagyu Tradition founded by Kedrub Kyungpo Naljor.
