Drokmi Lotsawa

Drokmi Lotsawa Shakya Yeshe (བྲོག་མི་ལོ་ཙཱ་བ་ཤཱཀྱ་ཡེ་ཤེས་, Wyl. brog mi lo tsA wa shAkya ye shes) (992-1072/1074) — a great translator of the early Sarma period, and an important master in the transmission of the Lamdré teachings to Tibet.

One of the most important sources of the Sakya teachings is the great Indian master Virupa (9th century), who was one of the eighty-four mahasiddhas. His lineage passed through Gayadhara (994-1043) to his Tibetan disciple, Drokmi Lotsawa. In turn, Drokmi Lotsawa passed the lineage to his main disciple, Khön Könchok Gyalpo (1034-1102), founder of the Sakya school. Marpa Lotsawa also studied for fifteen years under the guidance of Drokmi Lotsawa, learning Sanskrit and other subjects.
