"Barawa Gyaltshen Palzang ('ba' ra ba rgyal mtshan dpal bzang) [1255—1343] was a great scholar of the upper Drukpa Kagyu succession of Yangonpa. He established the Barawa Kagyu sub-school which for a time was widespread in Tibet, and survived as an independent lineage until 1959.[1] For a time this lineage was also important in Bhutan."[2]

"In the 14th century, the Barawa sub-school was established at Drangyekha in Paro by Barawa Gyeltsen Pelzang."[3]
