Trophu Kagyu
The Trophu Kagyu lineage (khro phu) was established by Gyal Tsha Rinchen Gon (rgyal tsha rin chen mgon, 1118-1195) and Kunden Repa (kun ldan ras pa, 1148-1217). One of its famous masters was Trophu Lotsawa Jampa Pal (khro phu lo tsa ba byams pa dpal). Another famous one was the great scholar and historian Butön (bu ston rin chen grub, 1290-1364) who became very influential in the spreading of the Kalacakra system in Tibet.
