Marpa Lotsawa was born in [[Lhodrak]] ([[lho brag]]), southern Tibet. He was to become the founding father of the [[Kagyu]] tradition in Tibet. First he studied Sanskrit and other Indian languages with [[Drogmi Lotsawa]] ([[brog mi lo tsa ba]]) (993-1050). Then he travelled to India three times and studied under his main gurus [[Naropa]] and [[Maitripa]]. Other teachers from whom he received transmissions and instructions were, among many others, [[Jnanagarbha]] and [[Kukkuripa]]. Marpa became the teacher of the famous [[Jetsun Milarepa]] ([[rje btsun mi la ras pa]]). His other main  disciples were [[Ngok Choku Dorje]] ([[rngog chos sku rdo rje]]), [[Meton Tsenpo]] ([[mes ston tshon po]]) and [[Tshurton Wangi Dorje] ([[mtshur ston dbang gi rdo rje]]). Marpa's biography and spiritual songs were compiled and published by [[Tsang Nyon Heruka]] (1452-1507).
