He belonged to the so called Kadampa tradition, the second wave of Buddhists in Tibet that was founded by the Indian master Atisha. According to the tradition he was inspired by the Lo Jong text called Eight Point Mind Training by Dorje Senge, especially the last eight verse, and travelled to meet Dorje Senge. However, Dorje Senge had passed, and he received the instructions from Sharawa.
