Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, Sonam Tsemo, Jetsun Drakpa Gyeltsen, Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyeltsen and Drogon Chogyal Phagpa are known as the Five Superiors of the Sakya Tradition, sometimes also translated as The Five Sakya Forefathers.

The first three are known as the Three White Ones (dkar po rnam gsum) as they were lay practitioners, and the last two as the Two Red Ones as they were ordained as monks.

See Sakya Five Superiors Collected Works for a listing of various texts written by these lamas.
