Taklung Kagyu [IW]

The Taglung Kagyu lineage (stag lung) was established by Taklung Thangpa Tashi Pal (stag lung thang pa bkra shis dpal, 1142-1210). A great and famous master of this lineage was Sangye Ön (sangs rgyas dbon, 1251-1296). He was the founder of the great monastery of Riwoche (stag lung ma thang ri bo che). The Riwoche branch of the Taglung Kagyu almost became an independent lineage. One of its great masters, the 7th Phakchok Rinpoche, a son of Tsike Chokling Rinpoche, lives in Kathmandu, near the great Boudanath stupa.
