Drenpa Namkha (dran pa nam mkha'). Tibetan translator and disciple of Padmasambhava, originally an influential Bönpo priest. Later he studied with Padmasambhava and also learned translation. He is said to have tamed a wild yak simply by a threatening gesture. He offered numerous Bönpo teachings to Padmasambhava who then concealed them as terma treasures.
Drenpa Namkha means 'Space of Mindfulness.'
