Ngorpa Denrab (77 Successive Throne Holders of Ngorpa Tradition)

The research on Ngorpa Denrab focuses on collecting the biographies of the 77 great masters of Ngorpa from the end of the 14th century to the present day throne holder.  Ngorpa is one of the principal sub-sects of the Sakyapa Order of Mahayana Buddhism. This research is considered essential as no comprehensive account of Ngor Denrab is yet available in English. These biographies would be of great help to future generations of students and researchers.

This research is being carried out by Ven. Kunga Y. Hochotsang, Research Coordinator, NIT.
