The masters most associated with the Nyingma lineage, known as the early transmission school, are Santaraksita, Padmasambhava and Vimalamitra. The great translator Rinchen Zangpo and Atisha are noted masters in the revival of Buddhism in the Sarma or second transmission school. The Kadam school, the first of the Sarma lineages, was established by Atisha. The other schools include the Gelug, Sakya, and Kagyu. The founder of the Gelug (new Kadam) lineage was Je Tsong Khapa; his two chief disciples were Khedrup Je and Gyalsap Je. The Sakya lineage was founded by Khon Konchok Gyalpo; his son Sachen Kunga Nyingpo was the first of five great masters who helped establish the Sakya Lineage. The others were Sonam Tsemo, Drakpa Gyaltsen, Kunga Gyaltsen (Sakya Pandita) and Drogon Chogyal (Pakpa). Marpa, Milarepa and Gampopa are the early teachers who are the renown in the Kagyu lineage.

Guru Padmasambhava

The Dalai Lamas, the religious and temporal leaders of Tibet, have also been a chief motivating force for Buddhism throughout Central Asia for centuries. The influence of the Great Fifth Dalai Lama was very important in that he consolidated the religious and political systems, limited sectarianism and eliminated the feudal authority that had been prevalent in 17th century Central Asia. The Thirteenth Dalai Lama travelled extensively throughout Tibet, China, Mongolia and India teaching and promoting peace between the different nations and cultures.
