The Sakya tradition is one of Tibetan Buddhism's four schools. Its origins may be linked to the eleventh century when a monastery was founded in the town of Sakya in southern Tibet. It is directly allied with the Tibetan Khön family. This family, whose ancestors are supposed to have arrived from the divine world of bright light, has been responsible for spreading the Buddha's teachings in Tibet since the beginning. Khön Lu'i Wangpo was one of the twenty-five primary students of the famous Indian master Padmasambhava and was one of the first seven people to be ordained as Buddhist monks in Tibet in the eighth century. In 1073, Khön Könchog Gyalpo established a monastery named after the "grey earth" (sa-kya) of the surrounding hills, as predicted by the Indian teachers Padmasambhava and Atisha. This laid the foundation for the Sakya tradition. Khön Könchog Gyalpo trained under Drogmi, the translator who introduced the new tantras from India to Tibet, supporting both the old and new transmissions. His son, Sachen Kunga Nyingpo, also known as the "Great Sakyapa" (1092-1158), and four of his descendants are considered the tradition's five greatest founders. Sachen Kunga Nyingpo collected Viele sutras, tantras, and oral traditions, and these teachings were the foundation for the Sakya school's canon. Sönam Tsemo (1142-1182) and Jetsün Drakpa Gyaltsen (1147 1216), his two sons, were the next lineage holders and essential to the tradition's development. Drakpa Gyaltsen's nephew, Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen (1182-1251), was a prolific Sakya Pandita Kunga Gyaltsen whose fame spread well beyond Tibet's borders. He was also summoned to the Mongol lord Godan Khan's court due to his unparalleled erudition in all major and minor subjects of traditional Indian studies, as well as his spiritual enlightenment. Drogön Chögyal Phagpa (1235-1280), Sakya Pandita's nephew, was named Imperial Preceptor by Kublai Khan, the Emperor of China, and was given the thirteen provinces of Tibet. In this way, Tibet was united under a single spiritual and political authority.
