Following the spread of Buddhism in Tibet by Guru Rinpoche, four schools emerged: Nyingma, Sakya, Kagyü, Gelug.
H. H. Gongma Trichen Rinpoche likes to underline that different lineages of the four schools are all intertwined. Every teaching we receive from our Master carries within itself the blessings of the holy beings of all schools.
We will briefly study these lineages and some of their great practitioners, such as Machig Labdrön known as the Dakini of the Chöd practice, who lived in Tibet in the second half of the 11th century.
