Buddhaśrī b.1339 - d.1432

Name Variants: Buddhashri; Drubchen Sanggye Pel



Little is known about the life of Sanggye Pel (sangs rgyas dpal, 1339-1420) other than who he studied with and, most notably, who he trained. Sanggye Pel was a disciple of the Sakya master Pelden Tsultrim (dpal ldan tshul khrims, 1333-1399) and the Kadampa master Gyelse Tokme Zangpo (thogs med bzang po, 1295-1369), who was abbot of Tārā (rta ra) monastery from 1326 to 1333.



Sanggye Pel was an important guru to Ngorchen Kunga Zangpo (ngor chen kun dga' bzang po, 1382-1456) when the younger lama, then twenty-five years old, stayed at Zhe monastery (zhe dgon).
