The Treasury of Lives

Tsel Gungtang, to the south of Lhasa, was founded in the twelfth century by Zhang Yudrakpa Tsundru Drakpa, also known as Lama Zhang. Lhazang Khan offered Tsel Gungtang to the Fiftieth Ganden Tripa, Gendun Puntsok. Gendun Puntsok, who later became known as Tri Gungtangpa, converted the Tselpa Kagyu monastery to the Geluk tradition.
