Nyo Gyelwa Lhanangpa Sanggye Rinchen(1164 - 1224)

Nyo Gyelwa Lhanangpa Sanggye Rinchen (gnyos rgyal ba lha nang pa sangs rgyas rin chen) was the only child of both of his two parents, he had two half brothers and two half sisters. His father was Nyo Drakpa Pel (gnyos grags pa dpal), one of the four most powerful and wealthy men in U-Tsang in those times. He was not only wealthy but a religious person as well, a bearer of the special Guhyasamāja lineage that came from his famous great-grandfather Nyo Lotsāwa Jungpo Yonten Drak (gnyos lo tsa ba 'byung po yon tan grags), Marpa Chokyi Lodro's (mar pa chos kyi blo gros, c.1012-1097) traveling companion in India.

Drakpa Pel, although a layman, often gave Guhyasamāja teachings and initiations to monks. On these occasions, his son Lhanangpa, then known as Zibji Pel (gzi brjid dpal), would sit on his lap and be the first to receive the empowerments. Once he went with his father to Gungtang (gung thang) to visit the famous Zhang Yudrakpa Tsondru Drakpa (zhang g.yu brag pa brtson 'grus grags pa, 1123-1193). Zhang identified him as a reincarnation of the Great Siddha of India known by the name Kṛṣnācharya, in Tibetan Nakpo Chopa (nag po spyod pa).
